Akumal, The Mayan name of the small town means “place of turtles,” after the numerous green and loggerhead turtles that make their nests on the beach. This spot on the Riviera Maya (that area south of Cancun, through the Sian Ka’an Biosphere) is nothing like the other towns on the coast. It’s got a certain laid-back factor that the others, with crowded streets and beaches, lack. Because of that, it’s an ideal place to learn to dive.
