Akumal Travel Guide

Akumal, “Land of the turtles”

Akumal in Mayan means “land of the turtles” and has incredibly clear bays to snorkel in like Half Moon Bay, Aventuras Akumal Bay and the greater Akumal Bay.  Spend a day at the main beach in Akumal and bring snorkel gear to catch a glimpse of the sea turtles while exploring the crystal clear waters.  Or spend the day at YalKu Lagoon and snorkel.

Aside from the water activities to enjoy in Akumal, the small village has great restaurants and shopping and is very close to eco parks like Xcaret and Xel-Ha. Spend your vacation at a fantastic beach front house for rent in Akumal!
