The Coba is set back on the property , behind the Akumal , so it is not on the beach. Some of the Tulum buildings are on the beach , some are not. Tulum is usualy more expensive. Coba is filled with 3 story buildings with 6 or 8 units per floor around the outside of a square. . Tulum is more like a townhouse development , the rooms are in rows. Google bahia principe tulum , about the 5th site down has some images , the 2nd image is a good map of the whole resort. Save it to your pictures , and you can zoom in on it. It even shows the building numbers. On the map , Coba are blue buildings , Akumal are yellow , Tulum are brown. The ocean up at the tulum end is quite rocky.

At the Bahia , walking is an option. There are little golf cart looking trams going back and forth all over the place to take you where you want to go. Buildings 1 , 2 , 3 , and 4 at the coba are actually very close to the akumal priemiere and only a short walk from there to the beach. Check it out on the map.
