Where to stay in Akumal

For comfortable beachfront options near the town itself, look to Half Moon Bay, whose curving coastline serves as the hub of diving and other beach activities in the region. Budget options can be difficult to find in Akumal and in the neighboring coastal towns--expect to pay the same, if not more, per night in the nearby town of Puerto Aventuras.
