Taxis

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.
