The first photo shows the foot bridge about a 10 minute walk outside of Akumal Beach [Playa]. If you stay in one of the Akumal Condos, you would probably call the area with most of the stores and restaurants "downtown Akumal". Note that if you take the Collectivo mini vans, that area of Akumal is called "Akumal Playa". There is another set of stores, to the right in the photo, that is called "Akumal Peublo" (Akumal town). The bright yellow stop is for the Collectivos. The stop beyond that with the thatched roof is where the tour buses (coaches) stop.

The first picture in the row above is one of the "big" supermarkets in the beach town. The next photo is the office of Akumal Travel Services. That is where we booked the tours to Chichen Itza, Coba, and Tulum [Telum]. There is an ecological center in Akumal, and there are a couple of ecological parks and/or tours you can to on in the area.

Akumal was a great place to have a quiet and relaxing vacation. There were quite a few familes with small children in this area. If we didn't want to visit the other tourist sites, everything that we needed was within a 20 min walk (you can rent bikes, I think). So I am exposing my middle-aged-ness once again by saying I'm so very glad we didn't stay in Cancun or Playa del Carmen.
