So we have made most of our plans. We plan on staying 11 days total in Mexico. We are staying in Akumal (Half Moon Bay) for first four days. Then we will drive down to Tulum and stay at CoCo Tulum for rest of time. We do plan on having a rental car so we can schedule our own adventures and tours. We plan on renting a bike (or driving) to local bars and restaurants along beach each day. We want to swim in cenotes, snorkel, see ruins, maybe do a monkey preserve, etc. BUT WE STILL HAVE QUESTIONS:
1.) What things should we do in AKUMAL each day? What is close that we should see in that area? What is worth a day trip? What is around town? Must eat places? Any tips for Akumal?
2.) What things besides Coba, cenotes, and Sian Kaan tour should we definitely do while in Tulum? What is worth day trip? What is right on beach we should see? How about must eat/drink places?
3.) What are some travel tips for mexico in general --- never been but travel a lot so we know the basics about money safety, etc. -- what other tips from people who have travelled the area a lot that we should know?!
4.) What are some MUST PACK items to bring. I heard mosquito spray is good?! Sunscreen of course?
