Playa Blanca, a wonderfully popular three-story condominium is located near the center of beautiful Half Moon Bay. Enjoy your own private balcony or patio to do some turtle watching here in season.

Playa Blanca #6
We have visited Akumal many times, this is the first time we have stayed in Playa Blanca. We all loved Playa Blanca! The beach was just an extension of the condo. It was great to be able to walk right out the door and snorkel in Half Moon Bay. We read, napped and ate on the beach, relaxing either in the sun or shade. Playa Blanca #3 is light, bright and airy. Folding doors from the master bedroom open out to the living area and to the beach, such a beautiful and relaxing view. The kids had their own space at the back of the condo, so we all had plenty of room. The staff was friendly and helpful. I have to admit, everyone used the wireless internet some, it was nice to be able to stay in touch with those back home. We even watched the TVs one night - and it helped us learn Spanish with the subtitles - educational TV!
