Tulum Archeological Site | Pre-Columbian Mayan Ruins

Tulum, the well-known Mayan ruin site is located approximately 81 miles south of Cancun. This well-preserved, ancient port is the only major Mayan ruin located directly on the coast of the Caribbean Sea and is one of the most visited ruin sites. However, Tulum is also the name of a charming small town and beach community.

Tulum Pueblo | Convenient Charming Downtown

Just down highway 307 from the ruins, the town of Tulum has everything a local or visitor needs; hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, internet cafes, ATM machines, small hospitals, dive shops, tour companies, car rental agencies and souvenir boutiques, yet it still maintains its Mexican authenticity and charm.

Tulum Beach | Bohemian Beach Burg

Tulum’s real treasures are its white sand beaches and aqua blue water. Tulum’s “hotel zone” (turn left off of 307 right before Tulum Pueblo) is lined with boutique, spa and ecological hotels. There are also rustic shops, restaurants, bars and nightspots, all designed in order to prevent the ecological problems that have occurred in larger more modern vacation spots.

Tulum has it all, culture, convenience and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it's the perfect spot for a family vacation, a relaxation retreat or a backpacking adventure.
