Enjoy a Beach Day
Tulum is world-famous for its beautiful white-sand beaches and turquoise blue waters, so the main activity here is to enjoy them.
Going to a beach club by sea and spending the day sipping cocktails, enjoying good food, and just letting yourself be carried away by the pleasant Caribbean atmosphere with music and good vibes is what we locals know as a "Beach Day" experience. It's what we love to do in this beautiful paradise and what anyone who visits us should also experience.
One of the best things to do in Tulum is to explore the ancient ruins. The area is home to some of the best-preserved Maya ruins in all of Mexico.
First, we have the ruins at Tulum, which are located on a spectacular cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, and they include a range of well-preserved buildings, from temples to palaces. Cobá is another must-see site, as it is home to the tallest Mayan pyramid in Mexico. And finally, no trip to the Riviera Maya would be complete without visiting the awe-inspiring ruins of Chichén Itzá, one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World”.
Tulum is an incredible place to go snorkeling. The water is crystal clear, and the reefs are teeming with colorful fish. Actually, in Riviera Maya lies the second biggest reef on Earth. Amazing!
Snorkeling is a great way to get up close and personal with the underwater world, and it’s an activity that everyone can enjoy. So, whether you're a seasoned snorkeler or you've never even put on a pair of flippers, Tulum is the perfect place to discover the wonders of the aquatic world.
One of the unique and exhilarating experiences in Riviera Maya is swimming in cenotes and underground rivers. Cenotes are natural sinkholes fed by the filtration of rain and by the currents of underground rivers. They are found throughout Riviera Maya, and each one offers a different and unforgettable experience. Swimming in these crystal-clear waters is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you should not miss.
Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is one of the largest protected areas in Mexico. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and for a good reason, as it is home to an incredible variety of plant and animal life.
Here you can explore miles of pristine beaches, mangrove forests, coral reefs, and even Mayan ruins. There are also opportunities to go birdwatching, snorkeling, and kayaking. Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve has something to offer everyone.
