Secrets Akumal Weddings

Adults-only luxury in the “place of the turtle aka Akumal”

Secrets Akumal is a new, AAA Four Diamond award-winning adults only resort. Set on the beautiful Akumal Bay in the Riviera Maya, the all-inclusive resort is convenient located halfway between Playa del Carmen and Tulum; 30 minutes drive to either. Secrets Akumal is an hour and a half transfer from Cancun airport.

The resort has 434 elegant suites and is built around a maze of pools, not to mention access to the incredible Akumal Bay Beach of course! “Akumal” means “Place of the Turtle” in Maya, and Akumal Bay is known for its incredible snorkeling. Step out of the resort and into the water and swim with huge green turtles that come to munch on the seagrass.

One of the most unique features of Secrets Akumal is it’s location. Though the beach is public, access is now controlled and has an entry fee to protect the turtles. That means there are fewer visitors on the beach, and even fewer who make it all the way down the bay to Secrets. As a guest of the resort, you have the advantage of being able to enjoy the bay and easily walk out and explore. Akumal Bay feels like a charming village with cute shops, restaurants, and bars. We highly recommend Turtle Bay Icecream and the Buena Vida for some Dia de Los Muertos style! Akumal is a tiny dot in comparison to even Tulum and it feels cozy. Other activities include swimming in the beautiful cenotes close by.
