About Akumal: Akumal is a beautiful little beach destination just east of the island of Cozumel, between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Known for its beautiful and calm bay you will love the sandy beaches and slower pace of the more well known tourist towns. Akumal in Mayan means "place of turtles". It is important for any tourist visiting the area to fully understand and do their part to be environmentally conscious and not touch the turtles or coral on the reefs. Known for snorkelling with green sea turtles, this should be done only with certified tour guides.

Akumal Best time to visit: The best time of year to visit Akumal and most of the Mexico east coast is December to the end of April. June to October are the wettest months. Here is more information.

Is Akumal safe?: Generally speaking Akumal is very safe. Of course common sense is required when traveling anywhere. Try to travel with a partner. Don't flash expensive jewelry. Have a  good time but remain sober. Please do your research and always travel safe.

Transportation in Akumal: Unless you are going for a longer distance, many tourists enjoy riding a bike, walking or even golf carts around this one (main) street beach town. There are mini buses with some designated stops or just wave them down. Cabs are available as well. Ask the hotel concierge for suggestions suitable for you.
