Tulum is one of the most important cities in the Caribbean Mexico and completely different from the city of Cancun or Playa del Carmen, because in Tulum, the jungle, beach, nomadic life is mixed between the Mayan jungle, beaches, cenotes, caves and is perfectly balanced with luxury hotels, which has totally surreal aspects, some facing the sea, others on pristine beaches and of course, this does not mean that there is no budget accommodation.

All perfect, but there is a small question that we are going to solve here and this is: How to get to Tulum from Cancun, from Cancun airport and / or from Playa del Carmen?
