Las Redes: This 40 to 60 feet reef site was named by the original explorers of the Akumal reef for the giant commercial fishing net that was found blanketing it. Now, the net has been removed, but the marine life still abounds. Las Redes is known for the abundant marine life, schooling fish, barracudas, stingrays, lobsters and when you’re lucky, turtles.
MOTORCYCLE REEF: At the shallow end of this 50 to 60 feet dive site, lying in the sand, is a 20-year old, coral overgrown motorcycle where you can always find schools of feeding fish, arrow crabs, and southern stingrays. This reef is laced with a large variety of soft corals, which makes it a good spot to see feeding turtles.
