      Cancun Airport to Cozumel transportation?

      Isla Cozumel Feb 8, 2017 at 11:09 PM

      Got a free flight to Cancun, booked it and realized that I really want to be in Cozumel! Now I have a hotel booked in Cozumel (Iberostar) and need to figure out how to get there and back.
      I see a flight with r.t. for only $150, but the times are real bad and I hope to get something that fits my flights in/out of Cancun. Cheaper would be nice if possible.

      Any busses that do the whole thing? What are the ferry routes? I guess I can just taxi to the ferry ports.

      Thanks. And I hope this hits someone before the site closes. Very sad about that too! Anyone know why VT is closing?

    • Akumal versus Tulum

      by ednewbury Online Now Feb 25, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      My gf and I are travelling to Mexico and it looks like Akumal is an expensive place to stay so we're considering getting accommodation in Tulum instead. Is this a good idea? Is Tulum a nice enough town?

      What is the beach called?????

      by Sarahlu Online Now Jul 14, 2014 at 2:11 AM

      We visited GBP Akumal in April, and when we were there we went for a walk round the headland and found the most beautiful desserted beach. Does anybody know the correct name for this beach as we just call it the `secret beach`.
      We are planning to back to Akumal for a family wedding next year and would like to take some photos on this beach, but need to know the name of it???? Please help...

      Akumal Beach Resort

      by kelypierce Online Now Jan 11, 2013 at 12:42 PM

      Six adults (my siblings and our husbands/wives) are considering staying at the Akumal Beach Resort in April. We are in our mid 50's to mid 60's and have varying interests. My husband and I are scuba divers. My sister and her husband are snorkelers and my brother and his wife are "sit on the beach with a cocktail and read" types. None of us go for nightlife, but we like good food and friendly service.
      Does anyone have an opinion of the ABR? Is it falling into disrepair, as some people seem to think? Would it be a good fit for our group?
      Thank you for any help you can provide.

    • What was the name of the villa where 'paamul' got ripped off?

      by Xcalcontra Online Now Sep 13, 2011 at 2:46 AM

      I read the post of 'paamul' stating that the villa's owner where she stayed got mad and threatened if the '750USD theft'was reported, what is the name of the villa where this happened? It sounds as if the owners had been involved in the theft (thus why they didn't want the theft reported). What a horrible way to be and to ruin anyone's vacation. Many Mexican tourist spots are not safe from theft, but to rent from a nice villa and have the owners come in and steal that's a new wave of loving mammon. I am shocked to hear this. AS a consequence I'd like to know where this happened so that we don't rent there.I encourage everybody to never feel 'threatened' and to DO report incidents like this.
