Great beaches? Check. Great food? Check. Great shopping? Check. Amazing hotels, amazing activities ... The list goes on. Tulum just might be the most perfect place on earth. Have a look at our favorite places to eat, sleep, shop and the best things to do. And then get ready to book your trip, because it really is that good.


A few tips on Tulum:

  • The only footwear you need are flip flops. Sand is everywhere and heels are dumb, so are regular sandals. Sneakers aren't a bad idea if you're planning to exercise. 
  • While most places use filtered water,  I  would say bottled is still best. Even for brushing your teeth.
  • Bring small unmarked bills with you. Seriously: cash is king, and every cab ride seems to cost about $7. You'll be hard-pressed to find someone to give you change, so the more singles you have, the cheaper things will be.
  • The other thing is, you have a long ride from the Cancun Airport to Tulum. But it's shorter if you have your driver stop at the 7-11 right outside of the airport for beers and chiccarones. Yes, really.
