The heart of Mexico's Riviera Maya, small but busy beach town of Akumal represents one of the world's premier diving locations.
You've now added Centro Ecologico Akumal to your itinerary. Kids will appreciate attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Cenote Santa Cruz. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Xpu-ha Beach and Aktun Chen. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at La Playa Xpuha, stroll through Akumal Beach, explore the activities along Cenote Jardin del Eden, and explore the galleries of Mexicarte.

For ratings, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Akumal road trip planning website.

The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.

The adventure continues: get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, explore the world behind art at Museo Frida Kahlo, and observe the fascinating underwater world at El Acuario de Playa.
