This 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.

Wouldn't ol' Guerrero and his chica prefer the beach view like he had years ago?

Morning...well, so far all is quiet.  No one at the entrance as of right now.  The blockade is up but halfway.

Does 'halfway' mean you can leave Akumal but you can't come in?  Thanks so much again for the updates.

Hi MB, our first trip to Akumal was 1981, this photo is actually from 1983, Wife and Son. I believe the Statue was in the same place as in Susy's photo just a different angle.
Here is an Brochure that might shed some light on the access issues, maybe not but still fun to check out...

We 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?

Finishing up packing here today...so excited!  I take it the blockade hasn't happened again today?  Just looking for some good news before we head down there tomorrow.  Thanks.

It is my understanding that there is no fee.

Alex, do you think the structures below the road going to HMB were former worker/local housing?
This picture was along that road in 1983.

The locals used to live there before they were "moved" across the highway.

Probably not.  Its the tour groups that come in with organized tours as I understand it.

Hey Steve!  We arrived Saturday afternoon and have had nothing but pure, undisturbed Akumal happiness since our arrival.  Not sure what the road situation is RIGHT NOW as we're on HMB and just getting up this morning.  We've encountered no blockades or unrest whatsoever.  Akumal Bay beach was jam-packed yesterday but that's normal for Sundays.  Walked the beach south to check out the new Secrets (no big deal really) and determined it's addition hadn't messed up paradise ;-).  We also hit YalKu yesterday and it was just gorgeous; very few people, quiet, beautiful, tons of fish, water not too cloudy.  (Over the years we've taken to doing YalKu from 3-5pm over any other time of day, as the rays of light into the lagoon make it magical and the fish are feeding in giant balls/schools).  Also tried the new Taverna restaurant last night and it was really quite good...giant slices of avocado deep fried with a lemon cilantro dipping sauce.  Yea baby.
 
It's not 1983 but this place is still the be all, end all for us.
