Tulum

The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization. A trip to Tulum takes you to the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, to the ruins of a walled city that once represented a major port and one of the last great structures ever built by the Maya. The port thrived for several centuries, and the Maya finally abandoned it when European diseases brought by Spanish conquerors caused a high fatality rate among the native population. Today, vacations in Tulum involve more than just tours of the old ruins, as the town's modern developments include hotels, stores, restaurants, and a lively street-food scene. Tulum is in Riviera Maya. In the build up to your vacation in Tulum, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Mexico online attractions planner .

Where to stay in Tulum

Most accommodations in Tulum make the most of the region's scenic coastline, offering sea views and easy beach access along the coastal Route 15. This area, known as the Hotel Zone, includes everything from basic, budget-friendly "cabanas" (beach shacks) to large-scale beach resorts. For proximity to the town's famous Mayan ruins, stay at the northern end of this coastal stretch. If you want easier access to amenities and ongoing connections, look to the township itself, located a short drive from the beach.
