Akumal- swimming with turtles

We were staying at Hacienda Tres Rios, which is midway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. About 20 minutes south of Playa is Akumal, Mexico. (Click for an aerial view)

We rented a car and drove down there for the day. Akumal is beautiful. It has clean beaches and clear water, but best of all...there are big turtles resting in the grassy underwater-world.

We snorkeled around the reef and saw lots of fish and sea urchins.

As we headed back to land we saw two huge turtles and got to follow them around for a while.

Jesse calls this "Nemo's Home"

It was a lovely day away from the resort!
