Hotel closest to the turtles

We were in Playa last Feb and went to swim with the turtle one day (highlight of our trip)

So now we are thinking we want to stay in Akumal so we can see the turtle every day if we want....what hotel is closest to the area the tour boats take people to swim with the turtles

The ABR is the only one where you will see turtles everyday. Just a small swim off shore and you can see lots of turtles.

There are a few places right on Akumal Bay where you can just swim out to the turtles.

One is the ABR, which is an all-inclusive, casual resort. The other is Hotel Akumal Caribe which is NOT an all-inclusive but is also on Akumal Bay.

Have fun

Good call Heidi.

We stay at ABR and go for 2 snorkles a day for about 2-4 hrs. Wonderful exercise.

Also gives you the opportunity to snorkle anytime you want

At the Caribe, you can charge food at the nearby Lol-Ha rest. with a 10%coutn but it's not an AI
