If you wonder how to get to Tulum, it is fairly easy.
Most hotels in Cancún (the closest city to the Tulum ruins) either have bus tours to Tulum, or information on when and where to catch the bus.
If you are driving a rental car, simply take Mexican Highway 307 south, out of Cancun.
See here Tulum on the map.
When is Tulum best visited?
The ruins at Tulum are open between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., but it’s best to get there early in the morning or late in the day to avoid the crowds.
