using the colectivo fro Grand Bahia Akumal

Hi

You pick them up on the highway outside the hotel. Where your dropped off is where your picked up, they run from early morning to late at night cost $3 approx . Sorry can't give exact timings. Mexican time lol

Use pesos and save 30% in the exchange rate. Recent reports mention 35 pesos

You get the colectivo in Playa del Carmen at Calle 2 Norte between Av. 15 and 20. A five minute walk from 5th Av.

Try the Interactive map of Playa at www.intheroo.com

Here is another good description of colectivos

They run every 5-10 minutes

Sorry this may seem a silly question but so they have numbers on so certain numbers run certain routes ? Or is it just a case of they all go the same way up or down the highway ?

Did you read the link I provided?

One set travels between Playa and Tulum

One set between Playa and Cancun

There are two syndicates of taxis / colectivos in this area

The Tulum taxi/Colectivos have red signs

The Playa has blue signs

Both travel between Tulum and Playa
