My first Cancun vacation and opted to DIY B&B lodging, sight-seeing and rent-a-car. Villas Picalu is situated in a gated community of western expats and retirees. The marina is literally a stone throw away, quite convenient for charter fishing and scuba diving. I enjoyed daily walks around the marina "trails" to check out the dolphins, sea lions and manatees at Dolphin Discovery ponds. Plenty of decent restaurants with affordable menus and relaxing atmosphere (Playa del Carmen would be like a zoo in contrast). During out week-long stay, we visited Coba, Tulum, Akumal beach and couple nearby cenotes. Alberto was kind enough to arrange Chichen Itza full-day trip with tour company, for only USD$45.
You will definitely need a car to get around. The gas station next to the security checkpoint has affordable soft drinks and snacks.
