  • Best beach on the sea of the Caribbean with its palm trees and accompanied by the best meals native turquoise waters

  • We were at least 4 times to visit the Center for the protection of turtles of Akumal beach. Glinanimali were controlled, there were snorkellers got in the hotels in the area, someone with collectivos to see turtles and reef. This year we booked at Akumal Caribe and ... surprise! The Center is no longer there, however there were dozens of stalls in the name of a "protected area" to ask 25 dollars to get into the sea and if you come alone you chasing each other by swimming or with tables to tell you that it is forbidden! Moral scores of tourists paying about each pet turtle, shrieking and malaria with fibropapillomatosi, filthy sea. In the face of the protected area, just a way of making money. Council bring gear, go up the beach is take a bath later, after the Secrets.

  • ... paradise location, beautiful sea and preferred place from turtles to lay their eggs at night ... even among establishments on the sand .... Unfortunately among curious tourists, raucous, cameras and mobile phones. without any respect. Also popular with Mexicans who come to the sea between boats, tops, mass coloured tablecloths and picnic, snorkeling etc. Ugly buildings agglomerate exists with supermarket and the inevitable tourist stalls idiots ... There is no future for me here .... for nature!

  • Came to akumal for the famous snorkeling with sea turtles. As you walk up to the beach many people will try to sell you tours and even an English speaking guy from San Bernardino tried to convince us that you had to have a tour guide and don't trust the other guys. Well thankfully we kept walking and came upon this place. I can't remember the price but the tours were a rip off and here you can rent all your snorkel gear and you get a locker for a very very reasonable price. DONT trust anyone on the beach telling you nonsense. You do not need a tour guide. We were able to grab our gear and snorkel within the parameters and happily saw a few sea turtles. What a great experience!
  • Friendly and helpful staff with lots of tour options
  • Nice Dive center located right on the Beach of the Akumal Bay Resort. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Safety is good! All the dives begin with a short briefing and the guides take care of the divers. We felt very comfortable and always safe. The divespots are great. Turtle guarantee :) we will definitely come back and we will for sure dive with the Akumal Bay Dive Center. Greetings from Germany!!
  • great guys excellent dive sites
  • Absolutely amazing experience.
