Covid Safety in Tulum

• Does Mexico make you quarantine when you travel?

No — There’s no quarantine period upon arrival as of June 2021, though that could change at any time.

• Will there be temperature checks in Tulum, Mexico?

Once you arrive, authorities in the airport will likely take your temperature at some point before you can leave the airport. Do note that if you have an elevated temperature above 99.5°F (37.5°C), you’ll likely be denied entry.

After leaving the airport, you’ll notice temperature checks at most (if not all) places, with the exception of simply laying on the beach. As with the airport, those with an elevated temperature above 99.5°F (37.5°C), you’ll likely be denied entry.

• Do I need to wear a mask in Tulum?

In Tulum and Quintana Roo state, Mexico, masks are legally required in all public spaces, both indoors and outdoors. Though legally required, not all places in Tulum enforce masks. However, legally, they must be worn everywhere in Tulum — even outdoors — except when eating, drinking and swimming.

😷 Tulum Travel Tip: In Tulum Town (AKA Downtown Tulum), on Tulum Beach, and at outdoor restaurants and bars, many people go mask-free. This is technically illegal, so have a mask in your bag at all times, should you need to quickly put it on.

What’s open in Tulum right now?

Are Tulum Ruins open?

As of May 9, 2021, the Tulum Ruins are closed indefinitely. The other Mayan ruins near Tulum — Chichen Itza and Coba — are open, but at limited capacity, and some areas normally open are currently roped off. At Coba, guests are not allowed to climb the pyramids, as there’s no way to social distance at the top.

Chichen Itza and Coba both require a temperature check at the entrance, a mask to be worn at all times and for guests to practice social distance during your visit.

Tulum Ruins: If you head to the Tulum Beach Road, and turn left, you’ll end up at the Archeological Zone of Tulum-Mayan Port City Ruins, AKA the Tulum Ruins. This smaller site is very conveniently located, and most Tulum travelers plan for a visit these beautiful ruins overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Chichen Itza: One of the Seven Wonders of the World! Located about two hours from Tulum, you can drive there with your rental car, take the ADO bus from Downtown Tulum, or opt for this Chichen Itza, Cenote, and Valladolid Tour group tour.

Coba: Coba is unique in that it’s more of a whole Mayan city, versus a Mayan pyramid site. It is located about an hour from Tulum, deep in the jungle (so don’t forget your eco-friendly bug spray 🦟). If you’re having to choose Chichen Itza vs Coba, many opt for Coba to avoid the crowds at Chichen Itza.

Tulum Ruins Tours

Playa Ruinas, AKA Playita Tortugas, the beach right beneath the Tulum Ruins. There is a staircase at the site you can take down to the beach after touring the Tulum Ruins.

Are Tulum Beaches open?

Yes — All Tulum beaches are open. When you visit, make sure to head to all of the best Tulum, Mexico beaches: Playa Paraiso, Playa Pescadores, Playa Ruinas (AKA Playita Tortugas, the beach cove beneath the Tulum Ruins), and Las Palmas.

For a unique experience, head to Kaan Luum Lagoon, the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and the Tulum Cenotes, in addition to the beaches.

Best Beach Clubs in Tulum

For the beaches, you can just head there with your beach bag and a towel. However, for many, no visit to Tulum is complete without checking out the beach clubs in Tulum. To enjoy the use of a chair, bed, or cabana, pools, showers, food/drink service, etc., here’s a list of Tulum’s best beach clubs.

Tulum beach clubs cost about $1,000 pesos ($50USD) to enter because they have a food/beverage “minimum spend.”

This basically means you’re pre-paying your $50USD tab — and you’re allowed to use the resort facilities — so think of the entrance cost as a down payment on food and drinks.

Are Tulum Cenotes open?

Yes — The Tulum cenotes are all open; however, most of them are at limited capacity, so plan to visit your must see Tulum cenotes early in the day. Depending on the crowd level, some many also enforce time limits, ie. you can only swim for one hour.

