A | Budget-friendly vacation rentals on the Mayan Riviera

akumal-mexico-beachMy favorite source for finding budget-friendly vacation rental accommodation is HomeAway.com. There are a few strategies which I recommend generally for finding vacation rental accommodation, but in this case if you’re interested in the area between Cancun and Tulum (including Cozumel), it turns out that I can give you a specific tip. We’ve stayed in the pretty village of Akumal a number of times. It’s a little off the beaten path and not at all a resort town, but we’ve really enjoyed the times we’ve spent there. Being halfway between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum, Akumal is also a great base for exploring the historical and natural attractions of the Mayan Riviera.
