What to expect
  • Depart from your Cancún or Riviera Maya hotel and venture to Akumal in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan. On arrival, don your snorkeling gear and plunge into the glittering water alongside your insightful and informative guide. Seek out sea turtles in the protected natural sanctuary of the bay, looking out for four of the eight species of sea turtle in the world. Gaze down to the 8-foot (2.4-meter) depths of the shallow water to see sea turtles feeding on sea grass in their natural habitat.  Absorb intriguing information about the precarious and often solitary life of sea turtles as your guide explains the complex ecosystem of Akumal; explore the colorful coral reefs and troves of tropical fish as you swim in an underwater wonderland reminiscent of Finding Nemo.   Next, return to shore and venture to a stunning cenote, a subterranean natural pool surrounded by ethereal limestone carvings. Gaze at the shimmering surface, watching the light dance and the water drops echo in this ambient location. Plunge into the darkened depths and snorkel beneath the surface, looking out for fleeting fish and underwater caverns.  Dry off and enjoy a refreshing snack before boarding the minivan for your return journey to your hotel.

Realmente fue un tour increíble! Ibamos con un grupo de amigos y nuestra hija y fue maravilloso poder estar tam cerca de las tortugas en un ambiente fuera de lo convencional como un acuario. Son unos animales majestuosos y nobles. Los guías dieron excelentes explicaciones y nos pidieron ser respetuosos con las tortugas y con el medio ambiente. Inclusive nos explicaron como protegernos del sol sin abusar del bronceador que finalmente contamina el mar y contribuye al de la vida marina. Ahora estamos mas comprometidos que nunca con la protección de las tortugas y los mares. Muy recomendable
