Swimming with Sea Turtles Akumal Mexico

Swim With Sea Turtles In Akumal Mexico

The beach in Akumal Mexico is the place to go to swim with Sea Turtles right from the shore. The Sea Turtles feed on sea grasses growing on the sandy ocean floor. As an extra bonus there is a wonderful coral reef just outside the swim boundaries that you can explore with a guide. We hired a guide who provided life vests to float with and flippers to propel. If you only want to swim with Sea Turtles you do not need a guide as long as the Turtles are swimming within the ropes, which they were on this day. The whole experience can be done within an hour if you find yourself tight on time.
