Where is Tulum?

Lose yourself in what could only be described as paradise along the Caribbean coastline in Mexico. Tulum is a breathtaking stretch of land famous for its soft white sandy beaches and bohemian vibe. Mexico's eastern coast has a reputation as the ultimate destination for an unplugged beach vacation for a good reason. You'll spend your days here eating fresh fish tacos, doing yoga overlooking the water, and reading in a palapa on the beach. Secluded though this part of Mexico may be, getting to and around the area is actually pretty easy. There are several hassle-free ways of getting to Tulum.
  • By Plane - Cancun International Airport is the main airport in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo and where most visitors will fly in. From the Cancun airport, it's about a 90-minute drive south on the main highway to Tulum. One can either take private bus transportation, public bus transportation or rent a car.
  • Private Option - Cancun Airport Transportation is a convenient and safe private option that will pick you up directly at the airport and drop you off straight to your hotel. They offer both one-way transportation or roundtrip and are the fastest option if you want to land and go.
  • Public Bus from Cancun or Playa Del Carmen - Depending on where you are, these two cities are Quintana Roo's main transport junction. Alternatively, one can take the local bus, ADO. Double check on your trip dates and flight schedule as there may or may not be a direct ADO bus from Cancun Airport to Tulum. If there isn't a direct option, you can take the bus route to Playa del Carmen and transfer.
  • Rent a car - This is also a stress-free option if you're the type of person to take your time in exploring. If you personally do not want to drive, taxis are fairly easy to come by, and accept both U.S. dollars and Mexican pesos-but you're likely to get the best deal paying in pesos.
In contrast to the high-end resorts in neighboring cities like Cancun and the Riviera Maya, Tulum offers more eco-friendly options that embrace the laid-back nature of Tulum. At Ahau Collection, each of our hotels is made up of people from different cultural backgrounds and age groups who share the same vision: a great respect for nature and individuality. And unlike other beach getaways in Mexico, our ideal location makes it easy for visitors to explore every part of Tulum, from historic ruins and the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve to world-class shops and restaurants. Discover our range of stunning beach houses and hotels whether you prefer the sea or the jungle, let yourself flow with nature in the resort of your choice!
