Tulum Avenue, Cancun

#49 of 402 in Things to do in Cancun
Stroll along the bustling Tulum Avenue, a central street running though the middle of town, offering you plenty of options for shopping, eating, and drinking. Despite the remoteness of the town, the main avenue abounds with places to peruse and enjoy. Consider finishing your journey at the oceanside park, where the avenue turns into a coastal road headed for the nearby ruins. Bring sunscreen and comfortable shoes, as you’ll be on your feet in the heat all day. Take care around the avenue's chaotic traffic, and always use the crossings provided.

Where to stay in Cancun

Cancun's accommodations cater to everyone from spring-break partygoers to distinguished luxury seekers. By far the most densely developed area for hotels is the boomerang-shaped Punta Nizuc-Cancun and the connecting Bulevar Kukulcan, projecting out into the sea and offering prime beach access. Among the stylish resorts, you can find expansive party hostels offering large swimming pools. If you'd like a more independent Cancun vacation, consider staying at one of the private rentals scattered along the coast.
