  • There's a lot of misinformation out there and all the rules were changed a couple of months ago. Here's the real deal about swimming with the sea turtles as of June 2. The government has roped off the...  more »

  • 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!
  • great guys excellent dive sites
  • 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!!
  • Absolutely amazing experience.
  • You don't need to pay to see turtles, beautiful place and well that is cared by authorities
