We have some good friends that share a house they vacation in. It's in a small town, Akumal, on the Maya Coast, about 70 miles south of Cancun and out of the way of lots of the noise of a busy resort. This is not meant to popularize Akumal further, but just to share how lucky I feel having access to this kind of place. The top pic is their house. The next one is back yard. The bottom one is a local beach in Tulum.
