The ecological center provides a video about the bay and the turtles and other sea life that live in it that is worth watching before you venture out into the water. The main goal is preservation and we fully support that. The video doesn't take long at all. It explains the different zones of the bay and what the different... More

Love to stop in each time we visit Akumal. If you inquire in the office, they often have t-shirts they sell and the proceeds go to the turtle conservation. Would love to see them have a little more shirts and things to sell to go toward this conservation. Watch the video of the turtles and then go out and snorkel... More

If you are in Akumal you will want to stop in here and see all the great work these people do for Akumal and the bay. Even after 7 years of visiting this area I still continue to learn.

Actually visited in November 2012. Here's a group that reminds the rest of us that enjoying a slice of paradise comes with a bit of responsibility for all of us. From not standing on the reefs, to resisting your urge to hug a sea turtle; organizations like the Centro Ecologico de Akumal exist to educate and remind us of what... More

Sorely need of updating. A few exhibits, movie on small tv. Lots of tourists wandering through on their way to the beach. Go early am outside of busy hours

Fun walk and loved the mural inside. Also fun to see the five kinds of turtles there in the area. Worth a stop in.

We did a cruise excursion here and was alittle taken aback with security. They wanted all to leave their bags on a chaise lounge with no security whats so ever. I stayed back with my daughter on the beach while my husband took my son. The pictures he captured were great but he said one trip there was enough. For... More

We stayed right in Akumal away from the crowds in Cancun. This center is within walking distance. Love it here...I will come back to Akumal anytime. Quiet and friendly place. Great place for r&r. If you are looking a place to party - Cancun. A place just to do R&R, Akumal!!! Lots of water activities.

Friendly staff, they obviously care about the bay. Pictures are up identifying creatures found in the bay, and facilities are nearby.
