Where to stay??

We are planning a vacation actually our honeymoon for Nov 10th departure. Trying to decide which rresort to stay at ( Tulum, coba or Akumal) have read so much that I am just confusing myself tryng to keep them straight we are looking for plenty of beach time, good snorkeling and would like to visit the ruins. How far of a walk if the beach from Coba since I understand it is not on the beach front. Any help that anyone can offer would be fantastic!!

As far as I understand Coba is about an hours drive from the ocean. If you are wanting to stay closer to the beach Tulum would be a better bet.

We rented a car in Cancun and stayed in Tulum. Having a car was fantastic, as it enabled us to take a few day trips, including Coba. It also enabled us to get to Coba first thing in the morning before all of the tour bus' arrived- we had the entire place to ourselves for a at least an hour or two, which was amazing. It's an easy drive to Tulum. Also, there are a lot of other neat things to do in the area.

ERChris - I would post your question in the Akumal section of the forums. I understand what you are trying to say........ you want to know whether to choose the Coba/Tulum or Akumal section of the Bahia Principe Riviera Maya resort.
