Akumal Direct team has been exploring again. This time we decided to visit some of the hidden cenotes in the Puerto Morelos area. 

The southern Quintana Roo region offers the opportunity to visit one of the most impressive Maya cities in the Rio Bec region, "place of the red corn" the archaeological zone of Chacchoben.

Fifteen minutes south of Tulum on highway 307 enter the UNESCO Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve at Laguna Muyil taking the road just to the south of the archaeological zone of Muyil. One may enjoy a spectacular natural experience traveling  by boat crossing Laguna Muyil into ancient canals constructed by the Maya about 1000 years ago.


We are getting ready to make some new T-Shirts! Can you help? If so, you could WIN a 3 night stay in this gorgeous villa, courtesy of Akumal Direct.  :)

Here’s a secret: There are Maya ruins in Akumal pueblo. Tucked behind some chaparral on a dead-end street and poorly quarantined by a strand of barbed wire, you can find the ruins if you know where to look. And some do know.

A day trip to Natural Park Aktun Chen is a fantastic excursion for friends and family that is suitable for all ages.  The park is centrally located in the Riviera Maya 5 km south of Akumal on highway 307 just past Bahia Principe on the right side.
