From Cancun International Airport:
When we travel, we personally use, and many of our guests have had great luck with Brasil Transfers (with an “s”, www.brasiltransfers.com). It is easily the most convenient way to get here (1 hr and 40 mins from door to door) their site has an instant chat feature to give you prompt replies and simplify the process. Their 1 way trips go for 90 US and roundtrip for 165 US. The owners, Memo and Jacky are very helpful and both speak fluent Spanish and English.
ADO buses run regularly to Tulum, and the ride will take about 2 hours, most times with an additional stop in Playa del Carmen. From the Tulum bus station, take a taxi to Las Palmas Maya at KM 8.5.
Rental cars are also available, as are taxis, although the latter are a more expensive option.
From Playa del Carmen:
Buses from Playa generally run fairly regularly, every hour or so. The bus station is at the southern end of 5th Avenue. For more info and schedules, please check the website for the ADO bus line.
Once you reach downtown Tulum and/or the bus station, a taxi can take you to Las Palmas Maya. Since the recent change in ownership and name, some drivers may not be familiar with our exact location, so just tell them “KM 8.5, la playa, frente OM hotel!”
Below is a map that shows Las Palmas Maya’s location in Tulum. Please note, the horizontal line near the top is Highway 307, which runs from Cancun to Tulum (Town-Pueblo) to Chetumal. Our hotel can be found on Beach Road (Boca-Paila / Punta Allen Road), which begins at Tulum’s only traffic signal-there’s a 7-11 at the corner. When coming from Cancun, you’ll make a left at the stoplight while guests arriving from Chetumal, will want to make a right. Feel free to click the image below for a larger, printable version of the map, along with some of our favorite restaurants and things to do while visiting. You will also see a Google map below of our location and surrounding area.
Las Palmas Maya is located at KM 8.5 Beach Road (Carretera Tulum – Boca Paila)
