Akumal Natura Rescue

Meet our commitment with nature, a wildlife preservation program with more then 80 animals were we help to rehabilitate, reproduce and reinsert local animals in collaboration with the local authorities

Akumal Natura’s mission

Our Animal Rescue Center collaborates with the local authorities to provide shelter for displaced native animals. Most animals were confiscated from illegal trade, abandoned by their previous owners once deemed unfit as pets. They are donated to us to provide them food, shelter, and healthcare with the help of our biologist’s collaborators.

Animals brought to our unit will be able to live in their natural environment, some in large enclosures and others in semi-captivity, depending on their behavior and ability to live in peace with the other animals in the center.

We identify the eligible animals and transfer them to a rehabilitation and reintroduction site, with the ultimate goal of being released into the wild.

Help our volunteers! Enjoy getting your hands dirty and help the animals. There is always plenty to do at our rescue. Sign Up today and collaborate in our rescue mission.

Cenote Tumben-Ha / Flora and Fauna

Want to visit the wildlife rescue center? We organize half-day visits to meet the animals and our ecological plan to collaborate with wildlife protection and contribute to our mission.

The experience lasts an approximate time of 4 hours and departs from Akumal Natura Glamping. We house more than 80 wild animals of 23 different species. During the tour, you can have a close encounter with some of them under the careful supervision of our guides, learn about pollination and the harmless stingless Melipona bee and taste its powerful and nutrient-rich honey.

Every animal brought to our Environmental Unit is placed in a rehabilitation, reproduction, and reinsertion program. The objective is to provide freedom to the wildlife with an excellent health condition back into their natural habitat.

We visit the Cenote Tumben-ha, a true oasis in the middle of the Mayan jungle during the tour. Cenotes were a symbol of life for Mayans; they are also home to turtles and iguanas, frogs, and butterflies.

At the end of the tour, immerse yourself in the clear water cenote, believed to have healing properties.

Hoy apareció este al lado de el refugio en Akumal Natura Rescue. No pareció alterarle mi presencia y se dejó hacer la foto en plan diva.
Es una alegría saber que ahora nos acompañará su canto en los Cenotes .

Empiezan a ver si ya los primeros pájaros “Toh” o “Mot mot” (pon la similitud al sonido que hace al cantar)
O también “momoto de cejas azules”
Espectacular y  de tierras bajas tropicales, principalmente en áreas secas. Prefiere el bosque seco y sus bordes. Es uno de los momotos más ilustres, especialmente en primavera cuando percha en cables y ramas expuestas al lado de los caminos. Plumaje distintivo, tiene cejas turquesa, alas azul turquesa y cola con raquetas grandes. Forma colonias de anidación en cenotes en algunos sitios arqueológicos Mayas de la península de Yucatán. Sus nidos son huecos excavados en las laderas, como los de los martines pescadores.

Today this one appeared next to the shelter at Akumal Natura Rescue.  My presence didn't seem to bother him and he allowed himself to take the photo like a diva.

The first “Toh” or “Mot mot” birds are beginning to be seen (they are called that way because of the similarity to the sound they make when singing).
 Or also “blue-browed motmot”
 Spectacular and tropical lowland, found mainly in dry areas.  It prefers the dry forest and its edges.  It is one of the most illustrious motmots, especially in spring when it perches on wires and exposed branches along the side of the roads.  Distinctive plumage, has turquoise eyebrows, turquoise blue wings, and large racketed tail.  It forms nesting colonies in cenotes at some Mayan archaeological sites in the Yucatan peninsula.  Their nests are holes dug into the slopes, like those of kingfishers.

 It is a joy to know that now his singing will accompany us in the Cenotes.  visit it and see it with us in a great 4-hour experience with animals and Cenotes.  Book at reservations@akumalnatura.com or by WhatsApp at the number +52 984-1875189

🌀 The tranquility and silence that is experienced inside the cenotes is magical and undoubtedly influenced the ancient Mayans who considered these waters and underground forms as sacred🌀

🌀 La tranquilidad y el silencio que se experimenta al interior de los cenotes es magica y sin duda influyo en los antiguos mayas que consideraban estad aguas y formas subterraneas como sagradas. 🌀
