Did You Know?

We are starting a new section, this is for new, old and locals – it has been mentioned many times that people want to know about new places to go, whether it is an all-inclusive with a new day spa, a new restaurant, or a new tour. Please be sure to submit your great finds.

Al Cielo

Located on Xpu-Ha's secluded beach, this restaurant is part of a small boutique resort offering 4 rooms. The dining experience is elegant and the food is delightful. How can you go wrong in such a lovely setting? With colorful streamers attached to palapas on the beach, the setting is as pleasing to the eyes as the food is to your palate.

Cenotes West of Tulum

Perhaps this is your third or fourth trip to the Riviera Maya and you want to escape the turquoise waves crashing outside your hotel room and explore the hidden treasures that lie further inland. Follow author, Mari Pintkowski, as you meander down the Coba Road and investigate a couple of new cenotes that have recently opened.

Try A Little Español - While you're in Mexico, it might be fun to try a little Spanish. The people you speak with will be really appreciative of your effort and it might even enhance your Mexican experience!

Travel Concepts
Super Saver September Celebration in Akumal

Our supporters and advertisers tell us that September on the Riviera Maya is slow. To counter this fact, many plan to offer special pricing and other inducements for you to consider visiting in September. Better yet, they're going to advertise these special savings on this page. So now you can create your own Super Saver September Get-Away.

Never to old to be dazzled

It has been said that visitors leave their brains at the border. Those are the extreme cases when childishness takes over from common sense. Examples would be when tourists rent an open air jeep and don't bother to strap their seat belts. Or we have all seen those crazy Americans who drink too much tequila and try to dance or, worse, speak Spanish. Oh, and there are the radically extreme cases where someone has parasailed right into the side of a resort on Cancun's beach. But I am not talking about the extreme cases.

Community News


For many years now education has been of growing importance to the visitors, locals and businesses of Akumal. Sac-Be.com recognizes the hard work and contributions by each month updating people on what is going on with educational groups and organizations.

Hekab be Biblioteca says goodbye to a friend

Carlos, my friend and silly guy beloved by Akumal children, has decided to move on after 8 years of dedicated service to the library. I'll miss him, and I know that many of you will miss him as well. Carlos was not just an employee, but part of the heart and soul of the library community.

CEA Gala a Smash

This year CEA was able to raise just over $10,000 USD from its Silent Auction, Gala Dinner and Online Auction, held in February. These funds are dedicated to implementing its Akumal Bay Management Program, on employing a strategy to improve water quality in the Akumal region, and on beginning this year’s turtle nesting season with everything in place to make sure as many hatchlings as possible safely make their way to the sea, among other goals for 2008.

An Akumal Dog Adoption Story

This is a mistake that we seem to make over and over again. Not that the outcome is bad, but who are we trying to fool by saying we will never do certain things; such as, never get another puppy – or never bring another dog back from Mexico.

Puerto Aventuras

The First Annual Puerto Aventuras Community Foundation Gala Dinner to benefit the Puerto Aventuras Childcare Center was a huge success! More than 80 residents and visitors came together at the Omni Hotel on Sunday, March 10, to support this most important project that is being completed in the pueblo.
