The most popular and well-known part of Akumal, the main bay is the epicenter of activity. Commonly referred to as “Akumal Playa,” this is the primary turn-off from highway 307, and where many people come to snorkel with the turtles. Since the area has grown rapidly there is a small access fee of 100 pesos per person. The ecosystem is monitored by a team of biologists and staff at the Centro Ecológico Akumal (CEA), also a popular pitstop for tourists. If you go, be sure to head left on the beachfront outside CEA—canons recovered from the El Matancero shipwreck dot this rocky path and point to Akumal Bay.
A little less than a mile from Akumal playa, Half-Moon Bay is a quieter residential area to the north. This rocky concave outpost is also home to great snorkeling—and fewer crowds. Take your snorkel gear and head north to La Buena Vida, consistently voted one of the Caribbean’s best beach bars, and enter from the shore there. Then have a margarita or order from their delicious menu.
Freshwater meets the sea at this inlet lagoon situated in the northernmost part of Akumal. For around $15, you can snorkel here all day—and be sure to pack a picnic lunch or grab something to go from a restaurant in town. From Akumal, take a bicycle or hire a taxi to drop you off—this one’s kind of a walk.
