“Swim with sea turtles, nuff said.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

A gem hidden from the masses and unique opportunity to swim with wild sea turtles. Not as exciting as sharks but pretty cool no the less.

“Akumal Snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We took our kids here from hotel (took a 5 minute taxi ride) and brought our own snorkel gear and lifejackets. Kids just played in sand and we took turns snorkeling. Was so fun and saw the large turtles feeding off grass on bottom of ocean floor. Very fun and there were sting rays and I saw an eagle ray! WOW....there are tours to here but we just went on our own and ate food at the Turtle Bay Bakery and Cafe. Walked down sandy paths and found it based on reviews on here. Thanks. Outdoor eating under the shade.

“Nice Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The beach is nice and relaxing--exactly the picturesque white sandy beaches one conjures to mind when day dreaming about a warm tropical vacation.
