On the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula but away from the bustle of Playa del Carmen and other resorts on the Mayan Riviera, Akumal has maintained a delicate and simple charm that will delight lovers of nature and calm. Its beautiful crescent bay, enclosed by a coral reef, is a must-visit on Akumal holidays, and you should take the opportunity to learn how to dive and (if you’re exceptionally lucky and time it perfectly!
) watch the turtles that return every year to lay their eggs. While here, take a trip to the nearby Mayan site of Tulum. This beautiful site has an interesting history as well as lovely views as the main pyramid overlooks a white sand beach and the biosphere reserve of Sian Ka'an, which is home to many species of seabirds.
