Why Go

Like a laid-back Cancun for the yoga set, Tulum is a paradise for those looking for quiet along the Mayan Riviera. The white sand beach stretches on forever, lined with several upscale but casual hotels. While Tulum isn't cheap anymore, its hippie vibe still reigns. Drink organic smoothies, stay at a nudist resort, commune with nature. Away from the beach, Tulum Pueblo offers a small strip of necessities, as well as good shopping and dining options. While many folks day trip here from Cancun or Playa del Carmen for the spectacular oceanfront ruins, those who stay here enjoy the tranquil mornings on the beach, when it's sometimes just you, a few fishermen heading out to catch your dinner, and a class of people stretched out in cobra pose.

This little stretch of the Yucatán feels like a slice of Bali in Mexico. Far superior to anything further north but, unfortunately, it is also being assaulted by a gringo invasion.

I can't wait to get back to Tulum and explore all it has to offer. I would love to stay for 8-10 days in this area to really explore! The ruins were beautiful, bit we missed out on the cenotes and beaches. We were so sick from a flu outbreak on our cruise that the day was so miserable with the kids. It sucked all the life out me with just the single ride from Cozumel. The experience was still a beautiful one, although rushed. When we come back we will do isle holbox & Tulum and stay at the Andaz treehouse hotel!

The town of Tulum is a hipster, foodie, and artistic town with a modern bohemian flair. Though the vibe is difficult to describe, the night life, dining and shopping are exceptional in this quaint little town. The Artists and musicians that frequent Tulum give it an unconventional culture that, unless experienced first hand, is very difficult to depict.

Learn about Mayan history while you visit the ruins at Tulum, once a major trading port in the last millennia

A pretty magical and mystique walled city built by the Mayans, its archaeological sites are incredibly well preserved. Take a break from the beach to visit El Castillo, the Temple of the Frescoes, and the Temple of the Descending God. Explore an underground river under a canopy of stalactites in the sacred caverns of LabnaHa Eco Park, or drive into Cenote Dos Ojos to snorkel inside of caves in the middle of the Forest.

Tulum definitely has the most beautiful beaches in Riviera Maya. However, it is not for everyone. It has a very laid back and hippie vibe, the area where the hotels are located doesn't have electrical power or running water, most places have their own generators and water wells, but some don't. The walkways on the hotels and the city are not paved, so you will have sand on your feet 24/7, but if you're up to stand that for the most beautiful waters and sights of Mexico, then you should definitely go.

If you are in this area you MUST grab some lunch or dinner at El Tabano near the beach. It was amazing!!! Cash only but worth every penny!

The only Mayan ruins located right along the coastline! So impressive and informative! Loved my time here! I highly recommend stopping and checking them out if you find yourself in this part of Mexico.
