Favorite Local Dishes
A trip to Akumal is complete with savoring the many tacos on offer. Be it the delicate flavors of fish tacos or the rich and sumptuous cochinita pibil, a slow-roasted pork marinated in citrus and annatto seeds, every bite explores Yucatecan authenticity.
Akumal is a haven for seafood lovers. Revel in fresh ceviche, where citrus-cured seafood dances with tomatoes, onions, and cilantro, or relish a plate of perfectly grilled fish seasoned with local herbs.
The gastronomic journey continues beyond seafood. Indulge in tamales, steamed corn dough parcels filled with meat or cheese; salutes, slopes, and panuchos, tortillas stuffed with beans and topped with turkey or chicken; Sopa de lima, a tangy lime soup; and for the sweet-toothed, don’t miss out on the rich and ancient Mayan chocolate.
