Shopping in Akumal?

What time do the stores close in Akumal in July? I'm wondering what to do if it rains a lot. We are travelling with our 4 kids. Thanks.

Um, there are not really "stores" per se in Akumal. There are a couple of small grocery/general stores. There are a couple of small clothing/jewelry stores. Nothing to keep a kid occupied for more than roughly 5 minutes.
It will be unlikely to rain for very long.
I'd suggest books and games if they are into that. If not, you may want to make sure you are staying somewhere with (hopefully more than 1) cable TV.

Thanks, Nancy. That's what I needed to know. How about PDC? Are there more stores there than in Akumal? It's not that far away is it?

Hi again Lisa,
Yes, there is a lot to do and see in Playa del Carmen. The beach there is gorgeous, and there are many stores and restaurants (although nothing large and commercial). You can get a cab, or if you have a car it's about 50 minutes from central Akumal.
PDC is definitely worth a day trip.
You could also take the ferry over from PDC to Cozumel for a day. Even more to see/do. If you are staying in Akumal for a week or more, I'd try to do both.
Akumal is beautiful and restful, but it will be pretty quiet there in July.
