Forget about bland hotel rooms, noisy next-door neighbors and crowded beaches! There is a better way to enjoy your Riviera Maya and savor your Caribbean vacation! And ’the better way’ would be having the privacy, comfort and tranquility of your own home while actually saving your hard-earned vacation money!
That’s exactly what makes Casitas Tranquilidad so perfect for those dreaming of a secluded, laid-back and savvy vacation.
Just imagine what it would feel like to wake up to the soothing sound of birds singing instead of being pulled out of your sleep by traffic noise. Or opening your sliding doors and admiring the lush green carpet of mangrove trees and Yucatan Jungle, instead of seeing the familiar city landscape.
Casitas Tranquilidad is truly a tropical retreat for couples or close families and friends travelling together. The Casitas actually consist of three lovely apartments: Casita Simi Ha (ground floor), Casita Trigger Fish (second floor) and Casita Yal Ku (third floor).
The Simi Ha is on ground level and features 2 serene bedrooms, each furnished with a double bed. It also has a fully-equipped kitchen and 2 private bathrooms.
Casita Trigger Fish has a very homey feel, with its cozy love seat couches, intimate dining area and a small, yet well-equipped kitchen. The bedroom has a queen bed, plenty of closet space, and there is an auxiliary single bed that doubles with pillows as a lounge in the living room. Another great feature of the Casita Trigger Fish is its private 2nd level balcony that overlooks the tranquil mangrove forest.
Casita Yal Kuhas an almost identical floor plan to Casita Trigger Fish with an even larger plush L-shaped couch, bedroom with a queen bed and a 3rd level elevated view of North Akumal. The ocean can be seen in the distance to the east.
The crown of the Casitas Tranquilidad is without a doubt the rooftop deck, open to guests of this great vacation property. Furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and unique wooden furniture it is an ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee or admire the sunset over a few delicious Margaritas and home-made chips and salsa.
The main reason for coming to Riviera Maya; the white-sandy North Akumal beach is just 5 minutes away from Casitas Tranquilidad. Another great reason, world-class snorkeling is close by as well. In fact you have two options; snorkeling in the Caribbean waters of Half Moon Bay or exploring the incredible underwater world of the famous Yal Ku Lagoon.
Bottom line is: if you are looking for a budget-friendly, relaxing and sun-filled vacation in one of the most beautiful spots of the Caribbean, Casitas Tranquilidad are your safe, smart and serene option!

Staff and owner were very friendly and available. Purified water was refilled without asking. They were careful to leave us well supplied for the weekends. Floors and kitchenette were well cleaned but the bed headboard was dusty and glasses often needed recleaning before use. Some of the towels need to be recycled !
Generally, those things did not spoil our stay in this very economical condo. We felt safe and secure.
This property is amazing for the price. I was perfectly happy with my stay and the staff. They were friendly and my room was clean. I did not do much in the apartment besides sleep so if you are looking for more amenities. then this isn't the place. It was perfect for me, who wanted to be outside all day and just needed a place to rest. I had friends staying on the lagoon, so I had beach access through them. I was spoiled in this sense, and can't comment on beach access because I used their private beach. Overall, great for the price and I would stay there again.

The casitas were right across the street from the jungle. Every morning you wake up to the sound of birds of all kinds. The street in front is very quiet. We loved the quick access to the beach and lagoon. Short walk to Akumal Bay, Half Moon Bay and Yal Ku lagoon, all have great snorkelling!! The suites are well attended and the staff are a pleasure to deal with. We love this place and will be regulars for years to come!!

We were very happy with the Casitas Tranquilidad. Mary, the owner, is very helpful & sweet. Pablo, the caretaker, will make sure you have everything for a great vacation. We wanted to use the bikes to travel outside of Akumal, so he went to Akumal pueblo & purchased a lock for the bikes. Later in the week, we noticed that one of tires looked a little low. He promptly pulled out an electric tire pump & pumped up the tire. We were also treated to an upgrade to the 3rd floor at no extra charge per Mary. The distance to Half Moon Bay to snorkel was not an issue, since we had bikes provided by Mary (for a fraction of the cost of the other rental agencies). We also enjoyed the use of the splash pool in the rear of the property. This is the best value in Akumal.

