    Away from the crowd at Akumal Cove

    Beauty on the beach

    The further south you drive, the less popuated it becomes. Yet you would hardly know this due to the huge facades on the highway announcing that you have reached another sprawling development. In Akumal there are a lot of houses, a few hotels and one of the nicest beaches between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum.
    The water was warm, the people were all so HAPPY. There was a family, a couple and two sons aged possibly 6-10 who simply snuggled with each other as they stared at the ocean. No ice chests, no towels, no fighting, just the four of them together. They must have sat like that,changing positions for an hour. It was one of the nicest things I have ever seen. Maybe they were always like that, but I owe some of it o the beach.

    Boats at Akumal

    After 9 days of great seafood and mayan and mexican food, we had a hankering for some good old fashioned Hamburgers. LOL-HA on the beach at Akumal were INCREDIBLE.
