20 pesos or $2 us. About 10-15 minutes

Make sure you tell the driver the ruins other wise you will go to the town (which is also enjoyable to walk around)

The collectivo is new to us! do you have to be on on side of the road to go north and the other to go south?

Plan on using it for Xel-ha also any issues there?

one side of the road will take you south and the other will take you north, be very careful crossing the road.

Hey Muskieteer,

We've used the local transport many times and it's very easy when you get used to it.

My wife and I will be arriving on the 13th and we're planning for Tulum & Xel-ha as well as snorkeling at Akumal bay and a trip tp PDC.....using the collectivo for all trips. We'll probably see you around the resort.

I'm trying to organize a pool party at the bar on Saturday if you are interested.

What times are they running in the morning? Assume it would be good to get to Tulum early. We arrive at Bahia Principe Coba October 15. Planning on using the Collectivo to travel to the ruins and Akumal Bay to snorkel. Thanks for the advice and traveling tips.
