Way before we started staying at the Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort we would visit Akumal. We discovered it on our second trip to the Riviera Maya and truly fell in love with it. Aside from the fantastic snorkelling, the town is a great spot to spend an afternoon, eat, drink, shop and just explore.
Just up the beach from Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort and Secrets Akumal there is a restaurant/bar called Lol Ha. If you google it, there is a web cam that overlooks the bay on the top corner of the restaurant. The service there is great and the view is amazing. We ate at the Lol Ha last year, it was so good.
Walking past here will get you to the path that takes you towards town where you can see the much talked about Akumal Arch.
Past the Arch is shopping, food and pretty much everything you need for a day or week long stay at the beach.
I can’t imagine a trip where we don’t visit Akumal, even if just eat at the local places. I highly recommend a visit. I would like to think that someday we could rent one of the many condo’s nearby and see how that feels.
