Not only does Tulum have breathtaking white sandy beaches, emerald green waters and sun shiny breeze to sway the beautiful palm trees, it is also filled with such rich history and culture.
Tulum has some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico situated around dramatic Mayan Ruins. You can walk the ruins and take in the rich history, visit caves, do some cavern diving, fishing or just enjoy the town center shopping and the beach and sand.
The lodgings and restaurants in Tulum are fairly reasonable, although I did not over night in Tulum, most of the tourists I spoke to while on my day trip to Tulum were staying in the area and raved about how budget friendly everything was for them. I also did some research and checked the rates for hotels nearby and they are indeed reasonable, should you want to spend more than a day trip perusing Tulum. Note though, that the areas that are most reasonable are situated near the highway and near the town center.
