Ahoy! Empty Nest Ahead

Generation X parents are heading to this beachfront paradise while their kids start their own individual paths in life. As adults face this new chapter in their lives, the "emptynestcation" is the new adventure many couples look forward to since their babymoon. After years of family vacations planned around the children's needs and schedules, parents can take off on their own guilt-free adventures. Thanks to its easily accessible location only 1 hour from Cancun airport Akumal's sandy white beaches are a beacon to couples and individuals longing for a quality vacation minus the kiddos. 

This one road town allows visitors to experience the laid-back beach life far from the hustle and bustle of nearby cities like Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. Empty nesters can enjoy budget-friendly beachfront properties at far more accessible prices than Akumal's trendy neighbor Tulum.  This small Caribbean town is right in front of the world's second-largest coral reef allowing guests to just step into the water and swim among tropical fish and sea turtles without having to charter an overpriced tour. Also within walking distance visitors can recharge and rejuvenate at Akumal's day spa, benefit from some retail therapy, SCUBA dive, and dine by the beach. Most importantly guests can rest assured they'll find plenty of beachfront venues to partake in sunset happy hours without the loud animation staff that is a signature of all-inclusive resorts.
