Incredible place to snorkel and see fish, turtles, and even jelly fish! We rented a house for 12 days in Akumal and tried snorkeling in the ocean off of the house. Besides getting a bit seasick from the waves bouncing me up and down, I almost stepped on a stingray that had buried himself in the shallow water. I did see and follow an incredible turtle though. Yal-ku Lagoon was absolutely incredible. The waters are crystal clear and easy to navigate. We brought our own equipment and had the best time. Some people are complaining about the cafe there but if you want to eat, drive into the tiny town of Akumal and there is a hotel/beach bar and cafe that is incredible and less than a few miles down. We are going back to Mexico this June and I'm taking my boyfriend from the all inclusive resort just to see this! Wonderful experience for the family, couples, or friends.
