Akumal ("Place of the Turtle" in the Mayan language) is located 60 miles south of Cancun. Catch a colectivo van on the roadside or hire a car if you're planning more than a day trip. Snorkel among coral, eels, barracudas and turtles or laze away the day on the idyllic sandy beaches of Akumal Bay. Take a Turtle Walk, dip a toe in gentle Yal-Ku Lagoon and gaze at Akumal Beach's white sands and seemingly endless clear, sparkling waters. Art and crafts are for sale in the town's shops, markets and galleries.
