First for those who are confused, THIS IS TULUM AVENUE in CANCUN... NOT to be confused with the city of Tulum!!! The Tulum Avenue can be accessed via city bus or taxi from the hotel zone, and is located in the central district of Cancun....More

90% of the reviews of Avenue Tulum are factually incorrect. This is a shopping street in downtown Cancun and not the Tulum Archeological site in Rivera Mia. This is why you should read reviews on here with a grain of salt. It appears most do...More

Tulum Avenue is at the entrance of Cancun's downtown. There you can find money exchange kiosks with good exchanging rates, three big supermarkets, and a couple of bars and discos.
