Highly considering a week long vacation to Tulum around the end of January or beginning of February. I'm really just looking for a place with beautiful beaches and relaxation. Any recommendations for other places are welcome.
A couple of questions about Tulum:
1) Is a car really necessary? My bf and I would probably prefer not to drive while on vacation. I realize that we would have to take a taxi into town, and I figure we'd probably do that on most days. Would it be cheaper just to take a taxi than to rent a car for 6-7 days?
2) What recommendations do you all have for excursions (for example, would want to visit the ruins, Sian Kian, etc)? For the sake of convenience, I sort of prefer organized tours that include transportation. Are there any websites or companies I should look into? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