Tulum has so many cenotes to see within just minutes of downtown. The six best Tulum cenotes below are located just off Highway 109, all within 25 minutes or less of Tulum Town (Downtown Tulum). You could ride your bike, hire a taxi or drive your rental car, but don’t walk to these Tulum cenotes.

🐠Tulum Travel Tip: If this will be your first visit to a cenote, check out this Cenote FAQ to ensure you’re a responsible visitor.

TULUM Cenote TOURS

What is a cenote?

To make a long story short, cenotes (pronounced sen-no-tays) are basically underwater sinkholes containing crystal-clear, blue water. They are only found in a few places on Earth, with the largest concentration in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, where there are about 6,000 cenotes.

We can see and swim in them because the limestone once covering the water has collapsed and/or eroded throughout Earth’s existence, exposing the water beneath. Cenotes have freshwater, and a refreshing 75°F (24°F) year-round temperature.

Best Tulum Cenotes

Gran Cenote: Gran Cenote and Cenote Calavera are the two most instagrammable cenotes in Tulum. Gran Cenote, meaning “big cenote,” is a larger site with several cenotes that meander along the jungle floor, connected to one another by wooden walkways.

Cenote Calavera: Cenote Calavera has three holes you can jump in to access the water below. This cool natural phenomenon is super popular, so try and arrive early to beat the crowds.

Cenote Tankah/Cenote Car Wash: These two are right next to one another, and make a great combo trip. Cenote Tankah is well known as the only Tulum cenote that has a zipline, perfect for adventure-seekers! Cenote Car Wash (AKA Cenote Aktun Ha) has a much more chill, lagoon vibe.

Cenote Zacil-Ha: This is an open, swimming pool-style cenote. Cenote Zacil-Ha has plenty of nice onsite amenities like covered/shaded areas, bathrooms and snacks for sale.

Cenote Santa Cruz Tulum: This one is just stunning, and also very conducive to hosting visitors with onsite bathrooms, shaded palapas, grassy areas to relax in, and more.

Is Tulum Safe?

Short answer: Yes! Aside from hurricanes, drinking too much, sunburns and petty crime, Tulum is a safe place to travel solo and with a group.

Longer answer: Safety is a tricky subject — not just in Tulum, but everywhere — and that’s because safety is a feeling, not a fact. However, as a general rule, Tulum and the Yucatan Peninsula are considered quite safe for visitors.

You’ll want to, of course, follow the 10 General Travel Safety Tips below to err on the side of caution. However, these are the same safety measures you’d follow when traveling anywhere on Earth, and they should suffice in Tulum, Mexico.

10 General Travel Safety Tips
  1. Don’t walk home alone at night if you can help it; take a taxi or ride your bike in Tulum.
  2. Always listen to your intuition because your intuition is always right.
  3. If you get a sketchy or uneasy feeling about a person or place, get away from that person or place immediately. If you feel you’re in danger, don’t worry about making a kind, nice, or politically correct exit from a creepy person or bad situation — Just get away ASAP.
  4. Don’t keep your phone, keys, wallet, passport, or anything valuable in your back pocket.
  5. Learn some basic Spanish. If you can’t learn it, save this infographic as an image on your phone so you have something to use even if you’re off-WiFi.
  6. Take all of your belongings into the bathroom with you, rather than asking a cafe/bar neighbor to watch your things.
  7. Speaking of bar neighbors, don’t take drinks from strangers and/or leave your drink unattended near one.
  8. Don’t wear flashy clothes, expensive jewelry, designer sunglasses, etc.
  9. Keep some cash in your pocket so you don’t have to pull your whole wallet out every time you need to pay.
  10. This should be a no brainer since you’re traveling during a pandemic, but get Travel Insurance!
Register for the STEP Program

Make sure you enroll in the FREE STEP Program before your trip. The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, or STEP, allows U.S. citizens traveling to Mexico to document your trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. In Tulum, that’s the Consular Agency in Playa del Carmen.

After you’ve registered, the U.S. Embassy or Consulate can contact you in the event of an emergency, including natural disasters, civil unrest, etc. STEP can also put you in touch with your family and friends back home, in the event of an emergency while abroad.

