Tulum - Info-Tips

Opening hours: 8-17, last admission 16.30

Admission: yes, children under 12 free


From Cancun (130 km, 1.5 hours): Take the MEX 307; turn off the bus before the modern village "Tulum Pueblo" at the junction to the ruins "El Crucero Ruinas". Buses and colectivos stop here. Now it is a 700 m walk to the ruins or you can take the little tourist train.
Self Drivers follow the main road about 300 meters further and turn off according to the signs "Ruinas Tulum" to a large visitor parking.
Beach residents coming from the south can go by bike or car taking the small beach road to the ruins. Here you can find also free parking places.


The best way to explore the site without hundreds of tourists next to you is to be there at 8 a.m., so it will be relatively quiet for about an hour.
