Location Information: The Akumal Beach webcam view takes you right to Mexico's fabulous Caribbean coast, where the white sand beaches and clear blue turquoise seas could easily be on Jamaica or Barbados. Popular with tourists form the US and Europe alike, the Akumal coastline boasts some of Mexico's most spectacular scenery, while being closely located to some of the famous Inca monuments and landmarks that draw large visitor numbers to this region.

 

Akumal is a small beach-front tourist resort community 100 km (62 miles) south of Canc˙n, between the towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum. It is the municipal seat of Tulum municipality in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. The 2005 census showed a population of 1,198 inhabitants.

Akumal means "place of the turtles" in the Mayan language. The town was officially founded in 1958 as a community for scuba divers by Pablo Bush Romero--a Mexican businessman, diver, writer, historian, and archaeologist. Pablo Bush's family (the Bush/Wolfe family) still owns a large portion of Akumal, including the largest resort/hotel Hotel Club Akumal Caribe. Local bartender and DJ Ryan Wolfe is a direct descendant.

The fine white sandy beaches at Akumal Bay and Half Moon Bay are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. Sea turtles can be found in Akumal laying eggs on the beaches at night throughout the nesting season (end of April to October) or swimming in the main bay during the day. Hatching season runs from June to November, coinciding with hurricane season. This translates to big losses in the turtle population when major storms hit the area. However, Green Turtle populations seem to be steady.
