Akumal one of the best kept secrets of the Riviera Maya
People are always looking for great vacation spots and places to get away from the stresses of life. Whether it is in your own country or in another, there are all sorts of events to plan and do all over the world. One place that is always popular year-round is Cozumel. Cozumel offers plenty of different activities to do for the entire family and plenty of events to scratch off the bucket list you have been working on. One of the greatest things about Cozumel that many may forget when planning is that it’s just a 40min ferry ride from the mainland and Riviera Maya! What’s so great about that you ask?? What that means is that on the off chance that you want to see something other than just Cozumel you can!
One of the most popular things to do in Cozumel that is offered and will take you off the island to the Riviera Maya is the sea turtle snorkeling. This is truly an experience of its own and something not often found in other places of the world. These Cozumel snorkel tours are a one of a kind experience and are sure to leave you breathless. When you begin the Cozumel sea turtle snorkel you are venturing inside the Riviera Maya’s only natural Sea Turtle sanctuary at Akumal Bay. Akumal bay is by far one of the most beautiful places in the Riviera Maya. Everyone wants to experience those Long white sandy beaches, ya know like from the Corona commercials. Well Akumal is like that, just paradise.
The waters of this Bay are no deeper than 6-8 feet and are protected by a barrier reef where the Green Sea Turtles are often found there daily to feed on sea grass. These turtles are peaceful creatures and very friendly, (don´t get too friendly as its illegal to touch the Turtles and if one of the lifeguards patrolling the bay sees you touch them you will receive a reprimand). You will then begin snorkeling for up to 50 minutes during these Akumal sea turtle tours which provide you with an intimate opportunity to view the turtles from a distance of 3-4 feet in their natural habitat apart from the rest of the marine life of this Bay you will get to see later, such as the Manta Rays and large school of other exotic fish. When you are done snorkeling, you are able to rest on the mile long white sandy beach. There will also be a lunch buffet and open bar waiting for you.
As you can see, these Cozumel snorkel tours are an experience and adventure all on their own and one not sure to be missed. The Akumal sea turtle tours are something people from all over the world come to experience and once you take a dive inside their clear waters you will see why yourself. Cozumel snorkel tours are not the only thing to do during your stay here, and that alone is half the fun. For more information on the Sea Turtle Snorkel Experience contact us!
