"Car, bus, taxi.. ??" Tulum Transportation Tip by Abeyna

Tulum Transportation: 39 reviews and 28 photos

Problems with regards to getting about in Tulum is merely that the town and the beach and Tulum ruins are several miles apart. Several people opt for the beach, staying in beachside cabanas, living in basic accommodation. Others that prefer hot water and guaranteed electricity, stay in town.

Travelling between the two is an issue because of the distance. Taxis charge about 40pesos between the town and beach. Some collectivos may go to the beach I think. If you stay at the Weary travller hostel, they offer a bus which goes twice a day. Otherwise, you may consider renting a car, which isn´t exactly cheap in Tulum.. and what you get isn´t always the best in quality.