This casita is so cute & clean. The rooftop deck is furnished with comfy lounge chairs & tables, etc. The views from the rooftop deck are amazing- nice place to watch the birds. We were 1 block away from a nice Italian restaurant, Que Onda, and Yal-Ku lagoon. The owner of the casita, Mary, will take very good care of you & help you in any way. The casita is the best value in Akumal. We will stay here again the next time we visit Akumal.

A warm welcome by Mary (owner and manager, lives on the property)set the tone for our stay. Add a comfy mattress,a balcony facing south,peaceful atmosphere, very spacious with lots of windows (great cross ventilation)and you have Casitas Tranquilidad. If it were on the beach it would be perfect!

The property was very clean and the staff was friendly. The rooftop terrace on the main building is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We stayed in the 3rd floor apartment, and the stairs were a little tricky but the view from our terrace made it worth it.

I had an awesome 2 weeks in Akumal thanks to Casa Tranquilidad. We stayed in Casita 1 with 2 bedrooms and a kitchen which was perfect for 2 but could have fitted 4. There is a tank of drinking water in the kitchen which is replenished and bicycles for the guests to use free of charge - these were amazingly useful for going to the shops or into town. I also saw the top floor apartment which would have been perfect for a couple. Great views and lots of light. There is also a stunning roof terrace with a view of the sea and jungle. Mary, the owner is lovely and Pablo, the manager is always there to help you out if you need anything. Also it was a bargain compared to rooms in Tulum or Playa del Carmen which only costs 30 pesos to get to on the local colectivo buses. It was the perfect peaceful getaway and thoroughly recommended.

We just spent a very nice week in Simi Ha Casita. Our beds were very comfortable and the casita was outfitted with everything that we needed. The vibe at Tranquilidad is just that - tranquil, and very homey. The location is good; near enough to Akumal for its amenities and yet far enough for peace and quiet. Much appreciated was the sunset meet-and-greet that Mary hosted; a lovely bonus that we were not expecting!

Casita Tranquilidad well exceeded our vacation expectations. My husband was looking relaxation and snorkeling in the beautiful caribbean waters, We both found it here at Half Moon Bay, just walking distance from Casitas Tranquilidad , awesome sea life we saw beautiful fish, coral, sting rays and turtles. It was a wonderful experience to see the beauty that God has created for Our pleasure. As for me Iam a bird and plant lover and less than an hour after we arrived I spotted a Toucan in the tree across from our balcony. There were bright colored blue birds, oreoles and others I had never seen. The trees and plants provided food for all the birds it seemed like something was in bloom all the time. Mary the owner was so kind going beyond friendship! She takes pride in her place and has very kind and helpful emloyees such as Pablo who tends to the beautiful grounds , helps with your bags ,getting you settled in making sure your bottled water is full, and even helping Mary to prepare for Tuesday Sunsets on the Rooftop, which is another bonus of this place . One of only a handfuls of top views, which you can see more birds, more trees more!!!!! I can go on and on .

We had the top floor and the space was roomy and bright with great views. All the necessary appliances, including a hair dryer which pleased my wife! The rooftop lounge is wonderful for sunset! This location, near the end of the road to Yal Ku Lagoon, had more birds and wildlife than the beach strip, a plus for me. We saw many lovely bird sp. from the deck. A large family of Coatis, at least 20, crossed the street one by one early in the morning just below.Cute little capybaras were everywhere! Mary was very nice and willing to help in anyway.Unfortunately, the aircon broke while we were there and being Sunday there was no sevice available. It was just too hot on the top floor without so we moved to another place. Mary was very apologetic and willing to do whatever necessary to make us happy, stuff happens! For me this is the mark of good business! Taking care of things properly when things go bad. I would definitely recommend this place and Scott at Locogringo for future vacations. Thanks Mary & Scott. We''ll have better luck next time. :)

Perfect location for a young couple or single to use as a home base to explore the Mayan Riviera or hunker down and enjoy the beaches and lagoons in Akumal.
