Yal Ku Akumal
Visit this natural inlet at Akumal to snorkel at this water source with a lot of life.
What makes Yal Ku Lagoon so attractive is that during rough sea-days at your hotel where the water is too rough you can visit Yal Ku, which is protected from the main body of water and remains calm.
The grounds surrounding the lagoon have been manicured with paths, waterfront benches, palapas, and statues, around the lagoon are several contemporary sculptures by Francisco Zúñiga. They’re not only hidden in the forest and gardens as you walk towards the lagoon, but there is also some right out in the middle of the water.
Why you should consider visiting Yal-Ku instead of Xel-Ha in Mexico.
In Quintana Roo, the state which runs down the Caribbean coast of Mexico, there are a few water-themed adventure parks. Xel-Ha is one of them. It’s an aquatic park built around a large lagoon with crystal clear waters, perfect for snorkeling. It’s set in a beautiful landscape of forests and cenotes (Mexican sinkholes). Yal-Ku is Cheaper than Xel-ha and so beautiful too.
