Many of these cenotes can be visited on organized snorkel-swim tours while others with signs along the road simply require a small fee to enter.

Comfortable lodging with ocean view, restaurants and a small supermarket. Akumal means 'land of the turtle' in Mayan, because it is a favourite place for these animals to spawn.

Golf: The Courses
The Iberostar 'Mayan Riviera'; is north of Playa del Carmen so count on an hour drive from Akumal. It's a par 72, P.B. Dye designed course that is set in the jungle and plays host to both a Canadian Tour Event and a qualifying round for a PGA event held at Mayakoba. It's 'All-Inclusive' meaning the price includes cart, round, food, drinks, beer, liquor and anything in the restaurant, but a bucket of balls for the range is extra. The course doesn't play particularly long but it will make you use most of your clubs, and it's the most forgiving of all the courses I will mention. Although I don't play it as much as I would like, this is my favourite course down here and it's always in great condition, with fun greens and some very interesting shots from tee to green.
Mayakoba Resort Course 'El Camaleon'; is north of Playa del Carmen so count on an hour drive from Akumal. It's a par 72 course designed by Greg Norman. This course plays host to a PGA tour event late in February every year. it has a beautiful layout that winds through jungle, mangrove and along the beach, and has been described by the pros as one of their favourite layouts for a resort course on tour. It plays very fair, with interesting hard to hit and hold greens, and absolutely stunning facilities. If you want to play the way it's set up for the tourney you need to play it from the tips, and as a 70 par. This course is by far the best practice facility.
