Top 7 things to do in Tulum

Visit Tulum for its combination of ancient history and natural wonder. Wake up in a resort on an endless stretch of sand, spend the day exploring the best-preserved coastal Mayan ruins, and beat the heat by snorkeling in the region’s underwater cave systems.

Mayan Ruins of Tulum

The coastal ruins in Tulum are the last ruins the Mayans built and the best preserved today. Take a break from the beach and visit early before the crowds and high sun arrive.

Cenotes Dos Ojos

The cavernous scuba diving at Cenotes Dos Ojos is incomparable. The Mayans called the caves “sacred wells” because of the magical views under the clear Riviera Maya.

Cenotes Sac Actun

Located a bit further out from Tulum, it is a natural paradise of underwater caves. Take a guided tour for an inside scoop on this hidden gem.

Gran Cenote

Great for families, animal lovers can swim with countless colorful fish and friendly turtles in the mild clear waters of the Gran Cenote.

Cenote Esqueleto

Do not be fooled by its small tucked away entrance, this giant scuba diving cave is called the Temple of Doom because swimming in the halocline makes an eerie “fog.”

Las Pinturas

Named for the stucco paintings on the wall, this ancient 85-foot pyramid was a sacred Mayan temple.

Playa Paraiso

Sip a piña colada with the powdery white sand and electric blue waters of the best beaches in Mexico.

How to get there?

It may be easiest to rent a car after landing at the airport in Cancun, not to mention the benefit of a breezy 90-minute coastal highway drive. If you’re on a budget, take a bus to Playa del Carmen and transfer to a second bus to Tulum for under $20 total.

How many days to spend in Tulum?

Day trips from Cancun are not advisable—there is simply too much to see and do. Give yourself at least three nights to explore.
