If you need a taxi to get somewhere from your hotel or condo, you can either ask your hotel´s receptionist, who can call a taxi, or you can walk out to the main entrance to the taxi stop at the arches. It is possible to flag one down as you are walking down the main road in Akumal, but taxis going by often have passengers already in them (you can also flag one down and ask the driver to send another car to pick you up).

Rental cars

If you are planning on having an active vacation, consider renting a car at the Cancun airport so you can have the rental for your entire stay. This saves you, of course, the shuttle transportation to and from the airport, which can run about $145 USD roundtrip.

If you plan on taking it easy while in Akumal, you might consider renting a car in Akumal for just a day or two to make your longer day trips (Coba, Muyil, Tulum, or cenotes if you are planning on seeing several) a little easier.


Taxi in Akumal, Bahia Principe Coba, Tulum and airport transfers from Cancun

After a bad experience with a taxi driver near Akumal in June 2015 but fortunately found a really reliable and pleasant taxi driver  who looked after the  family for the rest of the holiday.

Taxi services for Days out, excursions and visits to local attractions, Coba ruins, Chichen Itza, Akumal, Cancun airport, Tulum.

He was a great guy, his name was Saul Pacheco and he can be contacted on 0052 984 183 4360 or on Whats App using the same number.

He did not overcharge and a day out for 4 adults including entry to Coba ruins cost less than 1 adult fare on a Thomson excursion.

Hopefully someone will find his details useful
