    If you're staying in Cancun or Playa del Carmen, you should definitely spend a day snorkeling here. I was able to see so many huge sea turtles swimming rather close to the shore. One of the best snorkeling experiences in Mexico!

    Akumal is absolutely spectacular as a snorkeling spot. The reefs house many different types of sea life and this is also home to many sea turtles. The current is very gentle and returns to shore so this is a great place for snorkelers of all skill ranges.

Description:

Akumal is a small beach front tourist resort community 62 miles south of CancĂșn, between the towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum. It is located in Tulum Municipality in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. The 2010 census showed a population of 1,310 inhabitants. Akumal means "place of the turtles" in the Mayan language. The town was officially founded in 1958 as a community for scuba divers by Pablo Bush Romero, a Mexican businessman, diver, writer, historian and archaeologist. Pablo Bush's family still owns a large portion of Akumal, including the largest resort/hotel Hotel Club Akumal Caribe.
