Akumal – The Place of the Turtles

A Secret Getaway

Akumal is only discovered by those in search of adventure. After your first visit you will find that you will return again and again. Why? Akumal has “Magic”,what we refer to as tropical therapy for the soul! Akumal is off the beaten track enough to provide quiet beaches yet a social experience where you can swap stories with other vacationers. We call it home, vistors think of it as home.

The town of Akumal and Akumal beaches

Akumal is a small community with sandy white beaches, swaying palms, sun, surf, and a feeling of paradise. This gem of the Caribbean has 3 beautiful bays—Half Moon Bay, greater Akumal Bay and Aventuras Akumal Bay. All of the bays are great for snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. Yal-ku Lagoon is where a fresh water system leads out to the ocean, mixing fresh and salt water. The calm waters of Yal-ku Lagoon provides more great snorkeling. The beaches are wide, the waters are calm and people are friendly. To round off the vacation experience in Akumal, you will find many services that make your stay easier. Restaurants, gift shops, dive shops, grocery stores, fun beach bars at the Lol-ha and La Buena Vida, and much more make your stay fun, social and complete.
