Akumal also has small vendors and stores which sell souvenirs, jewelery and groceries.
Villa Arrecife and Tourist Attractions: We understand if you want to just soak up the warm Caribbean rays and enjoy the local beaches as well as beautiful 'Villa Arrecife' itself, however if you want to truly experience the Riviera Maya and see all it has to offer, you will not be disappointed! There are a wide variety of activities to suit all tastes! Amongst the Riviera Maya family attractions you will find snorkeling, dolphins, sea lions, exotic birds, monkeys of many species, and rich flora. Xel-Ha, Xcaret, Aktun Chen, Aktun Chi, Xplor, Dolphinarius, Tres Rios Ecopark, and Crococun Crocodile Park and Regional Zoo are just a few of the larger attractions that can be found in the Riviera, but there are an abundance of smaller cenotes, botanical gardens, and an aviary located in Playacar, that are equally as fantastic! For the more adventurous there is even skydiving! Golfers can spend time at Playacar, horseback riding at 'Rancho Bonita Loma', and deep sea fishing can also be found in this aquatic paradise!
