Shopping in Akumal

Despite its small town feel, Akumal doesn't disappoint with its shopping opportunities.  Here, there are some trendy boutique style shops, high quality art galleries, gift shops with cheap trinkets, and two main grocery stores.  

Be warned that grocery prices can be high, but if you're staying long-term you should head to the local farmer's market on Wednesday and Saturdays, or stop by any of the stands selling local produce along the highways to save on fresh eats.
