Soliman Bay and Tankah are coastal areas located between Akumal and Tulum. Soliman Bay with its white sandy beach remains mostly undeveloped with only a few private beach houses nestled among the coconut palms. The bay is excellent for snorkeling and a small private dive shop at Palapas Caribe offers offers ocean diving and private scuba classes. Oscar Y Lalo's beach side restaurant in Soliman offers fresh seafood, cold cervezas and a lush coconut grove big enough for your hammock and many more. A short trail on the far side of the cocos leads to a secluded lagoon surrounded by mangrove.
Tankah Bay is the next bay south from Soliman Bay and is the home of the "Casa Cenote" restaurant, a local favorite. Great food is served under a big palapa roof that's right on the beach. Have some ceviche, tacos or perhaps a cheeseburger in paradise. In front of the restaurant, Tankah Bay offers snorkeling for the energetic and cocktail cruises in the sailboat moored in front (ask at the restaurant). In back is the Manatee cenote, another good snorkeling spot that winds its way up through the mangrove.
The pueblo of Tulum and the Mayan Ruins are 10 minutes away to the south with Akumal roughly 15 minutes to the north. Both Tulum and the Akumal area have telephones, money exchange, shopping and other restaurants. Tulum also has a major bus terminal.
So what do you do down there?.
Besides lounging in a hammock you can walk the beach, sunbathe, bird watch, there's diving, gazing at the stars, or just do nothing at all! The location is also convenient to numerous day trip adventures along the coast like the cenotes of Tulum and Actun Chen cave. People like Tankah and Soliman Bay because it's a step back in time, away from mainstream tourism and back into the roots of the tropical experience. So what would you like to do? - Contact Us.
