About the neighbourhood
Akumal is a beautiful quite town Located in the heart of the Riviera Maya.

Akumal has long been a secret getaway, discovered only by those who dared to travel down the coastline in search of adventure. Akumal is a small community with sandy white beaches, swaying palms, sun, surf, and a feeling of paradise.

Getting around
Private transportation is the most convenient and popular option for most travellers. If you are a large group this is by far the most economical way to travel. Private means just that. You and your travel partners have a van to yourself. The trip is direct to your accommodations. Average price to Akumal is 110 USD and can take up to 7 people with luggage. Rental Car from the Cancun Airport If you have decided to rent a car for your vacation, pick up your rental car at the airport. This is a great way to go if you arrive midday, and not after a long flight. With only one highway on the coast, traveling to your destination is easy. If you are arriving late in the evening you may want to be driven.
