Laguna Yal-Kú

Top choice Swimming

in Akumal

Located 2km north of the Playa Akumal entrance, this beautiful and rocky lagoon is, without a doubt, one of the region’s highlights. It runs about 500m from its beginning to the sea and is home to large schools of brightly colored fish, and the occasional visiting turtle.

Showers, parking and bathrooms are included in the admission price, and you can rent snorkel gear. Taxis from the Playa Akumal entrance charge about M$100 to the lagoon. In an effort to protect the lagoon’s fragile environment, sunblock is prohibited.
