If possible I'd try to upgrade to Sian kaan or akumal section, much better options and service.

I would try see price for Sian Kaan as that is adults only & cheaper sometimes that Coba & Tulum.

If you have to pick I would say Tulum as Coba very family orientated.

Lorraine, find and read my two latest reviews. One of Sian Kaan last May and of Coba this past January.

We are 50’s couple too and my reviews are from that point of view.

It seems you are shooting for the more budget friendly resorts (Coba & Tulum) but might have a better time at Akumal or Sian Ka'an (depends what you're vacation stlye is... age don't mean a thing).

If you find you prefer the luxury resorts but don't want to pay full price I would stay at Coba (generally cheaper than Tulum. Also from everything I read it's easy to stay seperate from most of the children if your room is near the quite pool... So maybe request a specific room area in advance via email. That's our plan.) and upgrade your bracelet for $15/day/pp when you arrive and use all the luxury resorts facilities (except the a la cartes).

Budget + luxury. We are booked at Coba and are highly considering iograding our bracelets.

preferred Tulm to Sian Ka'an

Tulum is on the ocean, Sian is a cart ride...too far to really walk..

Sian was nice but a little to sedate for us

we are in our 60's
