Akumal means “place of turtles”, the name of this enchanting town of the coast of Riviera Maya, which each year receives different species of turtle seeking to nest on its beaches. This is one of the main attractions, but the town in itself is also worth visiting, as few places on this coast are as charming and peaceful as this, being able to maintain its balance with nature.

Akumal extends in parallel with its beautiful coast, with a few premises dedicated to tourism, especially the restaurants and bars which have the beauty of the Caribbean Sea as a terrace, the best accompaniment for any typical meal from the region. We also find several diving schools that invite you to enter these mysterious waters, but the most impressive experience you can have here is certainly swimming with turtles in their natural habitat. If you simply wish to swim in a different place, in this town we find the Yal-Ku cove, a unique place which is the outlet for underground fresh water, where you will be able to snorkel to discover the multitude of fish which populate these waters.
