Akumal, Mexico

In the start of my Central America trip I visited a beach in Akumal, Mexico. Akumal was founded in 1958 as a place for scuba diving and has today more than 1000 inhabitants. The city name “Akumal” means “place of the turtles” which is a very good description of this place which you will notice if you go snorkeling here.
