 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, kick back in your condo and relax!  Maid service is provided 6 days a week.  Please inquire with us or your caretaker for services like babysitting, cooking, grocery shopping and massage.

Yal Ku Cai- Condo1E 

This studio on the third (top) floor is perfect for a couple on the lookout for an escape from everything but each other. The expansive windows make it possible to wake up in the morning almost surrounded by Caribbean views from your king size bed in your air-conditioned bedroom. This studio comes well equipped with a kitchen area and breakfast bar, a living room with TV, dining area, shower and a very sunny third floor terrace highlighted by new beautiful grand windows and complimented by large sliding glass doors for views and lovely breezes. The condo has been recently tiled and has a high speed internet connection.  We like this studio for its spaciousness, views, comfort, tranquility and affordability.

My husband and I had a lovely time in this beautiful condo over the sea. The view is fantastic, and we loved riding the provided bikes into town every day in search of the area's best tacos. We also loved walking north along the shore to Yal Ku lagoon, and snorkeling in half moon bay. Everything was clean, and our hosts did a great job making us feel like we were right at home. One minor "hiccup" was a power outage on one of the days, but our hosts did a great job making sure we were fine and seeing if there was anything they could do to help.

Place just like the picture. Hard to believe but true. Super clean place. Attentive staff. Beautiful and quiet location by the ocean. Had everything that you need. FYI this place is NOT Cancun or Playa del Carmen, with Lous music, bars and tons of shops. This is a place to get away from all of that.

This clean, bright, colorful apartment with panoramic ocean views provides the perfect launching pad for a glorious vacation. Photos on the website are accurate. The staff is incredibly efficient, helpful and kind. We loved being able to park our car for long stretches (free parking) and walk to restaurants, snorkeling. Speaking of which, the proximity to the lagoon is an amazing "plus." We loved renting a palapa for about $20 bucks (US) a day and hanging in our hammocks and hanging out with the iguanas between swims. Lovely pool. Quiet setting. Great hosts who respond to any question right away.

What can I say really, Yal Ku Cai is Perfection! Beautiful property located out on the point with panoramic ocean views and plenty of trade winds to keep you cool if you don't feel like running the AC. The staff is the perfect balance of attentive without being intrusive and incredibly helpful. These condos provide many of the benefits of a hotel but in a quieter setting. The owners live on site and are so kind and friendly. You really feel taken care of at Yal Ku Cai. We stayed 8 days in the penthouse studio E1 where we made good use of the well appointed kitchen and lovely little pool. Just steps from the property is access to excellent snorkeling in Half Moon Bay, we saw all the usual suspects plus a giant tarpon, many reef squid and even a sea horse! Just steps down the road is Yal Ku Lagoon which will run you about $14 a head for entry plus $5 mandatory life vest rental. But we found it to be totally worth it. Our 7 year old daughter was new to snorkeling and it was the perfect spot to get her comfortable. Beautiful and filled with tons of fish. Go early when they open to avoid crowds. Our favorite restaraunt was Que Onda just half a block away, excellent tacos at lunch and homemade pasta at dinner. Imelda's Ecocina in Akumal Playa was our other favorite, best fish tacos in town! We bought fresh tortillas every couple days at the tortilleria in Akumal Puebla and took a couple trips to Chedraui in Porta Adventuras to keep our kitchen stocked. There are also a few little convenience stores in town but they are more expensive. Change your money at the bank ATM in Akumal playa, low fees (49 pesos) and you can get up to 5000 pesos out at time. Do some shopping from collective of the local Mayan artisans in between the ATM and Imelda's, they are super friendly and many of the items are made nearby. We just loved Akumal and we really felt like we lucked out with Yal Ku Cai condos. There are at least 3 other units there if the studio does not fit your needs, or you are looking for multiple families. I miss it already and can't wait to go back. Yal Ku Cai just feels like home and we will certainly be returning.

This is probably the best view I've EVER had from an Airbnb. Pure ocean bliss. The listing's pictures look unreal, but they are legit. The space is well furnished, and right at the quiet end of Half Moon Bay in gorgeous Akumal. Perfect for fishing Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Stay as long as you can, and take JP's tour of cenote Santa Cruz!JP was really cool, along with his cenote tour. The actual place was legendary. What a view!
