Things to do in Tulum
Tulum is one of the most popular destinations in the Mexican Caribbean. With more than 10 kilometres of white sand beaches and turquoise waters, cenotes and lagoons, and a Mayan archaeological zone on the coast, once used as an astrological, ceremonial and commercial centre, it is a true paradise worth visiting at least once in your life.
Explore the ancient Mayan city of Tulum
Perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the ancient walled city of Tulum is one of the last bastions of Mayan culture. Today, it houses many buildings in a very good state of preservation, including the Castle and the Temple of the Frescoes. This archaeological site is undoubtedly a must for any traveller to the region.
Relax at Playa Paraíso
If you want to see the second largest coral reef in the world, Playa Paraíso is the place for you. You can access it by snorkelling or taking a boat ride from this magnificent white sand beach with turquoise waters, next to the ruins of Tulum.
Immerse yourself in the waters of the Gran Cenote
At a depth of 10 metres, this impressive cenote is surrounded by lush vegetation and has a small cave. If you wish, you can hire snorkelling equipment and discover the spectacular formations that form under the cold waters.
Swim with turtles in Akumal
Akumal is a small town 30 kilometres from Tulum, famous for its beach where you can swim with turtles and other marine life. Grab some goggles and a snorkel and get ready for an unforgettable experience!
