Yucatan DVD presents Akumal Mexico, one of the best kept secrets in the Riviera Maya.
South of Cancun, travel 65 miles from Cancun's crowded beaches and you will find the unspoiled shores of Akumal Mexico on the Riviera Maya.
"Akumal - Paradise in Mexico" is a DVD video packed with information and memorable visuals. The travel video begins with a short summary of the founding of Akumal and its relevance to the rest of the Riviera Maya. It continues with enticing video of underwater water sports, from snorkeling to diving in and around Akumal's bays, along its breathtaking reefs, and cave diving in the area's unique "cenotes", cold-water sink holes which are excellent for a dip or a snorkel after sunbathing under the Caribbean sun.
The travel video guides the viewer through several nearby bodies of water: Akumal Bay in central Akumal, Half Moon Bay in North Akumal, and Yal-ku Lagoon, popular in the Riviera Maya for snorkeling tours.
Away from the beach, the DVD guides the viewer through the unique geography of the Yucatan low-jungle, through the exciting Coba ruins and the famous Tulum ruins, treking by foot or bicycle, amid stunning footage of jungle cenotes sprinkled throughout the Mayan Riviera.
In Mayan, Akumal Mexico is translated "place of the turtle" and the video doesn't disappoint. See turtle nests on Akumal's beaches and watch live footage of adorable Loggerhead baby turtles sprinting from their nests, the hatchlings scurrying to Half Moon Bay.
Akumal Mexico is centrally located between the two most popular destinations of the Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, while Akumal, being more laid-back, is the perfect starting point and "home base" for a Riviera Maya vacation. A section highlights the ruins in Tulum for a day trip as well as hitting the hopping town of Playa del Carmen in the evening to take in Playa del Carmen's nightlife.
The DVD is packed with 80 minutes of footage which includes special features that contain packing tips, health and safety tips, and traveling tips to Mexico. A restaurant section visits each of Akumal's unique restaurants with enticing footage of the preparation of native and traditional food, with recommendations of scrumptuous dishes and specialty drinks. Water activities are highlighted, the best spots where to snorkel or dive, boating and fishing trips, jungle tours, where to shop for gifts, and general services.
The video has a menu guide for Akumal Mexico to find all the activities, services and businesses, and as a special feature, the DVD has an animated video map that guides the viewer driving from Cancun to Akumal, as well as a dedicated section with video driving tips for the Riviera Maya, including advice for dealing with the local gas station attendants. Such information is unique for a travel video and make this DVD invaluable for any Riviera Maya tourist.
