Can I get a taxi from Cancun airport to Tulum?

No, you cannot simply arrive and get a taxi from the Cancun airport. Unlike other cities, it is illegal to simply hail a taxi cab at the Cancun airport and ride sharing apps like Uber are not permitted. You must reserve private transportation in advance and frankly, there are a lot of advantages to this! Save money, time, stress, reserve your private, safe private taxi from Cancun airport to Tulum with Happy Shuttle Cancun.

Can I get a taxi from the Cancun Airport to Tulum? NO, you cannot simply walk out of the Cancun airport terminal and find taxis for hire. Taking a taxi from the Cancun airport is a big risk and it is definitely NOT the best way to enjoy a stress-free travel day. You run the risk of being overcharged by shady taxi drivers who are unlicensed and uninsured. You could take the bus but the ADO bus from Cancun Airport does not run 24/7 and will only take you as far as the bus stop in downtown Tulum. From there you will need to get to your Tulum accommodations with a local taxi, running the risk of being scammed by unscrupulous drivers. If you are unfamiliar with Tulum it can be super stressful. Booking pre-paid private transportation to Tulum lets you enjoy a comfortable ride at a great price, let the experts do the driving and get you right to the door of your Tulum accommodations. The distance from the Cancun Airport to Tulum is about 130 kms and the travel time is approximately 2 hours.

Tulum is one of the hottest beach destinations in the world, a playground not only for the rich and famous but for anyone who is looking for a great escape. The natural beauty of Tulum will literally take your breath away, lush jungles, white sandy beaches and the extraordinary Mexican Caribbean turquoise sea. A visit to the Tulum Mayan ruins is a fascinating journey back in time, a great introduction to the world of the ancient Maya civilization. Tulum hotels range from shared budget hostels to luxurious private villas and boutique hotels. Tulum has quickly become a “foodie” destination, with world-class chefs and Tulum restaurants that will delight even the pickiest palates. Tulum activities are endless, scuba or snorkel the Mesoamerican Reef, dive into a sacred cenote or race down jungle trails on a powerful ATV and fly over the treetops in a Tulum extreme adventure.

MICHAEL - 9 days ago Cancun Airport Transportation to Hotel Occidental Costa Cancun

Friendly drivers and always on time.


Know what you want before booking. Snorkeling not good, drunken co-ed vibe.
Trusted Customer - 11 days ago Cancun Catamaran Tour

The service was just fine. Everyone was very nice. However, it was definitely a "drunken co-ed" vibe, and that was just not what we were looking for. Loud music, and a guy dressed up in a bra and wig pouring shots into people's mouths on the way back. That's not our vibe, but if that's what you're looking for... The sea was quite choppy where we were let out to snorkel. Obviously, they can't control that, but it was so rough you really couldn't see anything. We were quite rushed, and they only provided masks and snorkels, no fins (they did provide life vests). I had my own equipment, including fins, and I actually had to help a lady who was starting to panic, as she was swallowing. I had to grab her and tow her in as the guides were yelling at us to hurry up. Finally a guide came back and helped. Not a super great experience. The beach club was ok. The food was mediocre, but that's to be expected. The beach area was crowded and smelled of raw sewage.
