We had a relaxing family vacation. However the beach was full of seaweed which made it hard to get into and out of the beach... Nevertheless we had a fun and amazing time around... We however, did not spot any turtles :(

I stayed in a hotel next to this beach after reading reviews on the turtles. Unfortunately I only got to see a turtle once but it was worth it. They aren't as common as I thought they would be (maybe just the time of year?)....More

If you are talking about at the beach then I guess anything at your own risk. Some resorts have lifeguards. If you are talking about hotel pools I guess every hotel has its own rules.

Zoetry does focus on these subjects and will be your best choice. Secrets Akumal has yoga but no meditation. Both resorts are great. If you go to Secrets Akumal ask to meet Erik Rodriquez the Sous Chef a wonderful person.
