Ruinas mayas de Tulum desde Playa del Carmen

by victor72

Hola amigos viajeros !!

A ver si me podéis ayudar.
En breve llegaré a Cozumel y mi idea es hacer Tulum por libre. Primero, ferry a Playa del Carmen, pero de ahí para llegar a Tulum, me surgen muchas dudas :
¿Es posible ir en bus desde la estación de autobuses de Playa del Carmen ? o quizá hay otras opciones mejores : ¿ las vans dónde se pueden tomar en Playa del Carmen ? o ¿ ir en taxi,sobre cúanto puede costar desde Playa del Carmen?
Por último, ¿ es posible pagar en dólares los medios de transporte y la entrada a las ruinas mayas de Tulum o hay que cambiar a pesos ?
Muchas gracias. Y saludos desde España.
Victor

Hola Victor! En primer lugar, disculpa por mi español, espero que puedes entender :o) La mejor manera de llegar a Tulum desde Playa del Carmen es de tomar el colectivo (las vans) en la Calle 2 Norte, entre avenidas 15 y 20 (es muy cerca del ferry). Deberia costar 20 o 30 pesos (entonces $2 o $3 - es posible pagar en dolares). Tambien es posible pagar en dolares la entrada a las ruinas.

Saludos Victor. Estoy de acuerdo con Jefie. Solo te suguiero que cambies unos 50 a 100 dlls a pesos. Si puedes pagar en dolares pero no duele estar preparado para lo inesperado. Con solo dlls te pueden "transear" con el cambio. Rumbo a Tulum del lado izquierdo al sur de PDC te suguiero visitar "ACHTUNCHEN" es una cueva muy espectacular. Lleva tu traje de bano para nadar en Tulum.

Muchas gracias Jefie y Julio por vuestra ayuda !!

Una pregunta, por favor ¿ sabéis si es fácil encontrar cajeros automáticos ATM o casas de cambio en Playa del Carmen, para cambiar de dólares a pesos o tengo que cambiarlos en España ?

Muchas gracias. Saludos.

Saludos Victor. Hay muchos cajeros en PDC en La calle 5ta. (The main drag-donde estan TODOS los restaurantes, bars clubs, etc.) Es mejor cambiar tus E's O D's en Hotel por pesos para no tener problemas de buscar. PERO tambien hay casa de cambio. YO suguiero salir del Hotel con lo que quieres gastar YA en pesos.

Mr. Iguana

by Blatherwick

I found this guy chowing down on the leaves at El Castillo. There are quite a few iguanas in the area. Apparently they were considered a delicacy by the Maya at one time which isn't surprising as they would be an abundant food source. So chow down Iggy before someone eats you!

I learned the hard way...you don't have to!

by wilocrek

I would recommend bringing a backpack as opposed to standard luggage. There is a steep staircase from the restaurant down to the beach. Plus if your planning on exploring the rest of the Yucatan and your using the bus, having a backpack or large duffel bag is a must. I would recommend bringing a pair of hiking shoes if your planning on exploring the Mayan ruins around the Yucatan, some of which still allow you to climb the pyramids. Otherwise simple waterproof sandals will work and you can use them in the shared shower facilities as well. Bring a lightweight, jogging style pants to wear at night. This will help to keep the mosquito's from feasting on your legs and they will, repellent or not! Bring a couple pair of swim trunks that have zippered pockets. That way you can carry items with you and not have to have a bag with you all the time. For example I would put money inside a ziploc bag and then put it in my swim suit pockets and swim all day and not only did I have cash when I needed for a drink, snack, etc, the money was dry! Don't try it with your Ipod or camera though! Bring the strongest Deet Mosquito repellent you can find and bring lots of it! No matter what time of year it is the Yucatan is swarming with them and they are unforgiving! At all times after being in the water, spray every exposed crevice on your body, specifically the feet as thats a favorite target for mosquito's as people rarely spray their feet. I made that mistake my first trip and my feet were covered with bites! If you go into the camping section of any sporting goods store you can by a sort of "mosquito incense" that you can burn in your cabana at night and it does a terrific job of keeping those blood sucking bastards at bay! Bring a combination lock to use to lock up your cabana. The cabanas have old key style locks that are rusted. Plus with a combination lock you don't have to worry about a key!

CESIAK

Within the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve is a government-affiliated lodge. It is immersed in palm forest between a lake and the sea. The accomodations are tents with shared baths. I went snorkeling off the rugged beach and saw a giant sea turtle (Mid-May).

THE TULUM TRAIN

by LoriPori

The first thing you see when you arrive at the Tulum Ruins is a square, where they sell souvenirs and Mexican handicrafts. It is also the place where you can hop on the TULUM TRAIN. It is a small tractor-pulled train which brings you to the site of the ruins. It is a 1 km walk, which most people were doing, but if it's hot or if you're tired after touring the ruins, you can hop on the train for 20 pesos or $2.00 U.S.
