Such a privilege to be able to swim where the turtles feed. A genuinely fascinating experience.
Visited a cenote before in a cave, v cold water, but exhilarating.

I went to Akumal bay today to see turtles and fish. I have been going here for last 5 yrs. Today the free entrance to Federal free beach was blocked by private signs and they even had a ticket booth to go to beach. 100 pesos , I refused to pay , I knew the beach was free Federal zone. so I looked around and next door to ticket booth was a dive shop. I just ventured into dive shop door and out the back no problem. My wife who is Mexican asked some guides what the deal. They say the president of Mexico and friends saw a way to make more money, illegal yes. So if you go just go threw dive shop or hotel, act like you want info about diving or hotel if stoped, then say thanks keep waking, If we all don't say some thing next yr. it will go to 200 pesos. I did see turtles and filmed a few for free.

We had been lead to believe, from a number of sources, that it is possible to walk onto the beach, into the water and swim with the turtles. The truth is that you can't do that. The beaches now have fully controlled access for which you have to pay. Access to the beach alone is 100 pesos and swimming is an additional 500 pesos. We chose not to do that today and have booked a tour through our hotel which we are doing tomorrow. Look for the follow up review on that!

You will be guaranteed to see turtles of all sizes...they are beautiful to see!...there are lots if other snorkelers but you still can find one by itself now and then and get some good and clear pictures!

It‘s awsome here, every day turtle gurantee! Even when it’s crowded... its much more easy to find one when you check places where groups are, but it took me every da just a few minutes to find a lone one like it‘s on the picture! They are earing seagrass all day! The turtles are more on the left side of the bay where the seagrass is on the bottom, not at the corals on the right side!!!! Go there, but please don‘t touch ‘em!!!
