These wonderful condos are located at the Caribbean entrance to famous Yalku Lagoon, in Akumal, Mexico. 'On The Edge', Yal Ku Cai, sits on the northern perimeter of spectacular Half Moon Bay. From the panoramic view, protected Half Moon Bay sits to the south, and the coastline of the Mexican Caribbean to the north, just where it opens to the inlet of Yalku Lagoon. From the patio you can listen to the breaking waves as you watch the sunrise over the eastern horizon! Yal Ku Cai's magic calls to mind the phrase 'on the edge', which the frequent visitors use often, as they say it is on the edge of paradise, the continent, the hemisphere; with the sea, as it has done for eons, crashing in at their feet.
Located at the quiet and mostly undisturbed end of Half Moon Bay, Yal Ku Cai is only a 3 minute walk to Yalku Lagoon or 1 minute to the sands of Half Moon Bay. Snorkeling in the Lagoon or Bay is some of the best in the Yucatan. A trip would not be complete without a swim, a refreshing drink and some shopping on Akumal Bay, an easy stop as you arrive in North Akumal. After visiting local arts and cultural shows, videos for the VCR, and a stereo will round out your vacation entertainment. Along with paradise, maid service is provided 6 days a week! Please inquire with us or your caretaker for services like babysitting, cooking, grocery shopping and a massage.
These units offer a brand new garden pool and BBQ, well equipped kitchens and balconies. Extra amenities include TV and DVD, Wireless Internet accessible in the condo's as well as at the pool, bikes in most units, air conditioned bedrooms, a video selection and library books! Please check with us to see if there are bikes for your unit.

Yal Ku Cai #1E Studio
A lovely place! Secluded and beautiful and peaceful. The staff was attentive and kind. The condo was clean and comfortable. We look forward to going back. The most relaxing vacation we have had.
Thank you very much for all your help. I always recommend Caribbean Fantasy; for having excellent service, top of the line BEST in the Mexican state of Q.R. Even though my annual plans can be challenging you always make it perfect..
I was traveling on a very strict budget and Barbara referred me to Yal Ku Cai (E1). Thank you Thank you! I travel to get away from touristy places for R&R, and this place was just a slice of heaven sent to us. The water is a tennis ball throw from the balcony. The lagoon is a mere 3 min bike ride to snorkel with bright colored fish! ($9 entrance fee and worth every dime, I promise). Being able to watch the ocean waves at night while laying in bed....priceless. I recommend riding your bike into the town of Akumal about 3 miles away to purchase groceries, cigs, and liquor. Stop by Tequilaville and the owner will steer you in the right direction for anything you are looking for. Great food there too! Snorkel gear can be rented at the dive shop cheap and at the lagoon. snorkel, mask, and fins about $8/24 hrs. That beach is where you will find the sea turtles and I also saw a manta ray. The staff and neighbors were so helpful. The bikes were such a great added bonus! A blast really, and cheap transportation. Go, enjoy, and I promise you will begin to plan your return trip!
We have booked with Caribbean Fantasy every time we have traveled to Akumal over the last 30 or 31 years I think ...Thanks! Working with your organization makes our travels all the more enjoyable. We have thoroughly enjoyed YalKuCai and are looking forward to March as well as our special trip there in December this year. What a special relationship we have!
We absolutely loved Yal Ku Cai! The homey decor made it so cozy, the view from the porch was breathtaking, and the sound of the waves in morning was something we wished we could have bottled up and taken home with us. This was the perfect place for us to to retreat from medical school and busy jobs. We can't wait to return!

We love YKC! We have stayed in #3 as well as #1E and have thoroughly enjoyed our stays the past 5 years. We missed our annual April trip to YKC this past April as we brought our family of thirteen and found another casa for the group. But we will be back in April for sixteen glorious days and look forward to seeing Humberto, Claudia and Christine once again! Jackie and Gary Bayfield, WI
As always you guys are a class act! I give you a 10 across the board on EVERYTHING! I have lost track of how many times I have rented Yak Ku Cai but it is always perfect! We will return soon!
Initially we were concerned about Yal Ku Cai's exposure out at the point of Half Mon Bay, but it turned out to be an advantage. Also there was more privacy, having a short off-road to get to the units. With the Easter season, Akumal was at capacity, but we still enjoyed the pristine peace and quiet of Half Moon Bay. Caribbean Fantasy's efficient staff (as usual!) and Yal Ku Cai get a perfect 10 from us!

While we love booking through you each year, and every unit we have ever stayed in at Yal Ku Cai, after our many years of visiting Akumal (38!) we spent some time at Hotel Club Akumal Caribe. The hotel is super - beautiful, comfortable, a perfect Akumal Bay beach location, and not overwhelmed by people...see you later this year!
We just arrived home from our wonderful stay at Yalku Cai! The condo was everything as described(a great romantic place for two), the staff friendly, helpful, and attentive, and all contributed to a relaxing and enjoyable week! Our thanks again to Humberto, Christina, and Claudia who was welcoming (with her wonderful smile), and helpful with questions or needs. The bicycles were a fun daily part of our activities. We plan to return to the area next year and will make Yalku Cai a part of that vacation. Thank you again for all of your help and assistance in planning for the trip. Best regards to all of you at Caribbean Fantasy! P.S.: We had a very good car rental experience with Caribbean Rent a Car and would highly recommend them for anyone considering a vehicle when there. They offer all necessary insurance with a "0" deductable and were the only ones we found who quoted the "total" price up front on the internet. http://www.cancunrentacar.com Aeropuerto Internacional de Cancýn Plaza Santa Fe, Km. 12.5 Loc.

Yal Ku Cai Casita
We are in the casita now, and it is lovely. It even has an ocean view! I don't know why we don't rent it more often; it really is nice. The kitchen is huge and well-equipped,and the stove even has an oven! There is a great breeze that flows through the unit, and it remains cool. We are so happy to be here.
