My name is Victor Gamboa !

My name is Victor Gamboa and, I was born here in Akumal, I am one of the natives of Akumal, since when this place was only jungle.
I started snorkeling since when I was I little kid, I remember that when I got off elementary school I would grab my snorkel equipment and just go swimming for hours.

Bonne excursion en petit groupe ! Le lieu est très touristique, il y a beaucoup de groupes mais Orlando était très sympa et nous avons passé un bon moment

Super activité, guide très sympa, à l’écoute. Vu 3 tortues et 2 raies malgré une météo moyenne (beaucoup de vent mer trouble) Je recommande 👍🏼👍🏼

Great excursion to see the turtles! Our guide was friendly and made sure we knew what to expect. The conditions weren’t great, but we still got to see turtles, rays, and an old Spanish cannon. I believe the price is similar to what you’ll pay to the guides at the entrance, but having it already paid for and organized here on AirB&B was valuable. A suggestion if you’re coming from Playa Del Carmen: Definitely get the colectivo from Avenida 45 Norte and Calle 1 Sur toward Tulum. It’ll cost around 40 pesos per person instead of a taxi for 600. It’s then just a short walk from the highway.

Really amazing experience, we saw 5 turtles, 3 sting rays, a puffer fish and lots of other fish. Our guide was great and the location was beautiful. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

nosotros tomamos el tour con Angel. Su personalidad nos hizo sentir extremadamente cómodos en todo momento. muy amable y amistoso. sabia mucho de la vida marina. estuvo constantemente buscando cosas que pudiéramos ver bajo el agua. vimos muchísimas tortugas y como extra algunas mantarayas. Lo recomiendo definitivamente

This is awesome. You have to try it. Victor was very flexible with the start time since we were running late. We saw some massive sting rays, turtles and fishes. If you walk down 500m along the beach you’ll be treated to beautiful calm water that you can chill by. The akumal bay is very peaceful and quiet. FYI bring cash if driving, parking is 50 pesos and most vendors only take cash
