Tulum was a hidden gem until recently. My friend, an ICU nurse and I decided that once the Covid rates dropped, we were going on vacation. We worked hard and deserved it. Mexico was reopening with no travel restrictions so Tulum seemed like the perfect choice. This was my 2nd trip to Tulum. My one rule for going to a destination again is to not do the same things I did the first time. My goal for this trip was to find all the insta-worthy backgrounds I could find and I think I did a good job.
Ok so here's the Tea. Tulum is about 2 hours from Cancun. Catch a cheap flight into Cancun and pre-arrange for airport transportation to Tulum. It should cost you less than $100 roundtrip.
The condo zone is called Aldea Zama. If you are renting an Airb&b, I would recommend staying here. It's a short cab ride to the hotel zone and downtown. If you are staying in a hotel, you are in the midst of restaurants, shops and beach clubs, you don't really need to venture far unless you want to experience downtown. Both times I traveled to Tulum, I stayed in an Airb&b so I can't really recommend a hotel.
Also, I've been asked about our Airb&b. It was cute condo over looking the jungle of Tulum, within walking distance of downtown.
