Special Activities
Be part of the beginning of life, participate in the releasing of the turtles!
Experience the opportunity that Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort offers you, to live "Unlimited Nature." Four of eight species of sea turtles in the world inhabit the beaches of Akumal and every year they come to nest there during the months of April to September. Guests are able to enjoy unique moments swimming and snorkeling with the turtles.

Anyone visiting Akumal must take into consideration the following advice when seeing a turtle on the beach:
* Move slowly
* Do not approach the turtle until it has finished spawning and has returned to the sea.
* When walking at night along the beach, use a flashlight with a red filter. Do no leave it on for a long time.
* Turn off any light that could disorient the turtles.
* Avoid taking photos with a flash

Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort, Centro Ecologico Akumal (CEA) and other agencies do a great job in caring for the turtles, but they also need the support of the community and the tourists. Therefore it is really important to follow the above advice in order to preserve this beautiful animal.

* Exact periods for hatching turtles can vary according to environmental conditions.
