visiting Akumal from the Catalonia Yucatan

How do I get to Akumal to snorkel with turtles. Can I get a collectivo? How far is it? How much would a taxi cost?

You would need to walk up to the entrance when you go out turn left walk past the Pemex gas station & continue past the shops. Walk until you get to where you can cross the road & under the highway overpass to other side. Stand on the corner there & wait for a collectivo. Cost about $2us perperson. When you get in just say Akumal. Driver will stop & you pay when you get out.. you get dropped off right @ the crossover walkway. USE it vs trying to walk across the road. You then walk along the sidewalk to the arch. Go thrum it & a few steps more turn right to Akumal beach & Lol Hol. We rent bear h chairs & hang out. Lose to there. Best area to snorkel is straight from Lol Hol. We sometimes will take a taxi back to P.A. if we are tired. We negotiate the rate best has been $12 us to take us back. I think if you take the taxi from the cat you will be around$17/18 us. They will not negotiatethere though.
