My wife and I visited Akumal beach on April 27th, a Monday. Pros: - The beach was beautiful. - Not as many tourist as other reviews mentioned, could be because it was a Monday.

Beat the crowds of tour groups by going early... see tons of turtles and rays here! Although they try to tell you that you must go out with a group, this is not true... go out on your own, with a colourful shirt or vest on and enjoy!!!
we went to the main/public beach in akumal, honestly we ran away immediately, not only it was packed as hell, there was a lot of people asking for money etc. It is a bear beach with no umbrellas and no chairs, the ocean is full of sea weeds, it was actually dirty. Nothing to see or do there.
We went snorkelling with our own equipment and saw at least 6 turtles! The beach itself is beautiful really enjoyed snorkelling and watching huge turtles!!