IS IT SAFE TO TRAVEL TO Tulum, MEXICO RIGHT NOW?

This answer depends on who you ask!

The World Travel & Tourism Council’s global travel safety program, Safe Travels, has certified all of Mexico’s big travel destinations, including Playa del Carmen, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta, as safe for travel. To qualify for this program, countries must follow rigorous cleaning and hygiene protocols.

However, the U.S. State Department and the CDC say to reconsider travel to Mexico, for now. While many aren’t following that advice, if you are going to visit Tulum during Covid, please travel responsibly and follow all Tulum Covid-19 safety measures.

Tulum Travel FAQ

1. Do I need a visa for Mexico?

No — U.S. passport holders don’t need a visa to travel to Mexico. This is another reason why Mexico is one of the best travel destinations from the U.S. When you arrive in Mexico and go through the Immigration line, you’ll receive your FMM tourist card. Don’t lose your FMM; you’ll need to give it back to when leaving the country. 

2. What’s the best time to visit Tulum?

Weather-wise, fall/winter is the best time to visit Tulum. It is technically the busy season in Tulum, though because of Covid, you’ll be able to get some great deals on flights and accommodations, and stretch your dollar further (for now!).

Tulum Weather

3. What do I pack for Tulum?

Tulum Mexico, and the Yucatan Peninsula, have a tropical climate. As you can see by the average yearly Tulum weather chart above, this part of Mexico is hot (and humid 😥) for most of the year, so definitely pack a LifeStraw Filterable Water Bottle.

Mosquitoes are also an issue, so don’t forget your eco-friendly bug spray, and bring reef-safe sunscreen so you practice responsible tourism in Mexico. If you’re planning to drink a lot, these Anti-Hangover Pills are a lifesaver (thank me later!).

Tulum Packing List: Tropical sundresses, Boho chic attire, Bathing suits, Flowy maxi dresses, Kimonos, Shorts, Jumpers, Cover-ups, Cute/comfy Sandals, Water shoes for cenotes, Sunglasses, Sun hat, Hair scarves, Beach bag.

6. What’s the closest airport to Tulum?

To travel to Tulum, Mexico, you’ll fly into Cancun International Airport (code: CUN). It is the closest airport to Tulum, at about 75-miles away.

From Cancun Airport, you can rent a car, hire a private or shared shuttle or take the ADO bus to Tulum. Keep scrolling for info on all three options.

This drive is 1.5 hours, by taking Carretera Cancun-Chetumal (Highway 307) south — which will take you straight into Tulum.

💸 Tulum Travel Tip: Take out some cash at a Cancun Airport ATM! Cash is king in Mexico and Tulum, where many places are cash only.

Highway 307/Carretera Cancun-Chetumal, goes straight from the Cancun Airport to Tulum.

7. How Do I get from Cancun to Tulum?

Is there Uber in Cancun & Tulum?

Wondering if you can take Uber from Cancun to Tulum? Unfortunately, no, at this time Uber is not legal anywhere in Quintana Roo state. This also means there’s no Uber in Tulum itself, though there are plenty of taxis — just make sure you have cash/pesos to pay.

🚕💨 Tulum Travel Tip: When taking a taxi in Mexico, you negotiate and agree on the fare before entering the taxi.

Cancun to Tulum Airport Shuttle


Cancun Car Rental

The easiest, most convenient way to travel from Cancun to Tulum? A rental car, of course. Discover Cars is a great option, with several Cancun Airport rental car options.

The Cancun Airport is the best place to rent a car because all the big name companies have locations there — and you only want to use a reputable company.

🚗💨 12 Useful Mexico Driving Tips

1. Rent with a reputable company! As they say, “you get what you pay for.” For a reliable Cancun car rental company, go with Discover Cars.

2. Avoid driving at night. When you live in Mexico long enough, you start to realize many people simply avoid driving at night, if they can. If you do drive at night, stick to only main roads and highways.

