FAQ

AKUMAL ("Place of The Turtle" in Mayan) was part of a sprawling coconut plantation until 1925.  A New York Times sponsored expedition along the then-unknown Yucatan coast stumbled upon this beautiful bay.  But it was another 33 years before outsiders intruded on its pristine beauty.  In 1958, the nucleus of what is now C.E.D.A.M., a renowned dive club, introduced AKUMAL to world class divers.  Soon the word was out, and the first visitors began making their way to the unknown wilderness.  At that time, the only way to AKUMAL was by boat from Cozumel.  A road was built in the early 1960's.  Since then, AKUMAL has grown in fame and size.  Although there are more visitors now, it remains uncluttered and tranquil.
