1st time visiting Mexico : Bahia Principe Tulum

I'd like to know some of the best places to go, nicest places to see and great places to eat. I'd like to tour WITHOUT the ''set guides'' booked through the resort. Would it be safe to use public transit? Or would using a cab be safer?


Traveling Sept 18th-25th

Does anyone know the schedule of Bahia Principe Tulum Buffet? I seriously NEED the seafood night :)

The public transit vans called colectivos are as safe as taxis . The Grand Bahia Principe complex is closer to the village of Akumal and all of the confusingly named sections of GBP are actually on one huge resort property . There is more GBP info than you will ever need on the Akumal forum . There are many things to see , on your own and very easily and inexpensively . The first tab of the Akumal forum's top questions has some very good maps and other references to learn a lot more as well .
