The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization.
Venture out of the city with trips to Playa del Carmen (Xcaret, Gaston Charo Art Gallery Playa del Carmen, &more). There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Tulum Archaeological Site, take in panoramic vistas at Tulum Tower, Head underground at Parque De Cenotes Yax-Muul, and stroll through LabnaHa Cenotes & Eco Park.

To see maps, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Tulum trip itinerary planning website.

Well-preserved ruins and stunning white-sand beaches make for memorable Riviera Maya vacations, though this coastal area also features a number of modern cities ideal for soaking up some local culture and learning about Mexican cuisine. Stretching for approximately 100 km (60 mi) along the Caribbean coastline, this region serves as one of the world's most popular vacation destinations, known for containing big-name resorts like Playa del Carmen and Cancun. If you get tired of sun and sand, enrich your Riviera Maya sightseeing experience by visiting the area's eco-archaeological theme parks, which preserve swathes of wilderness and encompasses restored structures from the Mayan period.
