On one of the travel pictures you can actually see the site of Tulum looking out over the amazing Caribbean Sea.
The resort was actually pretty nice and not as huge as most hotels in this part of Mexico. The other guests were also pretty laid back which created an ideal atmosphere of total relaxation.
The animation team was professional and didn't force anybody into any activities. If you didn't want to partecipate you could just lie on the beach or spend your time how you'd liked to.
The Akumal Beach Resort had an All Inclusive formula which was great and there was always plenty of food and drinks to choose from. From Akumal we booked several excursions to the different Maya sites of Tulum, Cobà and of course the site of Chichen Itza, world famous for its beautiful pyramid temple.
Exept for the excursion to the site of Tulum we used a rental car to get from one site or town to another. This way we managed to save a lot of money and see much more of the area.
Driving through to Cancun the contrast between the two parts seemed to get bigger by the second. Cancun is filled with huge buildings and luxurious resorts and hotels that it almost feels like a different type of Mexico.
In Cancun you will also find the famous Coco Bongo club, known for its appearance in the movie The Mask.
Did you enjoy The ancient Maya sites around Akumal and have you been on a holiday in Akumal, Mexico?
