I am in the beginning stages of planning an all girls trip to Akumal for next May. Along way off but it is difficult with all of our schedules to do anything before that. There will be 8-10 of us going. I have been looking at houses to rent but am a bit lost. Which area of Akumal has the best beach? We would prefer sand to rocks! Also - where would we shop for food? We would most likely cook the whole time except for a few meals here and there in restaurants. We are all in our 30's just wanting some R & R away from work, signifigant others and kiddos. Are there any bars if we wanted to go out one night and have a few drinks? That would probably be the extent of our "going out!"
Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
