Things to do in Tulum

Landscape view of the beach in Tulum, Mexico

Tulum biking and cenotes

Tulum is a vibrant little fisherman’s village that is easily bikeable. Take your bike out on the Tulum Beach road and stop at its cute restaurants. 

Consider biking all the way to Nativus, a lake-like cenote or any of the other famous cenotes (there are over a thousand) in the region. Some of my favorites are Cenote Calavera and Cenote Santa Cruz – make sure to bring cash as a lot of the cenotes charge a small fee that is cash-only.

Tulum town art and yoga

Take your bike out to town as well to discover the local street art and eat authentic cochinita pibil tacos at Don Honorio. When you’re done, head out to Holistika for a yoga class and an “art walk” in the jungle. 

Day Trips

Drive to Valladolid, a colorful city in the Yucatan for photos and some colonial history in the region. Pop over to Chichen Itza to see the ancient Mayan pyramids and learn about the history of the region. On your way back to Tulum shop baskets, textiles and hammocks in the town of Macario Gomez.
