The ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum, located in a dramatic cliff-top setting, overlooking the jade-blue Caribbean sea and secluded sandy white beach below, make this one of the most visited attractions in the Mayan Riviera.
The ruins are an easy half day excursion from Cancun, but if you’re looking for a laid-back, bohemian vibe, eco-friendly boutique hotels, fresh organic food in open-air rustic restaurants, then a Tulum holiday is the perfect escape, away from the busier resorts.
Holidays in Tulum can be spent exploring nearby archaeological sites – like the ruins of Cobá and the temples of the descending god, learning about local ecosystems at the Reserva de la Biosfera Sian Ka’an, fly-fishing, scuba-diving, snorkelling or diving in the “cenotes” (underground freshwater pools).
