9 Great Reasons To Visit Tulum, Mexico

The Most Amazing Things To Do In Tulum

With the announcement of travel restrictions easing in the next few weeks, we’re pleased to announce a new destination for My Paradise Shoot….. Mexico!!
 
It has been a tough year full of lockdowns, social distancing and video calls to see our loved ones. And another thing we’ve had to endure….. travel restrictions, postponements and cancellations. And we’re sure that you, like us, will be happy that the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter!
 
If you’re eager to get away and explore somewhere new, keep reading and you might be just as excited to be in Tulum, Mexico as we are!

No1

Visit The Chichén Itzá Mayan Ruins

Regarded as one of the “New 7 wonders of the World” and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Chichén Itzá Mayan Ruins is a sight to behold for anyone fascinated with human history, civilisation and architecture. A huge Toltec-style stone pyramid within a complex of Mayan ruins including a ball court, Temple of the Warriors and the Wall of the Skulls all built over 3,500 years ago is what awaits you. It’s certainly worth the 3 hour drive from Tulum! Make sure you arrive early to avoid the long queues. 

No2

Go Diving In Cenotes

Before my first visit to Mexico, I’d never heard of the word ‘Cenote” (pronounced cey-NO-tays, meaning “hole with water”) so I don’t blame you if you haven’t either.  In the simplest of terms, you can think of Cenotes as natures best swimming pools!  Formed when limestone bedrock collapses, groundwater pools are exposed showing off their clear (filtered by the earth), turquoise waters. These sinkholes are dotted all over Tulum and neighbouring towns making diving into one an excellent ‘must do’ activity when in Tulum!

No3

Discover Mayan Ruins of Tulum

Precariously perched on the edge of a tall cliff in the Mexican city of Quintana Roo and overlooking the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean ocean, is the tourist hotspot regarded simply as the Tulum Ruins. During its heyday and before the Spanish invaded, Tulum was a thriving port city due to its advantageous geographical location and fortified city walls. Some of the old stone structures still remain and they give us a glimpse into the past lifestyles of the Mayan people. Don’t forget your towel when you come here! Immediately South of the ruins is the picturesque beach aptly named Playa Ruinas where you’re bound to want to go for a swim.

No4

 Have A Lazy Day At The Beach

As you may well already know, Tulum is renowned for having some of the best turquoise blue waters and white sandy beaches in the world! The tough decision for you though will be which beach to choose to spend your lazy day on! My close favourites include Akumal Beach (a quiet and less commercialised slice of paradise),  Playa Ruinas (great to combine with a tour of the Tulum Ruins) and Playa Paraíso (aptly named Paradise Beach for a reason).

No5

Eat Plenty Of Mexican Food

Contrary to popular belief, Mexican cuisine involves far more than nachos, tacos and guacamole! With several restaurants and eateries dotted along its streets and beaches, experiencing authentic Mexican food in Tulum takes it up a notch and your taste buds will certainly thank you for it! Expect to find Tostadas, Enchiladas, Chilaquiles, Pozole, Tamales and so much more! (We’re sure there’ll be some Tequila on offer too!)

No6

Snorkel In Cozumel

On the outskirts of Tulum is the gorgeous island of Cozumel in the Carribean sea. With it’s white beaches, beautiful sunsets and the world’s second-longest coral reef system, Cozumels turquoise sea is the perfect location for snorkelling. Hop on board a ferry at Play del Carmen, only an hour’s drive from Tulum, and spend a few hours on the beautiful Cozumel!

No7

Swim In Kaan Luum Lagoon

Surrounded on all sides by nothing but lush rainforest and mangroves, this hidden gem in Tulum is a must see. Made up of two distinct shades of turquoise waters, the darker shade is a 75m deep Cenote (off limits to the general public), whilst the lighter shade is a knee-shoulder high lagoon suitable for swimming, snorkelling or simply just watching the world pass by.

No8

Experience Ahau Tulum

Not all beach clubs are made alike! For the ultimate, relaxed hippie vibe amidst the lush Mayan jungle and the crystalline Caribbean Sea, look no further than Ahau Tulum. With a huge art installation at its entrance, you’ll be graciously welcomed into the new world you’re about to experience. 

No9

Relax On An Hammock

You’ll find hammocks everywhere in Tulum! Ensure you take some time off to relax and watch time go by with a cocktail or two on the beach. I highly recommend the chilled out vibes on the beaches of Playa Ruinas, you’ll be glad you set aside some time for this place!
