Riviera Maya SUR - Akumal Bay/Tulum

Riviera Maya SUR - Akumal Bay/Tulum

The Riviera Maya is one of the most enthralling destinations in the world. It stretches from just south of the Cancun airport to Punta Allen just south of Tulum. The Riviera Maya encompasses the most breathtaking tropical beaches with white and golden sand that sink into the crystal waters. In the depths of these waters lies the Great Mayan Reef which is the largest coral reef in the Western hemisphere and the second largest in the world. Hence not only divers should visit Cozumel Island. The beautiful lagoons and bays are a kaleidoscope of colour with fish and sea turtles. The Mayan Ruins at Tulum, Coba and Xel-Ha are simultaneously awe-inspiring and staggering. The accommodations in the Riviera Maya range from budget to first class five star resorts, making sure that everyone has the opportunity to experience the magic that is the Riviera Maya.

Akumal Bay:

In the Maya language, Akumal means "place of the turtles" and it is still one of their favourite places for laying their eggs. However what makes Akumal Bay is the place to see turtles swimming in the sea just off the beach in a spectacular protected bay area of transparent waters and the fresh water currents that flow through its caves and subterranean rivers. Akumal's silky white sand beaches are protected by off-shore reefs. Next to Akumal Bay is half Moon Bay again good for snorkelling but less sandy, again you will find some good beach clubs where you can enjoy the day of their sunbeds as long as you buy some drinks/lunch. Next along the coast is the Yal-Ku lagoon for the most spectacular snorkeling


The 'Jewel of the Riviera' Tulum is an authentic Mexican town with a 2 kilometre long 'main Street' crammed with shops sell Mayan-style rugs and table cloths, quality ceramics, hammocks etc, together with a large selection of family run restaurants and fish restaurants. There is a daily market keeping the town lively from dawn till dusk and later.The archaeological zone of Tulum is one of the most beautiful places on the Riviera Maya®. Combining the mystery of the ancient civilization, which inhabited this zone, with the singular beauty of the Caribbean Sea which bathes its shores, the city of Tulum is the only known archaeological site located by the sea, built in the top of a cliff facing the marvelous caribbean waters. Over sixty well-preserved structures can be observed within three massive walls which surround the site. There is a small beach beside the main temple, ideal for a swim while gazing up at the Maya's architectural wizardry. Tulum Playa is 6kms from the town easily accessible by bus, taxi (cheap) or hired bycycle (dedicated cycle paths). There are 30kms of white sandy stretching into the distance between the azure caribbean and the palm tress. Hidden amongst the palm tress are Boutique Hotels, Cabañas and villas sprinkled along this beautiful stretch of beach, they offer sunbeds and sun umbrellas for your free use - you are expected to buy some drinks or lunch during the day.

Tulum Playa:

The beach at Tulum is one of the most beautiful in the world. The first impression is one of the vibrant colours, the blue sky, turquoise sea, white sand and the green trees. The beach has become extremely fashionable with smart bars built on decking overlooking the beach and trendy restaurants all very reasonably priced.
