We stayed at Dreams Tulum only 15 mins from the beach at Akumal.
Hotel tours were very expensive . Took a private taxi to the beach and got there by 8 .15 am.
Entry to the beach is from 9 am and cheap , but...More
This used to be a really beautiful place but is now a hot spot for a tourist rip off. You pay to access the beach and then it’s only 20 metres of sea unless you pay more money!! Madness! The money you pay certainly isn’t...More
After reading a ton of reviews, we were skeptical about this place but still decided to give it a try anyway. We were not “harassed” by anyone regarding tours but maybe because we were early and the beach was still quite empty. Yes we were...More
As many of you probably know, there’s a lot of confusion about what’s required to enter the turtle snorkeling area. You do not need to buy a tour or be escorted; ignore them all. Pay 100 pesos pp at the ticket counter and then go...More
Akumal Mexico is a charming location one and a half hour South of Cancun. We decided to not rent a car and rent a golf cart. From the airport we used Cancun.Valet with private transport which was one hundred and eighty round trip with an...More

It's best to go early in the morning so visibility is good. I've snorkeled here many times in the past, but recently it's gotten much more difficult to access the beach. I read that the only people with any legal authority are police officers and...More
Akumal Bay is supposed to be the calmest most beautiful place to swim with sea turtles. It is great that we did this on a tour because had we not, the ability to get through the gauntlet to gain entry would be difficult at best....More

About 100m inland from the beach, as you pass through the archway into the sort of 'town' area if you like (where the taxi you get there will drop you off) there are taxis galore, just tell one where you're going and they will oblige. I will mention however that some are more safety equipped than others, one we saw didn't even have seat belts.
