Hotel or House in Tulum?

Jump to last reply

My family is considering going to Tulum over the Christmas holiday season. There will be ten of us, four of which are under the age of ten. None of us speak Spanish or have ever been to the area before. We want to go somewhere with a warm beach and Tulum seemed to be an interesting area with unique attractions and not as commercialized as Cancun.

I've been researching renting a house for the week we will be there to save on lodging costs and to give us a communal area to be together. I'm wondering though if we'll encounter too many problems given our lack of language and regional knowledge. Also, my mother is concerned about the safety factor of not being in a resort. Is this something to consider?

thank you!
