We went on the Akumal Art Tour this last week with a small group of people and it was fantastic! The murals are amazing; we could not believe the quality and caliber of artists and artwork. Huge diversity of artworks yet it all goes together and brings a new flair to Akumal and a new experience to visitors and residents alike! Do NOT miss out on this opportunity when you are here to come hear all about the artists, the ideas behind their work, and their backgrounds and to get a chance to really tour the 'real' part of Akumal. Joan is an awesome guide and you will not be sorry you took these few hours to go have this unique experience and support the arts in this way!
I highly recommend you do the tour of the Akumal Art Walk. Joan, our guide, was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience very meaningful. She gave us so much insight into the artist and murals. There are so many to see and you would miss some of the best ones without the tour. Worth the two hour walk. Don’t miss it.
Joan is the consummate tour guide of the Pueblo’s street artworks. She met all of the artists and she knows their history as well as their genre! She is a animated and makes the paIntings come alive! One of the best things we did in Akumal! Don’t miss this tour when you’re in town!
