4.1/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • I find this beach not so good, very crowded and very many sellers. For me no highlight

  • Going to Akumal is going to see the turtles in their natural environment, is a very good and very nice experience, the place is well kept, clean, there are restaurants and stores to buy whatever you want nearby, there are very safe private parking. The only point I see against is that the gentlemen that you try to sell the tour de turtles sometimes can be very insistent.

  • It was like Stingray City for turtles and this is supposedly the slow season! Saw maybe three in total. Theses got to be a better way.
