    Visit Akumal - a turtle-y tropical place

    The name Akumal translates as the Land of the Turtles, and it's easy to see why. Home to hundreds of these cute underwater critters, Akumal is a charming beach resort which has been popular with the scuba diving set for decades. If deep sea diving is a little out of reach, book an Akumal vacation rental right on the beach and try your hand at snorkeling. By day, take a sailing trip or swim with green sea turtles, and by night, kick back with margaritas and barbecued lobster in one of the many beach bars overlooking the ocean.

    Get down and divey on Akumal Beach

    One of the Yucatan Peninsula's oldest resorts, Akumal's sugary white sands and turquoise seas are like a picture postcard. It's popular with divers and snorkelers who come to explore the rich marine life that lies just under the surface. Swim through an array of colorful tropical fish, but watch out for the resident stingray and barracuda! If you don't fancy getting wet, why not book a catamaran sailing trip or a dolphin-spotting boat excursion? Book an Akumal vacation rental between Akumal Bay and Half Moon Bay, and meet the resort's most famous resident, the endangered green turtle.

    Swim with the turtles and discover ancient Mayan ruins

    Akumal Bay is where the turtles come to lay their eggs from May to November. For a more intense and up close experience, drop into the Centro Ecologico Akumal (CEA), which protects the reef and turtle nesting area. For a few pesos you can also book a private guided tour of the reef and swim with the turtles. One of Quintana Roo's famous sunken pools, Cenote Chikin Ha, is 9 miles north of the resort. Or embrace Mexico's ancient heritage with a visit to the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum, a 20-minute drive south.

    Akumal promises year-round fun in the sun

    Akumal, and the entire coast of Quintana Roo, are blessed with consistent year-round sun. During spring and fall, temperatures are generally in the high 70s and 80s, and during the peak summer months the mercury can hit 100 degrees fahrenheit. It's rainy season between June and December, but the showers are usually short and sharp, and you'll be dry within moments. Even in winter, the region is pleasant to visit, with temperatures sitting around 60 degrees. The crowds have dispersed and you can get the best pick of Akumal vacation rentals.

    Loving life on the Mayan Riviera

    Overlooking the Caribbean Sea on Mexico's famous Mayan Riviera, Akumal is one of the coast's oldest resorts. A mile or so north of the resort is Cenote Yal-ku, a natural lagoon and nature reserve that is popular with locals. This sheltered rocky inlet is surrounded by palm trees and a sculpture park, and is a home to sea turtles, manta rays, and rainbows of tropical fish. There is an entry charge of a few pesos, which goes towards preserving the lagoon. As well as palapas (cabins) for hire, there are changing rooms, lockers, and a snack bar.
