The Yak

Calle 10 norte bis

Description

With a bar offering the best prices on drinks in the neighbourhood, people plan to stay for a few days and end up staying for weeks at this home away from home on one of Mexico's best beaches. With two communal kitchens, bright airy dorms, a rooftop terrace, private rooms and apartments with fully equipped kitchenettes - there is an option to suit every budget.

For travellers looking for something to do in Playa, The Yak hosts a changing schedule of activities, ranging from Mojito and Guacamole lessons, trips to nearby Cenotes and beaches, pool parties, movie nights and much more. Our mentality has always been "There are no strangers here, only friends we haven't met".

Whether it's meeting someone new at the bar or heading with a group to nearby Playa Akumal on a tour, you're guaranteed to leave The Yak with new friends and fond memories.
