How to Get a Tulum Taxi
Tulum taxis can be quite easy, or exceedingly difficult to find.
Catching a Tulum taxi depends primarily on the pickup locations and times. If you are downtown or on the beach road hotel zone, "catching a taxi" is easy because drivers regularly cruise these areas - day and night. You simply wave at a taxi-they will pick you up. In those areas you can expect to be picked right away, or typically within 10 minutes. After hours you may have to wait longer for a taxi, but those beach and town zones will be the easiest areas to find a ride on the streets. A Taxi from Cancun to Tulum or back to the airport, that's another story.
Need a taxi to Tulum from the Cancun airport? Want to go to Playa del Carmen, Coba ruins, Chichen-Itza, cenotes, nearby towns, or excursions at a specific time at fair guaranteed rate?
Maybe your AirBnB is in the jungle! That is a bit more challenging & where we make it happen! Your other options are to start walking towards those areas on a main ave and you may get picked up.
