Stopped here after snorkeling in the blue lagoon. What a lucky strike. Bar man was so friendly we left hours later fed and lubricated in modelo and fine tequila. Food was so much better than hotels. Management need to cherish this barman.

Akumal has lots of great restaurants, but Taverna is our favorite. The atmosphere is welcoming, comfortable and relaxing. The service is excellent and the food is consistently delicious. We love the homemade pasta, the seafood and the pizza. They also make a great Caesar salad....More
