Lovely little seafood place right in Akumal, just next to Turtle Bay Bakery and Cafe. Excellent fresh seafood and a family-run atmosphere. I enjoyed the special of the day (whitefish lightly breaded). Recommended if you're in Akumal!

This is a seafood place, if you didn't catch it from the name. However, it is just good, not great. Prices are reasonable, and the service good, though.

Good price and location, right next to the public the beach. They were very busy, but our waiter was always checking on us.

The place (the near Akumal beach included) is a real hotspot for tourists - so unfortuantely it lost it's natural beauty and had turned into a kind of money making area. I guess some years before is has been a really nice place - I...More

Yes. They have lots of room and a festive atmosphere but also family friendly. I do not think you need reservations.

LA Cueva only serves fish. Waiters were acting on their own. Simply walk down to the beach or to one of the dive shops. You'll have many options to choose from. None are fancy, only open pongas, like big rowboats. Get... More
