Ruins

What are the closest and/or most interesting Ruins around the Catalonia? Is it best to rent a car or are there buses, etc. to get there? Where is best place to rent a car and cost for a day or two?

Tulum Ruins are close-by and options include purchasing a tour from your resort activity desk or taking a private taxi or colectivo and doing it on your own. There is a great little beach there as well!

Arrangements for a car rental can also be made at your resort, however, there are many precautions when doing so, and you should do a topic search from the green shade box at the top of this column to read many of the prior posts regarding car rentals!

Tulum is beautiful and only about 30 minutes from the Cat. Taxis are readily available and fairly inexpensive. We use taxis so we don't have to worry about any of the hassle of a rental car. We usually spend all morning in Tulum then taxi over to Akumal and snorkel the rest of the day. Fun Fun

The Tulum ruins are lovely. We timed our taxi arrival to right when the gates opened. We had the whole place to ourselves, practically. It was much nicer than when we were leaving and all the tours had arrived- by then it was a sea of people.

Remember to have pesos for admission. They do not take foreign currency. When we were there it was 51 pesos per person but I don't know if it has increased. They have guides available if you would like to hire someone to explain the site/ history.

The best value for transportation is a collectivo. A $20 cab ride is about $2 in a collectivo. Its basically a shared taxi. They are airconditioned vans that run up and down the highway and hit up all the major areas. There will be a collectivo stop right outside your resort as it is how most resort employees get to and from work. Save money and hang with the locals. I use it everytime Im down there. They even take US$ but it is cheaper to pay with pesos.
