 Akumal Mexico and Area
Restaurant Guide

Akumal is one of the older communities on this coast where nothing but the Mayan culture is really very old.  Having grown from a little known dive destination that was quite difficult to get to, into the favored vacation destination of many that it is today, Akumal is still comfortably casual and so are the restaurants and bars found here.  Let's face it, this is Mexico and the laid back easy way of life is what attracts us all here in the first place.  We have come to appreciate that we don't have to make reservations or dress for dinner even at the best restaurants in town.  You will feel welcome and comfortable whether you have just come form the beach or spent the past hour preparing yourself for a romantic evening out.


Turtle Bay Cafe & Bakery:      located just inside the archway and to your left.  telephone  (984) 875-9138  Web site Turtle Bay Cafe    This is one of the most popular eateries in Akumal.  You will need to come early if you are going to beat the locals to the fresh baking.  Excellent breakfasts, wonderful deli style lunches and often in the high season they are open a couple of nights a week for dinner.  Free Wi-fi for guests.

Lol-Ha:                        located on the beach to the right of the archway.  telephone (984) 875-9014  Another favorite.  This is really three restaurants all wrapped up in one.  Breakfast and dinner is served in the main dining room.  There is a pizza restaurant attached to the side of this and out on the beach is a wonderful open air bar that offers lunch and snacks.  All are good.  The dining room offers a wide selection and is an excellent choice for a slightly more formal evening out.

Buena Vida:               located on Half Moon Bay (through the arch, turn left and about a half mile)  telephone (984) 875-9061   A popular watering hole on the ground floor and a good restaurant upstairs with a varied menu.   Swing in here for a cool drink and to find out what is going on in the area.

La Cueva del Pescador:   located just inside the archway and to your left.  Fresh fish and cold drinks are the order of the day.  The owner Carlos Danu is a fisherman and can organize fishing charters and snorkeling trips.  You catch it, bring it to the restaurant and they will prepare it for you.

Loncheria Akumalito:     located before the arch beside Super Chomak grocery.   A simple lunch counter with decent food at a good price.  Open for breakfast and dinner.  

La Lunita:              located past Buena Vida at the La Tortuga condos.  telephone (984) 875-9070  Romantic hideaway with delicious Mexican, Maya and seafood dishes. The Chile Poblanos are delicious.  see their web site at

Taverna Pizzeria & Risotteria:     located just inside the archway, to your left and upstairs.   The Lombardi family who has restaurants in Dallas, Houston, Austin and Laguna Beach and long time vacationers to Akumal, have opened an upscale yet with a Mexican casual flare, restaurant that specializes in northern Italy inspired dishes that concentrate on fresh, seasonal ingredients.  Of course their signature risotto is featured alongside daily specials.
