5 Incredible Things to Do in Tulum, Mexico

The Boutique Adventurer

On the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula lies the gorgeous seaside town of Tulum, one of the last cities built and inhabited by the mighty Mayan people.

Tulum was once a quiet beach town, but in recent years it has become a thriving tourism hotspot and one of the best resort towns in Mexico.


Public Beaches

Tulum is said to have some of the best beaches in Mexico, with long stretches of silky-smooth white sand and crystal clear blue waters.


Visit A Cenote

Thousands of cenotes can be found across the tropical jungle forests of Yucatan. Freshwater cenotes are the entrance to a vast number of underground waterways waiting to be explored.


Tulum Pueblo

If you want to get a taste of how the locals live, then Pueblo is the right place to go. This part of town is also full of markets, stalls, and art galleries waiting to be explored.
