Customer Travel Tip: Get to the ruins and cenotes early. Consider renting a motorbike to visit more nearby places at your pace.

Liked: Close proximity to ruins and cenotes. Locally owned restaurants.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: The cenotes and the public beach!

Liked: Great beach, great places for eating (especially fish and sea food), very interesting archaeological site, cenotes nearby.

Disliked: The archaeological sites, the cenotes and the beach are a little outside the public area of Tulum, so you have to rent a bike or scooter or go by taxi (walking would be very hard with these temperatures).

Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: If you have the money and want beach go to a Hotel with beachfront. Otherwise rent a good bike or scooter to get around. Walking distances are too far.

Liked: The public beach was okay but quite far to get there from the town center. The possibility to buy groceries to prepare budget-food. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Possibility of collectivos to many places around Tulum.

Disliked: That most beaches were bloked by hotels. Bad bicycles.
