WifeyI have a friend down there now. She is supposed to leave tomorrow and is concerned about being able to get out. There are many pix and articles being posted on FB groups for Akumal.
Jazzsmith10 So sad to see this in such a beautiful place! We are looking forward to returning in June for the first time in 3 years. I hope this situation is resolved by then.
KayThey are only stopping outside snorkel tour groups from entering and exiting.
Cathie9We will be checking for updates up until Saturday morning when we leave. Our biggest concern is being able to get into Akumal with our groceries/luggage and making it to the condo. We are currently considering making some kind of back-up plan for lodging e.g. booking a hotel room in Playa or something. Thanks again for keeping us posted.
Make sure you have the manager's contact number if you run into difficulties.
Please if you are coming today and have concerns contact us
Cathie9Kay: When you say guests in the Akumal area are allowed to walk in, what does that mean for those of us who rent a car in Cancun and drive to Akumal? Thank you.
Cathie9Wow, this is going to make for an interesting vacation! Where is it that people are parking in the pueblo; any designated area?
CheeseheadWe are there now. We left our condo this morning for Tulum based on the report only snorkel tours were being stopped. We left without problem. Trying to get back in was different. When we returned from Tulum about 3:45, no vehicles were being allowed in at all. After about an hour delay, someone decided to let vehicles enter, but we were warned when we went in that was likely only temporary. Vehicles were still able to leave (at least then). This is intolerable and NOT what we paid for.
Mayan BoarKay, you are right. It sucks for everyone and lots of folks are being impacted. Everyone is working triple-time to do everything they can to take care of guests, workers, etc. The timing stinks with high season and the destruction of the statue was just wrong. Thanks for all your updates. MB
KayOk so the road is open, the road is closed, the road is open again. ( a tad bi polar as you can see) The situation is very fluid. Please if you are coming today and have concerns contact us, we are taking care of everyone who as questions or concerns.
SusyThis is where it was in 1992 ~ facing the beach with the Lol Ha restaurant to the left, the pizza restaurant at the right. " />

" />Ok so ask the story I heard goes, this may have been where the public access was way back when (or this could be an urban legend). There was public egress access on the far side of the hotel as you go towards the ABR which is gone now. It was a great coconut grove.
water babyThanks Kay and Locogringo for being there and on top of things! Your insight and info is trusted and appreciated.
mcmaryaWe will be in the area for a short stay in late April and, unfortunately won't be able to stay in Akumal. As day trippers (on foot), will we likely have to pay $12 to get in?
