If you like to hike on motorways, go ahead. It's true that tulum and Playa del Carmen are amazing, but the road to go from one point to another, is not really made for hiking. It's actually quiet dangerous.

Did this hike in June and it rained for a week straight but wouldn't have it ant other way! The rain made it that more great of an experience but did make the steps up to the ruins a bit slippery but we took our time and made it!

Just did this drive and tour of the ruins 4/28/17. The drive from Playacar, which is where we stayed, was easy. 4 lane road the whole way. Rented a car and did our own thing that day. Tulum was awesome right on the coast. We hopped on the shuttle they have from the village area where you park to the ruins. Saves having to walk about a half mile each way in the heat and humidity. Doesn't take long to do the walk around the ruins, but be prepared for lots of people. Crowded to the max. Did not go to gran cenote though. Planned on it but ran out of time. This is a great day trip if you're in Playa. Worth doing for sure.
