Tulum is a beach resort on the east coast of Mexico, in a region known as Riviera Maya, which includes the famous locations of Playa del Carmen and Cancun, all located on the Caribbean Sea.
It has an average temperature of 80 degrees centigrade, beautiful white sandy beaches and the warm Caribbean Sea, thus making it a popular destination all year around. Another reason is the friendly and genuine welcome given by the Mexican people who live and work there.
Tulum is a great resort to visit or stay, as it is one of the ‘coolest’ places in Riviera Maya.
It has many quality hotels, many of whom which have direct access to the beautiful white sandy beaches and blue Caribbean Sea. The beach stretches for as far the eyes can see and for the majority of it with only a hand full of people using it.
One of the most unique, high-quality and ‘chilled’ hotels in the whole of Tulum is ‘Nomade’. It appears to have grown out of the beach and not simply built on it. Rustic and home grown materials have been used to create buildings that are used as the restaurants, bar, relaxation zones, beach barbeque, sunbathing areas and even the hotel reception.
The customer service is not only professional and friendly, but done in such a way as to relax all the guests, which perfectly represents the theme and overall feeling of tranquility and serenity.
There are several styles of accommodation; suites, cabins, rooms, tents etc, but do not be fooled by these normal sounding names, they are far from that. The Cabins are actually situated on the beach itself, within 50 meters of the sea and have stylish and unique fitments and equipment, including balcony and hammock, thus providing stunning views of the sea and sunsets.
The tents are not like any tents many would have seen before; it is definitely ‘upper class glamping’. Fully and stylishly equipped and erected around a strong palm and bamboo support, this is camping at the ultimate level. An added feature and in a secure and private area to the rear of each one is the outdoor bathroom area. Showering in the morning looking up at the clear blue sky is an absolute delight.
To ensure that all guests have the opportunity to fully relax or learn how to, there are free early morning Yoga classes on the beach and use of bikes, so people can cycle around this spectacular looking resort.
Tulum has become a destination for Yoga lovers, as nearly every hotel offers many types of health and beauty treatments, massages and a variety of classes. There are many venues that provide Yoga and relaxation classes, plus offer alternative medicines and therapies too. The Tulum calendar of events involving these services is increasing and so it is now known as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World’.
There are a vast array of restaurants, bars and shops that are not only professionally run, but all have that same calm and relaxed atmosphere. They line the main roads, sides streets and lanes, mostly selling local cuisine, but also food from all parts of the world.
A lot of the beach areas are accessed via the Hotels, but the fully public one is also popular and is close to the main hospitality venues. It has a livelier atmosphere than the rest of Tulum, so is not for visitors looking for a quiet and relaxed time. This area is used for beach concerts and events too, so it is worth checking before a planned visit? If it is a great DJ visitors want, especially one who plays ‘sets’ from a variety of dance styles, then Ferim Lopez Tellez is the one to look out for (firstname.lastname@example.org).
One of the largest tourist attractions in the whole of the Riviera Maya region are the Mayan Ruins in Tulum. This amazing Mayan archaeological site is one of the best preserved example of how this civilization lived and is the third most visited site in the whole of Mexico. It is popular for the picturesque view of the Caribbean Sea and access to the beach.
This Mayan name for these ruins in Tulum is Zama, meaning City of Dawn, because it faces the sunrise and the Yucatan Mayan meaning is fence or wall.
The ‘Ruins’ were one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Mayans and was at its height of importance, between the 13th and 15th centuries. It actually managed to survive 70 years after the Spanish occupied Mexico.
Both coastal and land routes converged at Tulum, which made the nearby port of Coba, so important to the growth of this region. A number of artifacts found in or near the site show contacts with areas all over Mexico and Central America. Copper artifacts from the Mexican highlands have been found near the site, as have flints, ceramics, incense burners, and gold objects from all over the Yucatan. Salt and textiles were among some of the goods brought by traders to Tulum by sea that would be dispersed inland. Typical exported goods included feathers and copper objects that came from inland sources.
The ‘Ruins’ were protected on one side by the steep sea cliff and on the landward side by a wall that averaged 4 meters in height.
There are three major structures of interest at the site; El Castillo, The Temple of the Frescoes and The Temple of the Descending God. There are watch towers, showing how well defended the city was, with just five narrow gateways in the walls, two each on the north and south sides and one on the west. All of this took an enormous amount of energy and time to build, which shows how strategically important it was. Near the northern side of the wall is a small cenote that provided the city with fresh water, thus meaning it was virtually self-sufficient.
A cenote is a natural pit, sinkhole or reservoir, caused by the collapsing of the limestone that surrounded it. They are pools that fill with rain or river water and can be on the surface or in shafts. They are mainly filled with clear, cool and fresh water, which make them a great place to explore or relax. There are over 6000 in Mexico as the Yucatan Peninsula, which runs through the region, is the longest underground river and cave system in the world.
As tourist discover, there is a massive choice of cenotes to visit, so it is just deciding what type suits best; snorkeling, swimming, walking or climbing etc? The most popular are Xcaret, Cenote Chaak Tun and Xplor, as they have theme park type activities too. If it is just a small natural cenote that visitors want to experience, there are many, some only 2/3 USD to enter and some are even free?
Rio Secreto is a Mayan Underworld and is known as one of the natural wonders of the world. Visitors take a magical journey through this crystal museum of underground caves, natural waterways, stalactites and stalagmites. The history of the planet is written on the myriad of geological formations that are seen there. By taking this amazing tour by; walking, floating and swimming in its clear blue waters, it changes some visitor’s life’s forever. This place really is truly mysterious and a spectacular experience and has to be the No 1 place to visit throughout the whole Riviera Maja region.
There are many Tour Operators or Destination Management Companies throughout Latin America, but IVI DMC have a fantastic reputation, from transfers and guided tours to weddings and corporate events, they offer a full range of services.
Playa del Carmen is nearby and is a Beach Resort, but with a difference?
