We were a group of 6 with varying degrees of experience with horses. Cebil(sp?) cares so much about what she is doing and providing for the horses you can feel that this not just some commercial venture. We talked openly about how she has access...More

Colectivos from Akumal to Maroma Beach (2 Replies)
We will be going to Mexico for our 1st time next week, and have learned a lot from the forum on tripadvisor. We are staying in Akumal, and want to go to Rancho Baaxal (who describe their location as next to Maroma Beach and in the Riviera Maya). I believe that it is about a 40 minute drive North of Akumal. Can we take a Colectivo all the way there? Or do we need to take a combination of taxi and Colectivo? Thanks

Response fromtie_dye_guy|
Colectivos north or south of Playa run independently , so I am sure you will have to get off at the stop in Playa and transfer to a north bound one.

Hello! We will be staying at Live Aqua from July 8-12, and would really like to go riding at Rancho Baaxal. I know they don't offer transportation and are a distance away - what would you recommend for transportation options (estimated $$ would be great, too!) thanks!
