The pictures and descriptions on the listing describe the place as it is. We were a group of 4 adults that wanted to visit the area and not go all-inclusive....we wanted to get out and see the sights, and we did. Xel-Ha, Xplor, Akumal Bay, the beaches of tulum, scooters on Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen, the beach across the street, Cenotes...... We did not rent a car so we relied completely on taxi, busses and collectivo - which did work easily, but a car would have been nice to have. We bought a few groceries and things and the grocery store in Tulum, and a few things from Chemuyil. We really enjoyed La Palapa restaraunt in Chemuyil. If you give him a days notice he can have lobster for you the next night. We also had pizza from Leo's and went to the bar in town a few times. We had a great time and i think we will be back. The ocean is so beautiful....we have to go back.
