We rented a golf cart for a week while on Spring Break. The cart was delivered on time to our condo (so nice). It got us all over Akumal for the week and was a lot of fun.

Slightly over-priced key chains, Christmas ornaments, Frieda Kahlo everything, metal art, trinkets. A really cute and fun assortment of luchador (Mexican wrestler) gifts.

Amazing handmade gifts if you like colourful art from Mexico. All kind of figures related with the day of the death in Mexico and much more. Perfect place to hire bikes and golf cars to explore the area
