best way to get from sandos caracol to tulum ruins?

Wondering what would be the easiest way to get to the Tulum Ruins from Sandos Caracol without taking a colectivo. Looks like possibly taxi into PDC then ADO bus to the ruins? any advice or other suggestions? anyone have a rough price estimate on bus/taxi? I read on here that someone was saying to take the "shuttle" from caracol to PDC but it was an older post, is there a shuttle available from the resort? would probably just me my husband and myself, thanks in advance!

Taxi to Playa would be about 150pesos,

bus to ruins would be 66pesos.

Taxi from your resort to the ruins, you may be able to negotiate down to around 600pesos.

Drive down to the beach clubs on the Tulum road/beach

Cenote visit (perhaps Dos Ojos)

There are no shuttles from the resort. Taxi from Caracol to 5th Ave is $14US.

Good answers to get to the ruins . Reverse them to get back .

or

Walk out the back entrance of the ruins a short way to the beach clubs just south of the site . Have a 25 peso beer at Zazil Kin , hang out . Cab to the main south beach area of Tulum , maybe Ziggy's at Cabanas Tulum with free daybeds for the price of a few beers , hang out a while , cab to Tulum pueblo . ADO back to PDC , a few pesos more than the ruins bus , and cab back to Caracol .

Now I know you said no colectivos , BUT , if you get on at the terminal in Tulum and also at the northbound colectivo terminal in PDC you get to pick your seat simply by waiting for one van to leave these first stops and often can sit in the front seats with a good view and the best A/C for very little money and hardly any delay . The areas near the almost adjacent ADO and colectivo terminals in both Tulum and PDC have much to offer the tourist/diner/shopper and can make a much fuller day more fun if you choose .
