3 Things To Do in Akumal, Besides the Typical

As a local, I have visited Akumal many times, and every time I go back, I fall in love with the place over and over again. So, I would probably recommend that you do the regular, which is what I do too; but read on to find the 3 things you cannot miss on your trip to Akumal, besides the typical.

First, visit its gorgeous beach, which is never too crowded. Spend your day swimming with the turtles or lying on the sand, it is just the perfect place.

Second, go to Yal ku Lagoon, a paradise for nature lovers.

On the other side of town there’s a magical jungle. If you are an animal lover or you are traveling with kids, I also recommend paying a visit to the Akumal Monkey Sanctuary nestled in the middle of the jungle. My son just loves it! They even let him feed the monkeys and goats! 

But I am pretty sure you have heard all of these. What I really want you to focus on, is on these 3 things you cannot miss on your trip to Akumal, besides the typical.

Sunrise Yoga on the Beach

Yoga and a healthy diet are part of the daily routine in Akumal without being forced upon you. You must try sunrise yoga on the beach and receive the energy from the sun rays before starting your day. Yoga en Akumal offers private yoga sessions in your house. So, if you are staying with us at Villa Bellamar, just give them a call.

Dinner on the Beach under the Stars

After so much swimming, of course you’ll be hungry. There are plenty of delicious restaurants and many of them are located right on the beach. You can’t go wrong with any of them. My favorite is La Lunita, though. They have created a very fresh and original menu that changes every November. Its dishes fuse Mexican, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine in a very interesting and perfectly balanced way. They have unconventional vegan dishes that you must try.

Adopt a Turtle 

Symbolically, of course. Six of the seven species of sea turtles are classified as threatened or endangered. Two of these species nest on the beaches of Akumal. Since 1993, the Akumal Ecological Center (CEA) has worked on the protection, conservation and research of sea turtles. You can support them by donating or adopting a baby turtle, a mom turtle or a family of turtles! The adoption includes an official certificate, mailed to you in PDF format and much more!
