A refuge of peace and quiet Akumal
An extraordinary place to relax, enjoy paradise and fall for the Caribbean . 37 kilometers from Playa del Carmen, Akumal, “land of turtle”, is one of the preferred sites for turtles to spawn. However, its greatest charm is its spectacular bay of transparent water protected by the Mesoamerican Reef, and the freshwater of its caves and underground river.
In its surroundings, there are more than 200 entrances to underground caver for divers from all over the world to enjoy. Dozens of cenotes open way to underground rivers in a unique experience, the favorite cenontes for snorkeling being Azul and Dos Ojos.
It is an ideal destination for practicing other water sports such as windsuring,kayating and fishing, or if rather, you can lie on the shore and rest under the shade of its sloping palm trees.
