See More Activities

Akumal—Mayan for “place of the turtles”—is a small, protected beach community about 75 miles south of Cancún. This is one of the best activities in the area for families as the water is very shallow and calm. Put on your mask, dive in and a wonderful underwater world will unveil before you. Snorkel among majestic sea turtles in their natural habitat and create memories for the entire family to last a lifetime. The area is the second largest reef in the world and home to many colorful fish, rays and crabs that are ready to welcome you to their home.

Highly recommend going to Akumal to see the turtles in their natural setting. We rented a car and took our own equipment so that we could stay for the entire day without being rushed back onto a shuttle.

We took a private tour with Ocean Tours of Cancun and it was just enchanting. We swam with at least 7 turtles in their natural habitat. We would do it again.
