Tulum is a great place to visit, especially if you are traveling to Mexico for the first time. It's very easy to reach coming from Cancun. Here you'll be far enough away from those enormous tourist resorts to enjoy this destination of beaches, nature and ancient culture. The Quintana Roo hotel in Tulum lies in the middle of the Mayan jungle, very close to the beach, to offer you a place of rest and relaxation while opening the doors to all the wonders of the region.
Wondering about what you can do in Tulum? This place has it all; beautiful beach landscapes with Mayan ruins, ancient jungles with incredible beauty and natural diversity, modern cuisine with ancestral flavors, and hidden gems like the important archaeological sites and impressive underwater caves in the depths of the cenotes and lagoons. The average temperature of Tulum is 27°C with many sunny days throughout the year for you to enjoy to the fullest.
With about 20,000 inhabitants and only 3 kilometers away from the beach, Tulum is full of surprises. Restaurants, bars and cafés for every taste, beautiful Mayan handicrafts and colorful clothing are found on every corner. And as in any small town, you’ll have access to banks, pharmacies, car rental services, medical services, supermarkets and shops.
Ask for a good restaurant and we guarantee you will not be disappointed. You can start with our own Restaurante Casa Tulum and gradually discover the delights of the Yucatan cuisine such as seafood cocktails, tacos, mole, enchiladas, delicious vegetarian dishes, wild boar and turkey stews, ceviche, and the best of international cuisine. In the evening, many places begin the party with live music and a good cocktail to guarantee a night of fun to the rhythms of the Caribbean.
One of the first things you'll want to do when you arrive to Tulum is visit the beach. We recommend going to the Tulum Beach for its crystal clear water and famous ruins on steep cliffs. Or visit Paradise Beach with its spectacular white sand, palm trees and a sea of turquoise waters. The Sian Ka'an beach, located in the biosphere of the same name, offers endless beaches and lots of marine fauna to see when taking a boat trip. If the beaches here end up becoming the only thing you do on your list, it’s understandable. It’s hard to resist the incredible beauty of the Tulum beaches.
This is not your typical beach destination where beaches of fine sand and rows of palm trees are the main attraction. Rather than just that, Tulum leaves visitors awestruck with its important historical heritage of ancient Mesoamerican civilizations. Plan a tour to the Mayan ruins of Tulum where you can visit The Castle, Temple of the Wind God, Temple of the Descending God, or even the Muyil Archaeological Zone that is 20 Km further away, and the Cobá Pyramid that is 50 Km away. Surely, there is a good reason that the Anthropology Institute of Mexico had for naming Tulum as the “most emblematic site on the coast of Quintana Roo”. Don’t miss out!
There is never a lack of fun in Tulum and one of the most exciting places that you’ll always remember is the Xel- Há Park. This place offers fun for the entire family. Here you can enjoy ecological attractions, water activities and snorkeling amidst hundreds of colorful fish, or you can go up the imposing Mirador lighthouse and take a selfie before launching yourself back into the water by going down its spiral slide. Explore caves, take a boat ride along the rivers, discover caves and ancient Mayan walls, explore the cenotes, ride a bicycle through the jungle and check out the children’s area for more activities.
For those who like thrills, Tulum offers numerous activities covering varied levels of experience and difficulty, ranging from scuba diving, underwater cave exploration, surfing, kite surfing, paddle surfing, mountain biking, trips to see marine fauna, specialized tours to enter the sacred cenotes, and even swimming with turtles! Come stay in our hotel in Tulum, Mexico and venture to explore a little more by visiting Akumal; another area of beautiful white sandy beaches, coral reefs, natural parks and underground rivers. We will be waiting for you!
