Akumal

Beaches Nature Adventure
The heart of Mexico's Riviera Maya, small but busy beach town of Akumal represents one of the world's premier diving locations. Home to a thriving community of expats from Canada and the U.S., this seaside community first came to the world's attention in the 1920s, when explorers located a Spanish galleon that sank just off the coast back in the 18th century. Akumal vacations still appeal to history buffs, though most come here to snorkel, dive, swim, sail, fish, and laze on sandy beaches backed by upscale condos and hip hotels. Numerous local operators rent snorkeling gear and offer guided tours of nearby coral reefs, so all you have to bring is good will and a sense of adventure.
