Things to do in  Tulum

Welcome to Tulum

Millenia-old Mayan ruins perch dramatically on cliffs that overlook the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea in Tulum, a Mexican beach destination that exemplifies the Yucatan’s cultural heritage and tropical beauty. Come for the ruins—best explored on a day trip that combines the archeological zone with nearby cenotes, coral reefs, or the cave networks of Rio Secreto—and stay for more of the top things to do in Tulum, including tequila tasting, taco eating, and relaxing on the white-sand beaches lapped by the warm waters of the Caribbean.

Mayan Ruins of Coba (Zona Arqueológica de Cobá)

star-4.55,094
In the heart of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula lie the ruins of Coba (Zona Arqueológica de Cobá), an ancient Maya city considered to be one of the most important settlements in Mesoamerican history. During its peak between AD 500 and 900, Coba housed 50,000 residents and was the central terminus for the complex Maya system of roadways. The jungle site is still being excavated, but visitors can experience the already discovered remains of thesesacbes, or stone causeways, as well as a number of engraved and sculpted monuments.More

The natural pool is surrounded by a boardwalk where you can take photos in the light that filters from above before venturing into the water to swim, snorkel, or scuba dive.More

Muyil

Muyil

Stretching along the banks of a coastal lagoon, the Maya ruins of Muyil are undeniably photogenic and less visited than the nearby sites of Tulum and Coba. Dominated by the steep-walled, 56-foot-tall (17-meter-tall) El Castillo, one of the region’s tallest pyramids, the Muyil ruins are an example of Peten architecture, similar to Tikal in Guatemala.More
