It's easy! How to get to Akumal and Playa Caribe:

Upon leaving the Cancun airport, turn right (South) on highway 307 following signs toward Chetumal/Xcaret then Playa del Carmen/Xel-Ha. Stay in the left hand lane and follow the sign towards Tulum/Cozumel. Akumal is located one and a half hours south of Cancun approximately 95 kilometers (60 miles). Along your way you will pass Puerto Morelos, (a good place to stop for drinks or gas), followed by Playa del Carmen which is 55 kilometers (35 miles) south of the airport. You then pass Puerto Aventuras Resort and Xpu-Ha. Approximately 6 kilometers (4 miles) after Xpu-Ha you will see the first Akumal highway signs. The entrance to "Akumal Playa" is well marked by overhead highway signs and you will see it on your left just after a large overhead pedestrian bridge and local traffic fly over bridge.  The median will not allow you to turn there. Just before the bridges slow down, stay in the left lane, and follow the RETORNO sign to Akumal Playa which points you to your left.  Stop and wait for traffic to clear and carefully U-turn left now heading north on 307. You will take a right into the community of Akumal Playa immediately before the local traffic flyover bridge.  If you pass under the bridges again you have gone too far.  The road towards Akumal merges with the local traffic road shortly after the highway turn off.  Please yield to the local traffic at the yield sign, and take care when merging.


Once you have entered Akumal, continue down the road and under the arches.  Stay to your left where the road splits to the north. This will lead you to Half Moon Bay and Yal-Ku lagoon. 


Playa Caribe  is located approximately one mile from the entrance of Akumal. You will pass Mi Casa del Mar Condominiums to your right. Continuing to through Half Moon Bay you will La Buena Vida Restaurant and Bar and Vista del Mar Condominiums. Soon you will see the Midway store to your left, and just following Playa Caribe to your right. It is marked by a roadside sign.


Enjoy your stay :)
