    Akumal (Teil 2/3)

    Samstags sind wir ganz früh aufgestanden, haben das Frühstück halb übersprungen und Schokokuchen gegessen und haben uns dann auf die Suche nach einem Colectivo Richtung Playa del Carmen gemacht. Da wir in Tulum etwas abseits wohnten, haben wir nicht so schnell ein Colectivo gefunden und haben uns stattdessen ein Taxi genommen (wir waren zu viert und somit war der Preis nicht zu teuer). Eine Dreiviertelstunde später haben wir und nur wenige andere Touristen um 8 Uhr am Strand gestanden und haben uns über klares, türkisblaues Wasser gefreut.
    Der Grund warum wir (so früh) nach Akumal gefahren sind, ist dass in der dortigen Bucht morgens Schildkröten das Seegras fressen und man somit mit ihnen schnorcheln kann! Nachdem unser erster Schnorchelgang ohne gesichtete Schildkröte blieb, hatte Kim nach einer halben Stunde mehr Glück! Erst sah er eine kleine und später noch mehrere große (ca. 60-80cm) Schildkröten! Er nahm uns andere also mit zu der Stelle und wir entdeckten noch ein paar weitere! 🐢
    Dann wollten wir erst Mal eine Pause einlegen - weil es aber immer voller am Strand wurde, entschieden wir uns schon gegen ca. 12 Uhr wieder zurück nach Tulum zu fahren. Dort gab es chinesisches Mittagessen und wir verbrachten den Nachmittag in den kleinen Läden auf der Tourimeile. 😁 Auch einen kleinen Obst- und Gemüseladen haben wir entdeckt, in dem wir uns mit Minibananen und Karotten zum Snacken ausgestattet haben (siehe Bild mit Anamaria. 😜 Aus ihrem Kraut hat sie abends noch Guacamole gezaubert).

    6.7 Akumal

    October 21, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ 🌧 30 °C

    Every one and then I stay in a hotel, just to have a good bed and some privacy.

    I did that with two fellow travellers, with which I stayed in Akumal.
    During that stay I met a American couple (~60y) who left the states to live in Mexico. They were catching fish that morning with the boat. And for dinner their fish was on the menu. Because we had such a nice talk they invited me for dinner. That was so nice. Loved it a lot.Read more

    05-30 Flamingo Villas and Akumal turtles

    May 30, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ 🌧 79 °F

    Slept then bkfst in condo ( cereal etc), then just reading around pool. Nice leisurely morning. Decided to go to Akumal Bay and Akumal Dive shop to snorkle fir turtles. Had quick lunch at Lol-Ha cafe. Checked with sunbr shop to understand where public can go watch turtles fir free. Piblis area was abit 60 meters south of dive shop, beautiful public beach. Rented life jackets which are strongly suggested. Seam out threw lots 9f sweed weed, but did get ti see 3,-5 turtles feeding on fine grass. Really liked, plus they would rise up to surface right next to you. Got more pedos and beer, and headed back to condo. Had some cocktails while everyone read. Then walked south about 2 tenths of a mile to great restaursnt, La Lunita, which is right on beach, and made great food..Read more

    May 29, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    Left Valladolid about 10am after bkfst at hotel. Drove hwy 180 to Coba ruins. Started 90 minute tour about 11:30am. Very hot and humid in Coba. Walked first part of tour with guide. Then rented bicycles yo ride about 2km out thru jungle to largest temple. Kind of nice to wind while riding bike. Finished tour out at large temple. Guide leaves you to climb temple on your own. About 140 meters tall, steep hot stair climb. Nice jungle view from up top, then climb back down, ride back thru jungle to return bikes. Left about 1:30pm - again we were drenxhed and hot. Grabbed drinks and snacks and decided to head to Akumal in air conditioned car. Arrived at condo about 4pm and checked in with mngr. Condo nice, but hot. Lots of smelling seaweed on beach all around. Unloaded and then headed back to Akumal Dive shop, grocery store and then dinner on beach at Hol-La restsurant. Everyone tired and grumpy until we finally got some drinks and food. Back to condo, sat out by pool and beach cause house was to hot. Luckily each bedroom has its own AC unit.Read more

    05-31 Villa Flamingos, Akumal

    May 31, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    Another lazy morning, hot but more wind and clouds keeping things a bit cooler. Make your own bkfst, and then reading by the pool (in the shade!). Drove into Akumal "pueblo" about 1:30pm for lunch at taqueria. Back to condo, then walked to Yal Ku lagoon to do some snorkeling in a very calm lagoon. Sara stayed at condo as she isn't that thrilled with snorkeling. Steve, Sam, and I liked it because of beautiful setting and calm waters. Saw lots of beautiful fish including huge parrot fish, and the guys spotted a barracuda. The grounds around lagoon are beautifully laid out with lovely sculptured statues. Came back to condo, read some more, then dinner at Buena Vida. Just okay meal, but our last, so kids did a short of tequila. I had "Mud Slide" slushy drink which was surprisingly good.Read more
