This beach might be very nice if you visit the ruins around peak times. Therefore it can be recommended to enjoy the beach esrly in the morning while only a few visitors are around. But also later during the stroll through the arqueological site it...More

The beach is nice, but the day we were there the wind was too strong to swim and there was a lot of seaweed! The view was really nice with the beach and Maya ruins!

Leave the oppressive heat and desert dust of Chicken Itza behind and instead visit these beautiful cliffside ruins. Bring your swimsuit as the Mayan Beach is a great way to cool down mid visit.

Come down to this beach when visiting Tulum, it's stunning. If you can, bring a bathing suit so you can go swimming. Lots of people though.

Nice scenery and calls for excellent photos! However, expect large crowds and lots of seaweed! Probably best to get in early when it's less crowded.

We stayed in the downtown area and truly loved it. The beach area is about an $8 taxi from downtown, so not a big deal. But you definitely also move up in tax bracket from one to the other too. Whereas downtown has many very...More

The only way I know to visit this beautiful strip of sand below the Tulum Ruins is down a stairway from the ruins - or maybe via kayak (haven't tried it, just assume it's a way to get there). The beach is pristine, white sand...More

I haven't had any experience with renting a car there, but from my personal experience, if you're staying close enough to food and what not, I would stick with taking a taxi or bus. If taking a taxi, I'd ask for a trip... More
