Nature / Park Wildlife Area
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.

  • I love my sea turtles! bring yer camera, don't touch the coral reef with yer fins, just takes pics & float in the middle of the ocean with yer guides. Giant sting rays too!  more »
  • Beautiful, accessible transportation, people who you collaborate with information, beautiful nature. Took many pictures with the turtles, rays, fish, water and spectacular photos, camera required a team of good snorkeling and sun cream organic or Bio.

  • Really loved. Weird arrival everyone wants to sell you the attraction finally at the end on the beach specialists, officials who for 15 bucks per person you taking him swimming in the sea and see the turtles and rays're given you a locker closed with key that you're taking a shower on arrival. A guide I highly recommend +++

  • We tried too visit it yesterday but it was closed for construction. Would be nice to have correct opening hours or directions on the website or a sign at the street. Also, it was very hard to find, it is the building behind the diving center on the right.
  • Spectacular
