Getting to the beach in Akumal

Actualizado: 9 de feb de 2021

On a daily basis, CEA gets inquiries about the beach entrance through the property. Here are some of the common questions and responses.

How do I get to the beach in Akumal?

On CEA property, there is one entrance that is used by everyone—tourists, tour groups, tour guides, visitors, locals, etc. This entry point is located beside the Dive Shop, either through or beside the old CEA building. As you enter there are bathrooms and showers which are available to everyone.

Since this is the entrance that is used by most to enter into the Main Bay you will undoubtedly be offered a snorkel tour. This was the same activity that was taking place through the pathway but has now been relocated to the center of the property. Please note, that despite what you may hear, the guides are not employed by CEA or affiliated with us. CEA does not have guides nor do we conduct or sell snorkel tours.

Is there another way to get to the beach?

There is a “window to the sea” (a federally recognized public access) to the beach in Akumal to the south, where you can enter and walk to the main part of the bay. In fact, some tour groups are now using this access point and walking with their tour groups from the south end of Akumal to the swimming area in the bay.

Patrons of hotels or restaurants in the area can access the beach on the hotel/restaurant’s private property.

Is there a fee to enter?

No, there is no fee to enter.

How come there is no one at the Center giving out information about CEA and its programs?

All the CEA program offices were moved to Plaza Ukana, more adequate for work and concentration. In the future, there will be ample information provided at the Center but in the meantime, we invite you to the main office of CEA at Plaza Ukana. We are located just behind the arch, across from the basketball court.

Please feel free to contact us at if you have other questions that are not covered here.
