Detailed Destinations for your Akumal Adventure
Well, we would be amiss if we did not mention snorkeling with the turtles on the main beach of Akumal. Go early in the day before the day-trippers come into town. We remind you to enjoy their beauty without touching them.
La Buena Vida on the road towards Half Moon Moon. This quintessential beach bar is fun day or night. Fish tacos are some of the best in town. Climb the crow’s nest for a private view of the bay. There is also a pool, dive shop and beach pillows perfect for making a day of it.
Snorkel Yalku Lagoon. This lagoon is a favorite spot to don a mask and fins. Mornings and late afternoons are best. The perfect family spot, just follow the North Akumal Bay road to the end and you will see the entrance. It is recommended to use biodegradable sunscreen.
