Akumal is a Perfect Riviera Maya Getaway
Akumal. The beautiful Akumal. The mystical Akumal.
The turtles’ place, according to its Maya language meaning. In my humble opinion, it’s a definitive place that is quite a Mexico’s Caribbean jewel.
A place where circumstances converge. A place where unique and genuine elements reunite to make this Riviera Maya region amazingly beautiful.
You can find yourself again in this remote haven with the inevitable essence of the harmonious encounter with mother nature.
Akumal is a bay. Akumal is a beach. Akumal is a turtle nesting sanctuary.

Akumal stands out definitely within the concert of micro destinations that this Mexican Republic fantastic state offers to all those explorers thirsty to experience what it’s really awesome.
Akumal is like pieces of a beautiful symphony composition. A melody made up by a crystalline turquoise sea. Made up by that fine white sand that caresses your feet at every step. Made up by the prodigious, abundant, and flourishing nature that surrounds it in the vicinities.
The “cenotes” (sinkholes) become a refreshing and thrilling paradise to experience all kinds of heavenly moments and sensations that will be recorded in your souls.
Therefore, what kind of activities can you carry out in a pristine and paradisaical place like this?
Well, mainly the fundamental art of mesmerizing your soul with a whole range of unforgettable experiences.
Let me begin with the first of them.
The art of contemplating majestic tropical flora and fauna will surely turn into a breathtaking action.
An intangible art that only seasoned and sophisticated visitors know how to “cultivate” day after day.

The second one.
Mix yourself with the sun, sand, and sea to have fun or relax in a divine way.
The third one.
Hiking guided by local experts on the routes that lead to the nearby cenotes will also be another fantastic inter-dimensional journey between you and Riviera Maya’s most hidden secrets.
The fourth one.
Swimming and diving in the “Aktun Chen,” “Yal Ku,” and “Azul” cenotes, located in the Akumal surroundings, will round off a majestic day.
The fifth one. Tasting local culinary delicacies in the restaurants located around the beach will grace your stomachs with edible Mexican Caribbean poetry.
What else can you do? Please take notes.
Photography, meditation, pleasant talks with friends and traveling companions, always catching the Maya spirit that protects these beautiful latitudes and which comes omnipresent among Akumal’s tropical delicious winds.
You can also take guided tours where you can get in contact with the underground caves that make up the Akumal’s geography.
Additionally, you can continue with the fascinating stopover series by placing your feet in the “Bahía de la Media Luna” (Half-moon bay).
About 2 kilometers (1.24 miles), the fascinating discoveries continue with this paradisaical natural treasure.
You can also find not too far from this small bay’s beach, the continuation of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef that runs from Quintana Roo’s northern shores ending in front of Honduras shores.
This coral reef boasts full marine flora and fauna collections that raises awareness of care towards Mother Nature.
I don’t want to avoid mentioning, of course, another formidable micro destination close to Akumal.
That one comes by the hand of the “Parque Natural Aktun Chen.” You can go inside a cavern and underground river that will tell you many secrets about Yucatán’s Peninsula ground composition.
A rich and abundant regional tropical flora and fauna in its surroundings will prodigiously frame those selfies that you’ll be taking home.
Now, what is the result of combining fantastic accommodation options at very affordable prices and awesome tours? Hostelworld and Musement.
Is there a Magno travel recommendation to Akumal? Sure.
Don’t miss out on spending at least two or three days in Akumal.
The Second Magno recommendation.
Hotel options in Akumal aren’t abundant.
In this way, I recommend staying in nearby Tulum. I’ve even applied this strategy on my tours there.
Of course, you can find some accommodation options near Akumal. However, staying in Tulum will save your mind and time from worries while you conquer the Maya Riviera’s heart.
Additionally, before I go, I’d like to raise a little bit of awareness on Mother’s Nature care.
Please avoid taking to Akumal, all those non-biodegradable chemicals such as sunscreens or suntan lotions.
Those spawning turtles will greatly appreciate an action from high spirited souls like you.
Therefore, you, your present (or future) children and I will have the chance to continue visiting earthly paradises like Akumal.
Thanks a lot for your understanding.
