A Quick Solution for One Way Travel 

Akumal has become Riviera Maya's most sought-after destination thanks to its family-friendly environment and beachfront vacation rentals. Far from the hustle and bustle of its neighboring towns and cities like Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum, the preferred mode of transportation in this one-road town is walking, bicycle, or golf cart. Travelers looking to explore Riviera Maya from their vacation rental in Akumal normally choose private shuttles, allowing larger groups to move around in one vehicle without worrying about figuring out directions. The more adventurous often rent a car which incurs additional expenses and international driving skills. 

Akumal Taxi Station

Small groups of travelers of 3 or less find hopping on a cab a great way to move around Riviera Maya. Especially if you're staying anywhere from Akumal Bay to Yal-Ku Lagoon. The taxi station in Akumal proper is located right next to the arch at the entrance downtown. There are normally one or 2 taxis stationed here at a time, should you not find one give them a few minutes for the next one to show up. 

Taxis in Akumal's Residential Bays
