Swim with sea turtles

Today we headed to Akumal beach.

“Akumal in the Mayan language means “Land of turtles” and it is still one of the favorite places for these marine animals to spawn. ”

We hopped in a taxi and headed along to the beach where we hired some snorkel equipment.

Within minutes we saw our first turtle!!

The turtles are wild animals in their natural environment so Getting too close, touching them or trying to feed them is not allowed.

Within our hour in the sea we must have seen around 8 turtles, a sting Ray, Angel fish, a baracuda and many other wonderful fish.

Watching the turtles in their natural environment was magical!
