Tulum is one of my favorite beach vacation destinations.  It's small enough to feel quaint and relaxed but, it's big enough to have plenty to do.  The food is sourced locally and many places cater to the vegan crowd.  It's a place where just about anyone can be happy.  You can go alone for a detox on the beach or a romantic getaway with your S.O. filled with guac and mezcal.






Be Tulum Spa Pamper yourself with a trip to Be Tulum's magical Spa.  Your treatment will start with healing water therapy in the spa's sauna and pools.  You will then be taken to your treatment hut which is adorned with candles, beautiful linens, and copal incense.  The spa has its own rooftop garden where it grows traditional mayan herbs and plants to use during treatments.

Cenote Spanish for a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath, these natural pools are much more beautiful than they sound.  You can grab a bike and see them on your own or see several with a guide.

Biking  Several hotels rent bikes even if you aren't staying there.  Spend an afternoon on a bike exploring the beach area but make sure you get a bike basket to bring back all of your treasures.


Tulum is about 1.5 hours by car from Cancun airport.  I recommend booking a car  in advance online to take you to your hotel.
