Akumal Advice?

Hi All,

We are gearing up for a 10 day trip in November - staying 5 nights in Akumal and 5 night in Isla Mujeres.

We've only visited Akumal a couple of times for day trips and never stayed there, so we are unfamiliar with it. We are renting a condo on Half Moon Bay (north end, near Yal-ku lagoon).

For those of you who are experienced Akumal visitors....Any tips on good restaurants that we can walk to for breakfast, lunch and dinner? We don't cook much when we are on vacation. We don't eat meat, but we do eat everything else (fish, cheese, eggs, etc.).

I believe the beach in front of the condo is rocky so we will bring water shoes and snorkeling gear. Are there any non-rocky, non-rough beaches within walking distance of this area that would be good for swimming?

If we were to rent a car, can you recommend a good rental car company that we can pick up the car at the CUN airport? Ideally, (if possible), we'd like to return it in Cancun Centro as we are heading from Akumal to Isla Mujeres and will be headed there to get the ferry. If that's not feasible, I guess we would return it at the airport and take a taxi to the ferry dock.

If we decide NOT to rent a car, where is the closest LARGE supermarket (a.k.a. Chedraui or MEGA)?

Any other tips/suggestions are welcome. THANKS!!!
