Akumal, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico


Located about 100 km south of Cancun, Akumal's bays are popular vacation spots on the Riviera Maya.  It features many rental villas and condos,  a market, shops, restaurants, snorkeling, diving, and lazing around on  white sand or rocky coral beaches. The beaches are part of the endangered Green Sea Turtle habitat and the community is ecological aware and focused on preservation. ("Akumal" means "place of the turtles" in the Mayan language).

This was a popular beach on this warm, sunny weekend day.

This is what happens when you fall asleep in the sun lying on the beach without enough sunblock.

And this is what happens when you don't.

I think I'll get out of the sun.......

  2. I only have about 10 webpages bookmarked on this computer but one of them is the Akumal Webcam page. I could look at the beach all day long.
    The camera is on the Lol Ha Restaurant on the beach. You should give us a wave!
