With Casa Xixim nestled right on the ocean and within such a wild and raw landscape, it became clear that we wanted to find ways to help keep this ecosystem beautiful and healthy. A modest but helpful portion of your rental fee is donated to Centro Ecologico Akumal which manages programs for Sea Turtles, Coastal Ecosystems, Water Quality, Sustainable Development, and Environmental Education.
The Sea Turtle Visitor Program is a great activity for all ages. They provide a brief background on the endangered sea turtles, and when hatchlings are active they allow visitors to release the lil’ babes into the ocean on clear nights when the moon is shining bright. And the CEA Facebook page is a great place to get sea turtle nesting and hatchling updates.
