Here’s some snapshots from around the charming little town of Akumal, Mexico, home to the sea turtles… It’s a great place to go snorkel with the turtles, scuba dive, go out fishing or sailing, shop, and eat at one of their wonderful restaurants.
There are several dive shops in Akumal. They offer dive classes and certification and a variety of dive and snorkel excursions. Here are a couple to check out: www.akumaldiveshop.com/ and http://www.akumaldivecenter.com/
Centro Ecológico Akumal helps to create models for sustainable tourism development in the Mexican Caribbean, through research, education and outreach. www.ceakumal.org/
Turtle Bay Cafe is known for their wonderful bakery and has one of the best breakfast offerings around. www.turtlebaycafe.com/
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. http://www.hotelakumalcaribe.com/resto/
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!
That’s all for now… more later including La Buena Vida Restaurant and coatis
