Under the Waters of Mexico - by Pablo Bush Romero

Historically rich, ineffably beautiful, yet at times mortally dangerous, the mere mention of the Caribbean evokes images of romance and adventure.

And it is to these waters that countless soldiers of fortune and modern-day pirates have come, seeking the fabled riches beneath the restless waves—the remains of sunken ships which offer up treasures not only of gold, silver and jewels, but centuries-old artifacts, whose value is inestimable to the historian and archeologist.

250 pages with black and white photos.

Cross of the Matancero

For Akumal’s 50th Anniversary, we have produced 150 replicas of one of the crosses recovered from the shipwreck off the point of Akumal.

“El Matancero” was a ship from Spain, bound for Veracruz. On Feb.22, 1742 it came to rest under the Waters of Punta Matancero, on the Southern tip of Akumal.

Akumal's 50th Anniversary limited edition Matancero cross was replicated by local artist , Richard Mazzola from an original artifact recovered from the "El Matancero" shipwreck.

This beautiful cross is a numbered limited edition collector’s piece and will be available for sale through the website: www.hotelakumalcaribe.com and at Super Chomak.


Also many items are available at the Super Chomak at the entrance of Akumal — T-shirts, caps, glasses...
 Profits from all these items go to the Pablo Bush Romero foundation.
