Tulum ruins are located 20 minutes by bike from Tulum Pueblo, around 7 minutes by car.
Visiting this beautiful place is a must if you come here, but make sure to come early to avoid the crowds as dozens of tourist buses will arrive after 9.30 am.
It costs only 3-4 $ to enter, I would recommend hiring a guide if you want to know about the history, its not expensive and totally worth it. Don´t forget the sunscreen!
Due to Covid both beaches at Tulum Ruins are closed, but you can still enjoy them from the view point.
Tip: If you come by bike, leave it right where you by the tickets and you will save 15 mins walking!
For us renting a bicycle was perfect. We paid 5-7$ a day and used to go to Tulum Ruins, cenotes, beach area and all around the village.
Renting a taxi in Tulum is very safe, but it can be very pricy, so you will save so much money by renting a bike like we did.
Day trip to Chichen Itza
We came to Yucatán are for two days, but you can perfectly come here as a day trip. You can join a group tour for 60-80$ or rent a car and go on your own.
The entrance fee is around 25$ per person and an extra 25$ if you want a tour guide.
We stayed in a hotel 5 minutes walking from the ruins but people usually stay at Valladolid, the main closet village to Chichen Itza, it takes around 30-40 minutes by car to get here.
Oh, remember trips and drones are not allowed, they will check all your bags. Lockers are available too.
