Centro Ecologico Akumal, Akumal

(4/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • We leave the hotel and stopped a taxi that took us there and the truth is that we were surprised and we love spent a good day the truth

  • The Foundation's work is excellent. and interesting, both for adults and for children. But there is little diffusion and little time to make the visits to the site. The hotels in the area do not have information available to tourists, except that manage tourism in particular enterprises and high costs. A place to not miss.

  • It is a place where I could live with the turtles will feed there, with snorkeling you can swim near the beach and see these animals swimming very close to one, really recommended.
