“Untouched”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This reminded me of how Akumal bay used to be. It was fairly untouched with just a couple places to eat and a dive shop. Uncrowded and beautiful.

“If you want snorkeling, look no further! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Sea turtles and too many colorful fish to count. We saw tangs, Sargent majors, barracuda, jelly fish, rainbow parrot fish & countless others.

“Beautiful sites to see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

If you are in Akumal, rent a golf cart just inside the arches and take off down through Half Moon Bay. The different houses and condos are fun to look at, stop at one of the few shops, and then a drink at La Buena Vida on the water! You won't be disappointed...just watch out for the bumps in the road while driving the golf cart!

“Beautiful!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Mexico is more beautiful than I expected. We loved the resorts, loved the ocean, walking on the beach!!!!!! So happy to hear that "poaching the turtle eggs" is frowned upon and the police patrol the beaches to protect the eggs from poachers!

“Turtles and then some”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

You are just swimming along checking out the coral, looking at small but beautiful fish and BAM, there's a giant turtle right next to you snacking on some greens.

Amazing.

I snorkeled there almost every day for a week and was thrilled each and every time. NOT the easiest snorkeling in the world but the Bay isn't that deep and the currents aren't that strong.
