Where to stay
Alternatives: getting to Tulum from Cancun Airport
Rent a car in Cancun and drive 1h30 following signs to Playa del Carmen (about 45h) then to Tulum. Rentals prices are relatively low (common U$ 50/day all in). Use major companies (Hertz, Enterprise, Avis, etc) to avoid inconveniences. Driving is seamless, a straight line as you can see on the map to the left (click for directions)
Taxis are available at the airport and would cost you around U$75 for a car. You can either secure a reliable car inside or go bidding outside, if you're in the mood.If you have a large group or want to quote a car or a van for any other reason try this company:
