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.

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.

This is a great place; nice, patient, staff and knowledgeable about how to introduce people (our 4 person family with a 14 and 12 year old) to the ocean, its wildlife, and snorkeling. We loved our 1 hour tour with the guide Roberto, and we saw turtles, fish, rays, and learned a lot. This center needs our support and needs... More

Pretty ordinary outing. Not a Big Bang for our buck! We were expecting to see a lot more on the outing. However, lunch after was great!

Depending on the time you dome, you will see a very informative video on what you will see in the water. Also some good tips on etiquette. If nothing else you will learn about turtles and the other amazing things in the ocean just out front!
