Staying at the Beach can be more expensive than staying in town. There are two roads going from the beach to Tulum town: Av. Kukulkan and Av. Coba  (marked 15 on maps). Finding a beach hotel near those intersections will limit the time it takes for you to drive (car or scooter) to town. The road that goes along the beach can be slow due to traffic.
