Hi Terry,

It has been many years (late '80s) since I visited this area. We stayed at Akumal. This is a beach area south of Playa del Carmen. It is located on a half moon bay and has a small very scenic lagoon at the beach. It has been a scuba diving area for a long time. Around the lagoon are many condos, apartments and villas for rent. There is also a hotel at the main beach. There is a small grocery store if you decide to do your own cooking or a good restaurant at the hotel. We rented a two bedroom condo through Hotel Akumal Caribe. They have a great web site at http://www.hotelakumalcaribe.com

We had a car and drove to several of the other beaches in the area along with Xel-ha and Tulum. The snorkling was great and the beaches were outstanding. Soft white sand with just right warm water.

Happy travels, Marta in Washington State
