Stay in Tulum or Akumal?

Jump to last reply

We have decided to vacation in Riviera Maya in March or April of this year and I know similar questions regarding this have been posted before, but my question is a little different. We have narrowed it down to staying in either Tulum or Akumal area due to being closer to the sites and things we want to do.

My question is regarding which has the better swimmable beaches? I know Akumal is better for snorkeling, and I've heard people say they prefer Tulum beaches to Akumal beaches. What I'm wondering is how rough is the surf at Tulum? Is it rougher or just as rough as the Mexico Pacific and California coast? Does it ever have days it stays calmer and more swimmable? Or would you say Akumal is better for that. I'm assuming the reason most people prefer Tulum beaches is the bigger stretch of sand?

Where do you think would be better for nice sandy beach and swimmable water?
