Akumal and its Turtles
Akumal is a small village mid-way between Tulum and Playa del Carmen.
You'll find a magnificent beach, protected inside a bay.
It's an ideal site to enjoy the beach and snorkel, even with young kids!
Indeed, this bay, with its herbarium, represents an eating ground for turtles and makes it very likely to spot specimens in water only 2 meters deep!!
You can spend the whole day there or combine it with a visit to the Tulum ruins or the cenotes.
Contact us and we will organise your personnalised excursion like for "las chicas" : !
Come swim with the biggest fish in the sea!
From May to September this huge yet harmless fish passes very close to our coast at the North of Cancun.
We organise a complete day trip starting from your hotel and going to the North where you will embark on a boat which will take you directly to the whale-sharks.
One after the other you will enter the water with your snorkeling equipment. You will be accompanied by an experienced guide who will brief you on how to enjoy your swim without disturbing these giant sea creatures. Know that whale-sharks can grow up to 14 meters long and way up to 34 tonnes.
A unique and unforgettable experience!

Swim in the world-renowned Cenotes
Cenotes (from the Mayan word dz'onot) are pits full of fresh water (and sometimes sea water at the bottom when they comunicate with the sea through underground gaps).
They can essentially be found in North and central America and more precisely in the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.
We suggest you to come discover the wonderful light spectacles, the stalactites, stalagmites etc... The most famous Cenotes are the ones of Dos Ojos, but we also take you to discover less known and thus less frequented ones.
This trip is to be combined with Akumal (some images : )or a visit to an archiological site. A magical experience!
The Mexican Sardine Run
From December to March is this magnificent fish feed in shoals of sardines north of Cancun.
The departure from your hotel is early in the morning to go to Punta Sam where you take a boat and go in search of sailfish.
Once the sardine's school located you will have the chance to observe the sailfish feed while snorkeling. Sailfish can reach a speed of 130 km / h when hunting.
This experience is only for good swimmers as sea conditions can be difficult in the area and you must swim properly to follow the sardine's school. The lucky ones can be visited by dolphins, whale sharks or even manta rays.
