Akumal, the land of Turtles…

If you need a Shuttle in Cancun or Transportation from Cancun to Akumal, just give us a call, we can take you!

A small proof of what the Riviera Maya can offer you in natural beauty, marine fauna and calm waters. 120 kilometers from Cancun and only 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen is a spectacular and quiet bay with a length of 5 kilometers called Akumal, its clear waters make easy the constant sighting of turtles, schools, manta rays and other aquatic beings that inhabit these waters.

The respect of the flora, the fauna and especially towards the turtles, is part of the culture in Akumal. Turtles inhabited these beaches and waters thousands of years ago so they have habits recognized by all the locals. In the months of April and May they spawn and in the months of July and August the beaches are covered with small footprints of the hatchlings, whose instinct directs them in a furtive race towards the warm waters of the Mexican Caribbean. And while this alone would be a great reason to visit this place, there is much more to see and do.
