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.
