During the spring months, Akumal becomes home to thousands of sea turtles as they venture onto the area’s beaches where they were born in order to lay their eggs. There are two types of sea turtles that you’ll have the chance of seeing, the Green sea turtle and the Loggerhead sea turtle. If visiting during this time of the year, you’ll find yourself accompanied by a sea turtle specialist on their evening patrols where you’ll help them both monitor new nests that have appeared in the sand and check for hatchlings along the beach.

Deep Sea Fishing

If you love a good fishing trip and can’t imagine a vacation without one, you’re in luck. Here in Akumal, you’ll find a selection of fishing trips to partake in, some lasting half a day while others pride themselves on full day excursions. On each of these fishing excursions, you’ll find yourself on a private charted boat with a fishing captain and crew. This activity is great for all ages and offers both fishing and opportunities to view the shoreline from a different perspective, so make sure to bring your camera along.

Golf

What can be better than a great game of golf in the Caribbean? If you agree, then you’ll want to make sure to set aside a few hours for this beloved sport. Here you’ll find a few different golf clubs to choose from, each offering different views and different levels of play. Many also offer equipment rentals, meaning that you won’t have to go through the hassle of checking in your golf equipment on the plane to and from.

Spas

With so much going on, you might feel the need to just take a break from it all and submerse yourself in a world of luxury. With several different high class spas to choose from, you’ll find that very easy to do. Treatments here range from massages to facial treatments to yoga sessions.

With stretches of beautiful white sand beaches dotted with swaying palm trees, it’s hard not to fall in love with the idea of relaxing on a blanket or towel while enjoying a lunch of fresh local fruit. This is especially true after a morning of snorkeling in the ocean beyond the bouncing waves.

Though Akumal is a great place to visit all year long, there are some months that are better suited weather wise to your wants than others, so make sure to keep that in mind during your planning process. Another thing to consider is when the area is in season. High season here is generally thought to include the winter months and all major holidays.

The Most Exotic Wedding Locations

Your big day is meant to be one of the most memorable of your lives. You’re committing your lives to each other and you want to ensure that you’re in the most memorable location with all of your favourite people there to share it with you.

Of course, you have plenty of options when it comes to the location. It’s tradition in the United Kingdom that the bride gets married in the city, town or village she comes from but many would prefer a more exotic location. You can never trust the good old British weather to provide a sunny day for your wedding, so jetting off to a sun-kissed location instead seems like a much more attractive – yet expensive – option.

However, if money isn’t too big an issue for your wedding day, take a look at five of the most exotic wedding locations in the world to make it even more memorable:

Dominican Republic

Situated in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic is often overlooked for the more well-known islands such as Barbados or Jamaica, but with budget-friendly prices, stunning beaches and plenty of local traditions it’s a highly popular holiday location and – as with most Caribbean islands – it’s like paradise.

 Mauritius

The stunning tropical island of Mauritius is becoming one of the most popular locations to exchange vows. The white sandy beaches and gorgeous weather all year around make for the most amazing setting to get married. It’s also an amazing place to experience for all of your guests, especially with plenty of 5* holidays to Mauritius with Club Med providing hotels and other advice to make the most of your time in heaven!

Hawaii

When you think of the term “exotic country” you almost instantly think of Hawaii. With stunning beaches, palm trees, beautiful weather and amazing scenery, you’d do well to find anyone who could argue against Hawaii being a tropical paradise. With hotels overlooking the beaches and sea, amazing local food and almost guaranteed beautiful weather it makes for the perfect exotic wedding location with the breeze flowing in off the sea through your hair on the alter.

Mexico

Exotic resorts, amazing local food and plenty to see and do no matter what your idea of time away consists of, Mexico provides the ideal wedding venues no matter what your theme may be. With a typically Mexican laid back approach to life, and a natural want to party, the Mexicans are sure to help your wedding day become the most memorable of your life for all the right reasons – and the weather and beaches aren’t bad either!

Bahamas

The Atlantis resort in the Bahamas is famous throughout the world for being one of the most amazing locations on the planet. For that very reason it makes the list of top five wedding locations. With weather, beaches, resorts and more to die for, the Bahamas is almost made for exotic weddings.
