If you dream of escaping life and vanishing into a Jungle retreat then you need to come to Akumal. There are so many hidden jungle retreats here. From Luxury resorts to camping. Akumal beach is well known as somewhere you can swim with turtles for FREE.
Akumal has grown so much in the last 15 years, despite repeated visits by tropical storms - it's a flourishing resort destination. There's a lot of great spots to go snorkeling in the area. If you stick to the crescent shaped Akumal Bay - you'll see sea turtles and have a lot more competition from other tourists and little boats. There's also a local requirement to wear a personal flotation device to ensure you don't brush against the reef by accident. More proficient swimmers should bring, borrow or rent gear and head off to beaches solo (X-cacel is a good one) to find reefs and fish to admire. The little tourist village of Akumal has several restaurants - some good vegetarian options - and plenty of opportunity to meet locals if you step away from the tourist area.
Excellent place to visit. Gorgeous white sand beach. You will be able to snorkel and see turtles
this protected area is home to barracuda, fugu, tons of fish and sea turtles. get here early as the bay can become crowded. most come here to snorkel.
