Centro Ecologico Akumal, Akumal

(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Swim alongside two endangered species of sea turtle in their natural habitat with Centro Ecologico Akumal. The organization works to protect and conserve the coastal and marine ecosystems of the region, with particular focus on sea turtles. You can swim with the turtles on your own at the beach, which remains open at all times. That said, ensure you don't disturb the animals or disrupt their habitat. To learn more, go for a nighttime turtle walk with a guide to check on nests and nesting turtles, with the potential to see a female lay her eggs. See Centro Ecologico Akumal and all Akumal has to offer by arranging your trip with our Akumal itinerary builder.
