Advise On Transportation To Akumal

I know this comes up often but we are a large group. Some staying at Sandos Playacar and some right in Playa. What would be the easiest most economical way to get to Akumal and back to resorts?

Places like USA Transfers could pick you up with a large van (how many are you) for between 100-$150 round trip

Taxis will hold 4 and cost 300-400 pesos each way (300 pesos frm PDC)

Colectivos will cost 40 pesos each way pp from Playa but with large groups, you will likely need to take a few

6 taxis will be 150-200 pesos each person round trip

You can ask USA Transfers (10 max per van) or others

ADO does not stop at Akumal, closest is Tulum, then a 10 minute taxi back

Mayab buses does but it runs on its own schedule and you may not get a return ride

Do the colectivos charge per person? I would assume so but how about children?
