The Akumals, Quintana Roo, Mexico is one of most fascinating places in the Yucatan – culturally speaking. The “mega-highway” of Mexico 307 divides the small tourist resort community of Akumal with the small Mexican city of Akumal Centro.
The resort community of Akumal offers Eco-reserve, eco-tourism, white beaches, fancy, all-inclusive resorts, beach houses, English speakers, more expats than you can count, a bustling local economy, a bustling foreign economy, yoga, fried street food, and expensive wifi.
Just cross Mexico Highway 307 and you get the small Mexican city of Akumal Centro with its pesos wifi,
Spanish speakers, gringo food, authentic food, nightly street bazaars, booming local music, shared smiles, shared stares, …
It is a world of dichotomy, separated by a highway. Together, you get everything. Each would most likely die without the other. The Akumals.
