Avenida Tulum means "Tulum Avenue" and it's basically a small shopping center just outside of the hotel zone. There are several shops in this area that are frequented by locals. It's definitely less "touristy" than down by the hotels, but some of the staff does not speak english. You can ride the bus right from the hotels for all of... More

We stayed in one of the hotels on Avenida Tulum for a week so walked it quite a few times. We ate and drank in a few local eateries but these were few and far between! This is a busy street with loads of traffic so if you expect a leisurely stroll think again, there are several side streets to... More

The only Mayan ruins on the coast, a definite must if you're interested in Mayan ruins. There is a lovely small beach there as well. I recommend taking a tour

Avenida Tulum is one of the main streets in Cancun. You can, quite literally, find anything you want here. Need a shared van to Playa del Carmen - or a bus to the Zone - no problem. Looking to book excursions or buy some milk and eggs - again, no problem. Lunch, dinner, dancing, pubs, shopping, they are all available!... More

We drove to Tulum from Cancun. The trip was smooth and took much faster than expected. We missed the last tour for the day but someone offered us a ride on a speedboat to see the ruins from the sea. It was actually better since we were treated to a view of the ruins from a different perspective, It cost... More

But nothing particularly outstanding about it. The bus service is prompt and there are numerous supermarkets to buy reasonably priced food.
