Overall Guide : Akumal is laid back and more private than other areas on the Caribbean coast. Great scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing on a tropical fish filled reef. Location is great base for exploring Mayan ruins, beautiful beaches and jungle adventures. Car... more is recommended, but bikes and golf carts are alternative transportation. Villas and a number of low-rise condos are available to rent. A handful of good restaurants are within walking distance. Two of the best thatched-roof beach bars are the meetup destinations. Nightlife is sparse, but only 30 minutes drive to Puerto Avanturas, Playa del Carmen or Tulum for wilder entertainment.
Not to be missed swim with turtles , dive or snorkel cenotes , summer bill fishing
