Tulum with children

by oopsyd

We are looking at a trip to Tulum some time in March 2008 with our two children ages 6 and 18months We've not done much traveling as a family and we'd like some advise about where to stay on the beach. Are there any places available with kitchens that aren't too expensive? If not in Tulum are there other places in the region that you'd recommend? Thanks!

Re: Tulum with children

I jsut returned from Playa Del Carmen and Tulum last week and just spent some time in some very rustic cabanas on the beach. They are very basic but you cannot beat the location. There are not cooking facilities but there is a very tasty and inexpensive restaurant on site. The cabanas are $30 USD per night for basically a big free standing room. Toilet and shower are shared. They are located on the road that leads to the back of the ruins. The name is Mar Caribe cabanas and the restaurant is Don Prieto. There is an excellent new taco stand on the main road as you enter Tulum. It is the first retaurant on the righthand side, with red chairs and tables, called Urge tacos. Very, very fresh and tasty and cheap. Fish tacos are $1.50 USD. If you are not into camping/roughing it.....I know people who stayed at Esmeralda and Diamante
resorts. I do not know what they are charging now, but I beleve they are fairly affordable. The cabanas are Mar Caribe could be a fun adventure and they are located RIGHT on the beach. Have fun and good luck !!

www.mexicancarribean.com - this website will provide you with a list of cabanas in Tulum and what they offer both in price and convienences like a kitchenette for example. One tip I have is after deciding on a cabana I would then google it and see if there is a way to book directly through the cabana which will save you money as the above websites charge the cabanas for reservations made on their site which of course gets passed on to you. Tulum would be an excellent choice for young children as the beaches are not crowded so it should be easy to keep track of them. Be sure to take advantage of the grocery store you will see when you arrive in Tulum on route 307. They sell styroform coolers and ice so you can save on beverages which are exorbitantly priced at the cabanas. Plus they seel plenty of fresh fruit and baked goods so you will save a bundle on food. Feel free to email me directly if you have any other questions.

Travel Tips for Tulum

Watching the sun

by Lady_Disdain

On the sides of the main temple (the Castillo), there are two small buildings, easily overlooked. They are, however, critical to the site, as they mark the days when the rains start and end.

Since there is little flowing water on the Peninsula, the crops depend on rain to grow and must be planted and tended accordingly. If the rains are late or last too long, food may be scarce.

These small temples mark the start and end of the rainy period. As the picture shows, there is a small hole on the back wall, turned towards the sunrise. On the dawn the sun shines through this, the rains should be expected.

Mexican Independence Day

by wilocrek

September 16th is when Mexico celebrates it independence. In Tulum they hold a very festive celebration in the city park, just off main street. The have lots of local food and entertainment and the party went on for hours. The also had a dance and celebrated with a fireworks display. I found it a fun experience even if I did get a bunch of strange looks from the locals, but it was a neat way to look into their culture. So if your in Tulum on Sept. 16th plan to spend your evening in the park, celebrating another countries independence. Don't worry if they give you the "gringo" look, your peso spends the same as their peso!

Watch out for the Iguana's!

by wilocrek

This scaly lizards roam free and wild all over the grounds in Tulum so keep a sharp eye out for them. They loiter on the paths and in the bushes near the paths as well. They mind their own business and add to the exotic flavor of Tulum!

Taxis

by SJTravel

One of the only ways to get around Tulum is to take a taxi. It is really annoying because it can get costly. They are pretty strict about the fees and they are not that big on bargaining. Basically to get mostly anywhere not within walking distance, it is about 40 Mexican Pesos.

Seafood tip

by TandP77 about Don Huacho

This place specializes in seafood. Really great ceviches, but also fresh fish. They also serve other dishes as well. Service fast and friendly, top value for money.

Ambience - you're in the wrong place. This is a hole in the wall with a view of the auto spares shop opposite.

Important - as with all traditional fish restaurants, this place is only open for lunch, and is shut in the evenings. That way you know that the fish you are eating is absolutely fresh caught that same morning. The Huacho special. A ceviche.
