Things to Do

Have you tried paddleboarding before? You're missing out if you haven't already! Glide out to the ocean on a paddleboard, staring at the transparent water below for a glimpse of the local sea life and enjoying the gentle waves. Because the sea is calm, Akumal Beach features a coral reef-filled inlet that is ideal for this beach activity.  If you're looking for active beach activity, this is one of the greatest things to do in Akumal. Remember to apply plenty of sunscreen!

Yal Ku Lagoon is an exquisite freshwater lagoon that meets the mouth of the ocean at Akumal's far northern tip. As a result, there is a wide area teeming with sea life! Enjoy the splendor of the lagoon while snorkeling with colorful tropical fish. It's the single finest site to find hundreds of tropical fish swimming around you.

The Riviera Maya region of Mexico is home to countless cenotes and underground rivers. However, not many are as impressive as Aktun Chen. This vast underground network of caves was once the spiritual retreat for the Mayans and they’re held in very high regard. The caves are said to date back up to 5 million years, creating a labyrinth of impressive rock formations. Stalagmites and stalactites are everywhere to be seen and the best cave is left until last, showcasing a beautiful section of the underground river.
