Cannon House

Central Akumal, Akumal, Mexico


  • The Most Historical Home in Akumal Bay

    If you are someone who appreciates history, culture and tradition then you will get excited about Cannon House Suite!

    It is one of the most historical accommodations in Akumal and, one of the very few that is truly situated right on the Akumal Bay. Yes, right on it and not just close to the famous spot or within walking distance or some blocks off Akumal Bay, as other accommodations are.

    Just a few steps from your bedroom you will find yourself in the warm Caribbean where you can opt to go swimming, snorkeling or just getting embraced by the sun on the fine sands.

    If These Walls Could Talk You Would Know Akumal’s History

    But that’s not what makes Cannon House Suite so unique. Each of its rooms carries an interesting tale which every resident in Akumal knows about, and in fact, you can claim to have stayed at a place with a rich historical significance!

    To give you the details, Cannon House Suite was built by the very person who founded Akumal, Don Pablo Bush Romero, a well-known explorer and archeologist.

    And the cannons displayed on the property were among Don’s famous finds from wrecked Spanish ships off the Quintana Roo’s Caribbean coastline. In fact, the artifacts in Cannon House are so important that they paved the way for the creation of the CEDAM or the Conservation, Exploration, Diving, Archeology and Museums, founded by Don Pablo. Other finds by Don Pablo and his group are on display at a CEDAM museum in Puerto Aventuras, some fifteen minutes north of Akumal.

    So while you might think that a Mexican honeymoon or weekend getaway is all sun, fun and restful evenings, think again!

    Staying in Cannon House Suite IS Such a Great Idea!

    The house is not only a historical gem, it is also a comfortable getaway for a weekend, honeymoon or long family vacation. Besides its amazing location and rich history, it now offers all the modern comforts that you look for in your vacation that Don Pablo could only dream about, like air conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi Internet and daily maid service.

    Cannon House Suite itself consists of two spacious bedrooms, romantically decorated private bathrooms, a cleverly-furnished living room, a big ocean view terrace overlooking Akumal Bay and a fully equipped kitchen. However, with the lovely Lol Ha Restaurant & Beach Bar just minutes away from your house, you might not want to worry about cooking while on vacation.

    There are also other activities available in the area such as sailing advenutres, scuba diving in the Caribbean on the second largest barrier reef in the world or exploring local restaurants and shops.
