Akumal beach and wellness resort excursion options

Hello,

Me and my hubby to be will be travelling here for our honeymoon next month as was wondering what excursions are available from our hotel? I have been looking online and have booked an xplor visit through their website but think we are going to leave any further booking until we get there.

Any advice around trips, excursions and things to do would be much appreciated:)

Thank you

Tim at their excursion desk is great and very knowledgeable

I would wait until you arrive

You never know what the weather will be and how you feel

There are some less tourist magnet parks than Xplor such as Selva Maya and a few other cenote parks

Most do NOT need an excursion but just a quick taxi or colectivo ride

Perhaps try my Akumal golf cart tour of Half Moon Bay or a Tulum Beach Club walk (crawl)

Ruins such as Coba with bikes or a bicycle cart tour

How about a monkey sanctuary visit??

I have bookmarked many of these over on the right under top questions (using a normal computer) or click on the top tab called "Things to Do"

Thank you!

If you don’t mind my asking. When you went did you take dollars, pesos or both? Especially with tipping the staff I don’t want to give them dollars if their actual currency is pesos if that makes sense. As I have read different reviews I’m not sure

Take pesos. 20 & 50 notes are useful for tipping.
