Family (all adult) trip to Akumal or Tulum area

Wondering where we should stay closer to Akumal or closer to Tulum? Family young adults (20's) parents and aunt (68 yrs). Like water sports, site seeing, relaxing shopping eating, etc.

Did you want an AI? Of so look at Secret Akumal. If you don't want AI then check out hotels in Tulum.

I don't think you'll find a lot of watersports in Tulum though.

It will also partly depend on your budget, beachfront hotels in Tulum are pretty pricey compared to a condo or two in Akumal or Half Moon Bay. Akumal is better for snorkeling, in Tulum the reef is much further out. The vibe in Tulum is very chilled and laid back and beach is beautiful.
