How to get to Tulum

You can get to Tulum from a nearby city of Cancun or from Playa del Carmen.

In Playa del Carmen there is an international airport, and from there you can transfer by bus or taxi service to Tulum itself. Cancun also offers bus transfers, but it is twice longer to get to Tulum from Cancun, so we recommend you to use Playa del Carmen as your first destination.
