  • Your Authentic Mayan Villa in the Heart of Akumal

    If you are looking for something more exciting than just a great vacation in a typical modern villa, then Casa Iguana may be just the right vacation home for you.

    Built on a half-acre lot between Akumal and Half Moon Bay, Casa Iguana is composed of two side-by-side houses: a main two-level villa and a one-level casita. Each of the houses hosts 2 air conditioned bedrooms with 2 en-site bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen and an original circular living room with a modern entertainment system.

    People who see Casa Iguana for the first time, say it reminds them of a private resort. Indeed, the layout of the house, its unique architecture and amazing outdoor living spaces make it easy to both enjoy the privacy and tranquility of your own home and to spend a great time together.

    Perfect for families or 3-4 couples wanting to hang out together 

    Despite its Mayan-like wood-finished exterior, the interiors of both houses, with their marble and hardwood floors, granite countertops and high-speed internet provide all the modern-day comforts that make a vacation even more enjoyable.

    If you get the first pick at choosing your room the best bet would be the master bedroom, located on the second floor of the villa and boasting an elevated view of the Caribbean. While kids can stay in their own bedroom located on the first floor and  furnished with 2 twin beds.

    Bigger groups will be more comfortable in one of the Casita bedrooms, furnished with two double beds and one double and one twin bed.

    The indoor spaces of Casa Iguana are complemented by the stunning outdoors, an outdoor living and dining area as well as an impressive oceanfront swimming pool. The thatched-roofed living and dining area in the exterior of the casita is an ideal spot to enjoy meals during a cookout party. You can also make use of another 12-seater outdoor dining area for more formal meals.

    Terraces, outdoor living areas and the beach

    And to make sure that you stay in shape during your vacation, Casa Iguana offers its guests a private white sand beach area designed for friendly volleyball and soccer matches.

    There is even a little private Gazebo dedicated to relaxation and siesta-time. Just picture the thatched-roof palapa, soft ocean breeze, the inviting hammocks and turquoise waters of the Caribbean sparkling in the background… A real tropical paradise.

    And the best part is that since Casa Iguana is built on a rocky section of the shore, there is virtually no one walking by or disturbing your peace and quiet (well, maybe except for your friends’ laughter or kids splashing in the pool). But this is part of having a great time and staying at an authentic Mayan Villa!
