We are planning to spend a beach/ snorkeling day in Akumal. Where can we rent a cabana or grab some drinks in a quiet beach setting? We are not beach club people.
What about a locker to keep your valuables safe while in the water?
Haven't seen any cabanas and it's often windy for umbrellas. Find a palm to sit under that doesn't have coconuts on it.
Also, if you plan on snorkeling with the turtles in the bay; they are strongly against wearing sunscreen because it is a turtle sanctuary. So if you plan to spend the day you will need some shade.
Hi, we didn't rent a cabana but there are two places on that beach that rent out equipment and they might have cabanas available. Although we spent all of our time in the water, there were plenty of trees and shady spots on the beach to park yourself under. There is also a casual spot to order lunch and a beer. It was crowded but better than leaving the premises. Close by, on the way in, was turtle cove restaurant which was great.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. We rented snorkeling equipment there and opted to go on our own. One of the kids on the beach took us around after my daughters befriended him, and he gave us the best tour ever. He was very gracious and thankful for the tip I insisted he take, and it was worth every peso.
