"It's all about the R&R" Akumal by frecklesoup

Akumal Travel Guide: 82 reviews and 206 photos

Things have changed on the Riviera Maya

The last time I visited this area of the Yucatan was in 1986. Back then, there was pretty much nothin south of Cancun except beautiful beaches and the occasional small resort (if you could call them that.) Now, it's wall-to-wall All-Inclusives.

The beaches, however, are still some of the most beautiful I've seen. And if you're looking for lots of R&R, along with opportunities for some good fun--I highly recommend it!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful Beaches, Lots of activities, Friendly People
  • Cons:Some price-gouging, Crowded, Far from airport
  • In a nutshell:A wonderful and relaxing get-away
