Luxury Villa on Yal Ku Lagoon: Casa Delfin
Akumal, Yucatan-Mayan Riviera, Mexico
Additional Location Information
We are located in the small town of Akumal directly on the Caribbean Ocean in the heart of the beautiful Mexican Riviera Maya. Only 60 miles south of Cancun airport, the town is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the party towns of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. In fact, it is the only place that retains the old laid-back, relaxed atmosphere that existed before the resorts took over much of the coast.
Akumal has plenty to do with good restaurants, shopping, two beaches, diving, snorkeling and more. It is also ideally located for excursions to Mayan ruins (Tulum, Coba, Chichen-Itza) as well as other beaches, golf, nearby towns (Tulum, Playa del Carmen), tourist attractions (Xel-Ha, Xcaret, Xplor, Hidden Worlds, Achten-Chen), and more.
Our private complex is located directly on Yal Ku lagoon with magnificent snorkeling. With two private entrances, you have free access to the lagoon whenever you want. Because the lagoon has no waves, the snorkeling is ideal for children or inexperienced snorkelers as well as experienced snorkelers. We strongly recommend using vests while snorkeling and provide a variety of sizes from infants to adults.

Kind vibes in akumal
We left Long Island in the early winter, having already experienced two months of snow, ice and bitter cold. We were delighted to arrive at the Casa Delfin and were struck by its unique warmth and beauty. The house sits seamlessly in nature, looking over and backing into a natural swimming and snorkelling pool. For those who appreciate underwater worlds, this pool offers a peek into a different universe filled with magnificent fish. We had a blast picking up local fish at the Cueva del Pescador and cooking them in the well-equipped kitchens of the Casa Deflin. We walked to the beaches on the open Caribbean Sea, and also made it into town to drink Margaritas and watch the sunset. We would do it again in a heartbeat and hope Casa Delfin will be available to accommodate us the next time our schedule permits such a trip.
What an amazing oasis
We were at the Casa Delfin and I had no idea what to expect. It was my first time in Mexico and I fell in love with the area, thanks to the house and its location. Located directly on a snorkling Lagoon this house is spacious, charming and most of all the perfect house to bring family or friends. We definitely will go back to Casa Delfin... hopefully soon. It's a true Oasis in Mexico! Highly recommend it. The owners were so easy to deal with and the people who took care of the house were so nice and helpful that when we needed anything... it was there moments later. What a fun vacation this was!
What an incredible pleasure to enjoy a week in what can only be described as another World. Never before has a vacation location made it so easy for me to put down all thoughts of work and other business. Instead I was transported to a worry-free, stress-free world filled with incredible experiences, tastes, people, and opportunities to explore. All that could have made it better would have been another week!
Everything we wanted!
Review This was a return visit and our favorite place to stay in akumal! Perfect for our family and extended family with so many areas in the house for togetherness or some privacy when needed. The Yal Ku unfortunately has been discovered by tour groups but we found if we went out in the early morning it still felt like "our Lagoon". Afternoons were much too crowded for our tastes but still lovely to look at. Rene and Lucy are the best. They prepared a wonderful birthday dinner for my husband and couldn't have been more gracious. We love Casa Delf&iaute; and akumal but much more crowded now than we remembered, bound to happen I suppose with such a beautiful spot. Look forward to our next visit.
Wonderful villa in a wonderful place
Anyone who has a chance to stay at Casa Delfin should do so. The house is beautiful, spacious and relaxing, and is right on a lagoon where the snorkelling is superb. Birdwatching and other activities are all around, and the service was great. Akumal is a great village, with restaurants and bars under palapas on the beach. This is a great place! We've been back several times.
The most relaxing place...
We arrived in akumal at night by rental car and actually missed the turn twice because the road to town was under construction. As we drove to the Lagoon, we wondered if we were really in the wilderness. Then, we arrived at Delfin. We were met by the staff and welcomed. Our every need and want and even wish seemed to have been anticipated. We had the rest of our lifetimes - and my girlfriend actually accepted my marriage proposal within the Delfin. We are now happily married.
