I was instructed to re-post this topic in this forum. I am sorry if this is the second time you are reviewing it. If it is your second time, no need to reply again! "We are planning a trip to Akumal late July. There will be about 12 of us total and we are renting a house to stay in. This will be my wife and my first trip, but the rest of the group has been a few years in a row now. This is not the same house they have rented, but the same destination. With all the violence going on there we are pretty skepital about our safety. Has anyone traveled there recently ot heard and bad stories of Akumal in particular? I'd appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. Thanks so much."
