About Akumal

Situated in the heart of the Riviera Maya, Akumal "Place of the Turtle" is an intimate resort that is located 100km (62 miles) south of Cancun on the Mexican Caribbean coastline of the Yucatan peninsula.

It has grown considerably since its beginnings in the 1950’s as an exclusive resort for scuba divers, yet still maintains an unhurried, relaxed atmosphere. Akumal has escaped the hassles and hurries of most of the areas’ larger resorts. Akumal still remains a secluded hideaway where you can truly get away from everything.