3. Always use the couta, or toll, roads. Yes, they cost money, but they are much better maintained and generally considered safer. Pro tip: Bring cash for the tolls.

4. Download an offline map. Your signal will go in and out as you travel through rural areas of the Yucatan Peninsula, so download an offline map from Google or Maps.Me. You’ll also want to download some podcasts and music while you’re getting that map.

5. Speed limit signs are in kilometers per hour, not miles per hour. You don’t have to worry about conversion math here; just make sure the speed limit sign number matches your speedometer number.

6. Do not use your cell phone while you’re driving. Not only is this unsafe, it is also illegal. In fact, even having your phone in your hand is a ticket-able offense, so try not to even hold your phone while driving.

7. The rumors are true about the cops expecting bribes. If the cops pull you over, and they only will if you give them a reason to, they will expect a cash “payment” in exchange for not ticketing you.

8. Mexican roads are notorious for their abundant amount of topes (speed bumps). Make sure you keep your eyes on the road, as topes don’t always have signs alerting you to them.

9. Mexico’s gas stations are not self-serve. When you stop for gas, an attendant will pump it for you and take your payment. These people don’t actually work for the gas station, and live off tips. When they finish, it’s customary to tip them at least $10-20 pesos ($0.50-$1).

10. Mexico’s traffic lights go from green to yellow, to flashing yellow for a few seconds, to finally, a red light.

11. Make sure you purchase Mexican car insurance. You are generally not covered in any way through your U.S. company when you drive in any other country.

12. Most travel insurance policies cover driving. In case you’re wondering Should I get travel insurance for Mexico?… The answer is hell yes! There’s a whole page of this website dedicated to travel insurance, because it’s just that important — maybe even more so when traveling during the pandemic.


Cancun to Tulum Bus

If you’re traveling to Tulum on a budget, the bus is the cheapest way to get to from Cancun to Tulum.

The largest bus company in Mexico is ADO, and you can take one straight from Cancun Airport to the main bus station in Downtown Tulum. Prices will vary, should generally be less than $300 pesos ($15USD) for a one-way ticket, which you can buy online here or at the airport.

FINAL THOUGHTS: TULUM, MEXICO TRAVEL IN COVID

Writing about travel during a global pandemic is a grey area, to say the least. However, the fact remains that Tulum is legally open for travel — whether I wrote this article or not. In fact, Mexico never fully “closed,” and Tulum has been welcoming tourists since June 2020.

You might be wondering why it has been open for so long, when most places were still closed. Great question; and the answer is of course, tourism dollars.

Quintana Roo state, home to Tulum, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Bacalar Lagoon, Holbox Island, etc., is nearly a 100% tourism-based economy, and the Mexican powers-that-be decided not to cut off their main economic artery.

Now, I’m in no way saying you should/should not travel to Tulum during Covid — that is a moral question for yourself. What I will say is that you legally can take a Tulum trip, and I’d imagine Tulum’s small business owners and locals would love to accept tourism dollars from responsible, safe travelers.

For those in the U.S. planning to travel during Covid, and just a handful of countries allowing you unrestricted entry, Mexico is very attractive for travel right now. However, keep in mind travel is a privilege, and for those traveling to Tulum, do so safely, legally, responsibly and respectfully.

      Hi Taylor: You are so right…. “for better or worse” is the correct phrase. I am trying to tread lightly, because it’s no secret that Mexico travel right now can have negative outcomes, but I hope anyone traveling will do so in an ethical way, and follow all laws.

While I’m not ready to travel yet, mostly because although I would be able to leave Canada it would be difficult getting back in without quarantining, if this goes on much longer I might have to think about doing something.

    Beautiful, thorough, and informative post. Also, perfect timing because my husband and I were recently discussing a possible trip to Tulum during the winter. I think I would want to stay on the beach , since I see beach so rarely living in Kentucky. Also the cenotes were very interesting. I did not know about them. They look beautiful. Definitely will visit a few. Of course need to go to Chitchen Iza too. Thanks for all the great tips!!
