Distance to Akumal Beach from Gran Bahia Tulum

How long does it take to get there? Do you take a taxi or a bus? How much would it cost and is it easy to get a taxi or bus back to the resort?

You can catch a taxi or collectivo from the Hacienda. Charge for collectivo is $20 pesos each way and most cabs will match. The collectivo will drop you off near the overpass which is just a short walk to the beach. Getting back is just as easy, just walk back to the highway and cross over the overpass and a collectivo will stop. If you want a cab, there are plenty just off of the beach.

A cab is generally going to cost $10-12US$ each way, so if there are only two people and you are concerned about the cost, you'll want to go with the colectivo. It's a bit of a walk, dusty & hot, but at the end of it you'll have the beach. We always take a taxi for the three of us, it's not that much more and we cut out the walk each way.
