Punta Allen to Akumal- collectivos - bus?

Were going to Punta Allen. I would love to spend the day in Akumal-on our way back home before spending the night in Cancun to catch our flight back home. Do collectivos stop in Akumal? Is there a bus stop to catch a bus back to Playa or Cancun?

Where are you staying in Punta Allen? Another good stop to keep in mind is Rancho Sol Caribe, about 15 minutes north of Punta Allen. Great rooms, great food and wonderful beach.

Will you have a car? How are you getting back and forth from Cancun in terms of flying in?

If you want to go to Akumal, you can catch a collectivo from Tulum - just ask for Akumal Playa. Not sure about a bus stop.

We are staying at the Serenidad Shardon in Punta Allen.

While in Mexico we usually travel via bus or collectivo.

Thanks for the help!

Looking forward to spending the day at Akumal- have heard wonderful things on the beautiful beach!

Serenidad Sharon is a great place. We checked it out while we were there the last time. We actually met the owner too while we were staying at Sol Caribe (they are friends with Michael.)

Have fun!

A bus stop is not really needed--you can ride a Mayab second class bus from Tulum and they will drop of pickup anywhere along the route.

I met a woman last year in Punta Allen who said she had a hotel. This woman said she had been on a boat that caught on fire off the coast of PR many years ago. She swam to shore, loved the area, and stayed.

Could this be Sharon, as the name rings a bell?

I tried to find a website with negative results.

The easiest way to catch a Mayab is at the ADO bus terminal in the center of Tulum--all stop there.
