The main option of transportation here is by bike!..weather it’s to get around town or make your way to the beach.However, you can also move around via taxi, bus or your own car rental….walking works too!
The town of Tulum is extremely safe (day or night), you will find yourself surrounded by other visitors from all over the world at all times.
Prices can vary depending on what you are looking for and if you prefer to lodge in town or right by the ocean. I like to look for a more genuine experience by booking a space through Airbandb. During my visit I booked a private suite located in a gorgeous artists loft, right in the heart of town. I was literally steps away from all the amazing shops, restaurants and bars…..and only minutes away from the ocean.

My go to site to find the best possible deal is TripAdvisor, I like to create at least three alerts based on my prefer flexible travel dates. I continually check for updates on air fair pricing using the app on my phone.
Keep an eye out for extremely cheap tickets to Cancun during the low seasons, you will be surprise to know how cheap a ticket can drop price. Once you find a deal on airfare make sure to make the purchase almost immediately, air fair prices can rise within hours!
What ever you chose to do in Tulum, just remember one thing……. once you have experience this place you will never be the same! Welcome to paradise on earth.
