Akumal

Akumal

A small test of what the Riviera Maya can offer you in natural beauty, marine fauna and calm waters

 

120 kilometers from Cancun and only 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen is a spectacular and quiet bay with a length of 5 kilometers called Akumal, its transparent waters make it easy to watch turtles, schools, manta rays and other aquatic creatures that inhabit these waters.

 

Respect for the flora, fauna and especially the turtles, is part of the culture in Akumal, they inhabited these beaches and waters thousands of years ago so they have habits recognized by all the locals, in the months of April and May spawn and in the months of July and August the beaches are covered with small traces of the offspring, whose instinct directs them in a furtive race towards the warm waters of the Mexican Caribbean. And although this alone would be a great reason to visit this place, there is much more to see and do.
