Distance from Akumal to Playa Del Carmen

Hi,

I have reviewed the following map:

http://www.cancun.bz/table_of_distances.htm

And note that the distance between the two cities is approximately 34km (or 21 miles), so I'm guessing no more than a 20 minute drive. How much does the bus cost (in pesos and/or US dollars) that goes between these two cities? How much is a cab? Also, is this the closest Wal Mart to Akumal?

Thanks!

Steph

The bus called a Colectivo (air conditioned vans) that run up and down the hwy every few minutes costs 30 pesos / 3$ US each way/ each person

Taxi will cost $25-30 US

Yes, closest WalMart is PDC

Thank you Vancouversundog. Any idea what time the Colectivos run until? 'Cause I was thinking I could take one of those to Playa del Carmen in the evening!
