How to get to Tulum 

The closest airport near Tulum, Mexico is the Cancun International airport which is 81 miles north of Tulum. Tulum is building an airport that is set to open sometime in 2023, but in the meantime you will need to have transportation from Cancun to Tulum and vice versa. Here are a few of your options on how to get from Cancun to Tulum that we detail in this itinerary: 
  • Rental car
  • Private shuttle
  • Shared shuttle
  • ADO bus
  • Taxi Cab
  • Colectivo

How to get around Tulum

The best option for getting around Tulum is renting a car, especially if you are following this itinerary and going on the recommended day trips from Tulum to Bacalar and Tulum to Chichen Itza. However, for days that you plan to stay local to Tulum, you can easily get around Tulum by taxi, colectivo, or bike. Day trips and tours can also be booked from sites like Tripadvisor or Viator.

Is Tulum Safe

Overall, Tulum is generally safe, especially compared to the rest of Mexico. We’ve been to Mexico several times and we’ve generally felt pretty safe. However, crime does exist in Tulum and most of the crimes are drug related. It is important to keep yourself safe and trust your gut no matter where you are traveling in the world. A few safety tips we have included for this itinerary:
  • Stay on the main roads and drive only during daylight
  • Only carry a small amount of cash on you 
  • Don’t flash valuable items
  • Always be aware of your belongings
  • Keep an eye on your drinks
  • Never be under any influence in public
  • Know and stick to the laws 

Is Tulum Expensive 

Like any vacation, expenses can add up quickly but you can easily visit Tulum on a budget. We are typically pretty budget conscious and for that reason we have a included few tips in this itinerary to help save on costs: 
  • Rent an Airbnb with a kitchen to help save costs on meals
  • Stay near downtown rather than at the beach
  • Rent a car rather than booking tours to cenotes and/or Chichen Itza 
  • Eat where the locals eat rather than at the beach hotels/restaurants

Will this save me any money?

Absolutely! We realize that maybe your perfect Tulum vacation is 3 days or 5 days. The great thing about our itinerary is you can modify it to meet your needs. Perhaps you want to focus solely on Tulum and forgo the day trips outside of Tulum, or maybe visiting just 1 cenote is enough for you.

I can't spend a week in Tulum. Will I still find value in this itinerary?

This itinerary breaks down everything in one PDF guide.

We learn a lot on our trips about things that were worth it, things we wish we did, and the optimal route to take if we could do it over. You benefit from those learnings with this itinerary!
