Holiday Vacation in Akumal

Hi,

I am looking for a one bedroom condo for my husband and I in Akumal, from about December 23-December 30. We mostly want to relax, lay around the beach, pool, swim, and snorkel. Would like to have a unit that is beach front, but not an absolute requirement. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi!
Just don't rent a villa called Las Hamacas in south Akumal. We had money stolen from us there! Bad experince. You might make sure you have a safe in your condo/room too and USE IT!!! Feel free to e-mail me with any questions!

Chris - check out hotelakumalcaribe.com as well.

Teresa - if this is your approach to travelling (to write off an entire destination due to one bad and unfortunate experience) then you better not go to:
St. Lucia - local nun was murdered on New Years day by local rebels.
Antigua - Canadian tourist was murdered on the beach several years ago. Young lady on the beach with her family and a purse snatcher ran out of the bushes but she struggled to keep her purse and he killed her.
Jamaica - well, recent travel advisories say it all.
Aruba - hmmm, don't recall any thefts or killings while we were there or reported since that but hey, I hear tell that that wind can be murder on the hairdos!
St. Kitts - lovely place - oops, now I remember someone ranting on our bus that some airport employee had stolen something out of his unlocked suitcase. Better not go there!
Cuba - well, it's just not 'marican to go there is it
Cozumel - love, love, love, love Cozumel. Oops, that's Mexico so ya better not go there!
Might as well just stay home in the good ole US of A where nothing bad happens to tourists! Yea, right!

Very funny, Debbie. You must work for these villas/resorts down in MEXICO! I feel I can share my experiences with people, just as you are and will continue to do so. These are warnings, so people can be more cautious. Is that a problem for you? Why are you being so defensive? If anyone would like to e-mail me, I would be more than happy to share what we are now calling our nightmare vacation to Mexico!
