Lovely beach, lots of sea life, even seen turtles!! Only issue is the seaweed, there is tons of it, but that can’t be helped, it is nature after all!

This is a beautiful beach on the riviera MAYA. At this beach you can snorkel and see turtles in their natural habitat. It was a great experience. Great tiki bar on the beach as well.

First of all the water was a nice 30 Celsius in late July. It was almost too warm. The beach a beautiful fine white sand with lots af sea life to enjoy. It took me all of 20 minutes to see the first turtles.

Visited in April, beautiful beach, lots of wildlife and good options for diving and snorkeling. Pretty much what everyone has already said, I second that.

If you are talking about at the beach then I guess anything at your own risk. Some resorts have lifeguards. If you are talking about hotel pools I guess every hotel has its own rules.

Zoetry does focus on these subjects and will be your best choice. Secrets Akumal has yoga but no meditation. Both resorts are great. If you go to Secrets Akumal ask to meet Erik Rodriquez the Sous Chef a wonderful person.
