Hello how do you go about getting cabs/vans to Playa and/ or Tulum from PA? We are a party of 10 staying at a house.

Thank you !!

There are two taxi unions. One for Playa Del Carmen up to and past Puerto Aventuras to Xpu Ha and one from Xpu Ha south to Tulum. Everyone has a cell phone like a gardener or a maid and someone can call you a van to take you TO places to the south like Tulum and they can often wait for you as well but this is a grey area to be aware of if the driver seems reluctant to wait.

Taxis to Playa should not be an issue and there are many vans in both towns for on demand pick up on return depending on location and time. Waiting time for drivers is usually very reasonable if you prefer to keep one handy.
