This day was one of my absolute favourite in Mexico. I had heard so much about snorkeling in Akumal. I rented snorkel gear from a shop in Tulum and then took the minibus to Akumal. Once there, I dropped my stuff on the beach and headed to the water. I swam to and from the reef on my own seeing... More

The guide we had, Yann was awesome, a great bloke who ensured that we saw as many turtles as we could. Snorkels and flippers... More

After reading all the reviews on trip advisor I added a stop in Akumal during my recent trip to Cancun and I'm glad I did. Thanks to the tips of other reviewers on TA I knew to not hire a tour, just bring my own snorkeling gear, swim up to the end of the area marked for swimmers by the... More

Snorkeling with the turtles was a dream come true!! They are truly amazing creatures. So peaceful and graceful swimming and eating the sea grass. An unforgettable adventure that I will keep close to my heart!!

It was so enjoyable and was totally amazing to be able to see these beautiful animals in their home environment. Booked this excursion as a half- day tour and was split with a... More

A must-do in Mexico! Only a 2 hour all round trip but we saw lots of sea turtles in their natural environment, rays and even a barracuda! The water was clear and turtle calm. Would really recommend this trip.

We booked a snorkeling tour from Bahia Principe property and it was well worth it!. We took a short boat ride to Akumal and we were not disappointed. The water was clear and in addition to different varieties of coral and fish we saw a lot of green turtles. We enjoyed the trip and we highly recommend it!
