Tulum avenue is one of the main streets in downtown Cancun. It is NOT a Mayan ruin. It is a very busy street. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and hotels. Make sure that you pay attention when crossing the road. Go to the cross walks and even then you need to be careful.

There are no words to describe one of the most spectacular places in the world. Cancun offers to the national and foreign tourists many attractions, such as: incredible coral reefs for snorkeling and scuba diving, sport-fishing and jungle tours. Cancun was part of the ancient Mayan civilization and it is still considered the gateway to the Mayan World. White sand... More

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
