Yal-ku. The hidden gem at Riviera Maya

Destinations 17/05/2021
As if it were a dream, in the fishing town of Akumal, one of the most beautiful and well-kept secrets of Riviera Maya is hidden; yal ku lagoon.

Perhaps it is the deep blue water or maybe the fact that in yal ku lagoon mexico, the sweet and salty waters join to offer an excellent akumal beach snorkelling experience. Either way, yal ku lagoon is a must on your next adventure to Cancun.

Hit the town and brace yourself because you are about to experience one of the most enchanting landscapes in Riviera Maya.

Before taking a splash!

As soon as you arrive at the so-called hidden gem, you will find little stores full of authentic handcrafts. The locals of Akumal own these stores, and you can find from swimsuits to action figures of the most famous Mexican wrestlers.

The first thing you must do, if you want to protect your skin from the sun rays, is to buy a biodegradable sunscreen. To swim in the lagoon, you need to be free of toxic products such as cosmetics, creams, and makeup. The locals have set this rule to protect the native ecosystems, but do not worry, you will easily find this type of sunscreen at any of the stores. It is also highly recommended to take a shower before swimming.

Ready, set, GO!

At your arrival, you will find direct access coming from Akumal, whose facilities have free parking, showers, dressing rooms, and many other amenities. You will be able to rent Akumal snorkelling too.

Inside the lagoon, you will find rock formations, caves, and many colorful fish!

If you are lucky enough, you will see some turtles, rays, and many other sea creatures. Therefore, it is essential to avoid taking away any animals or vegetation living in the area.

Every time you choose to visit an eco-friendly destination such as Yal ku, you witness the mind-blowing places that mother nature offers us. And the best part is that you are supporting the locals to keep a sustainable lifestyle!

At Park Royal Hotels & Resorts, we advise you not to litter the lagoon and follow the recommendations stated above.
