What people are saying about Akumal

Saw a lot of beautiful birds. The guide spoke moderate English but did his best. Had a super morning. We found it very expensive, not quite in proportion to the activity

The islands are beautiful and worth visiting. However, the boat was small and several people got seasick. Also, lunch had few options and little amount of food.
