What is more expensive Tulum or Playa del Carmen?


Tulum and Playa del Carmen, located in the Riviera Maya, are two of the favorite destinations of the thousands of travelers who arrive in Quintana Roo every day. Each one with its particular charm and beaches, cenotes and archaeological zones attractive for tourism.

This last year, these tourist sites began to recover after a difficult period as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, where the hotel and restaurant sector was one of the most affected. But when sanitary restrictions are lifted, tourists once again turn to look at the beaches of the Caribbean Sea.

Being the only archaeological zone that sits on the edge of a cliff, Tulum is one of the favorite spots for lovers of ecotourism and relaxation trips, as it is the gateway to the Sian Ka’ Biosphere Reserve ecosystem, one of the most exuberant on the planet that includes beaches, coral reefs, an abundant tropical jungle, dunes and cenotes.

Although it has also become a luxury destination, with hotels and restaurants, where the prices for accommodation and food are high and for much more demanding clients. However, there are other options for more adventurous tourists with hostels and public services for ‘backpackers’.

In the case of Playa del Carmen, the beaches, Fifth Avenue and nightlife are the main attractions for visitors, which is also much kinder on the wallet, as it has cheaper options to stay, eat and go out to party.

In addition, Playa del Carmen is a destination that is located halfway, near Cancun and Tulum, so by being there you can visit both places and enjoy what each of these places offers.
