Around Akumal, Mexico

I love this guy – he was next to Turtle Bay Cafe

Lol-Ha Restaurant sits right in front of the Akumal Bay where the boats are tied up and you snorkel with the turtles. It’s a great place to have lunch or dinner and they offer entertainment at times as well.

Mexio Arte is located just through the arches on the right side. Look for the fellows holding the rope to go to Lol-Ha’s parking. They featured quality hand-crafted Mexican arts and crafts, paintings, jewelry, pottery and more. I love the bright colors and quirkiness of Mexican art!
