A few hours south of Cancun lies Tulum Beach, a beautiful stop on the Mayan Riviera. With its white sand and turquoise waters, it is easy to see why this place is so popular with holidaymakers. However, there is more to Tulum than its looks. The beach is also home to a number of historical ruins, including the well-preserved remains of an ancient Mayan temple. Visitors can explore the temple and learn about the culture that once flourished here. Moreover, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy, from swimming and sunbathing to windsurfing and kayaking. Whether you’re looking for history or just a place to relax, Tulum Beach is sure to please.


From Tulum Pueblo, you can get to Tulum Beach by bike or car; walking is too far.

2. Visit Cenotes

Cenotes tulum

Cenotes are natural underground pools created when rainwater dissolves limestone, creating cavities that fill with water. The Yucatan peninsula is home to thousands of cenotes, many of which are open to the public for swimming and snorkelling. Tulum is one of the best places to visit cenotes, as there are several popular ones, including Gran Cenote, Dos Ojos and Angelita. When visiting a cenote, bring your own towel and swimwear, as most cenotes do not have changing cubicles. Also make sure to bring sunscreen, as the sun can be strong even when you are underwater. Cenote swimming is a great activity for all ages and a refreshing break from the heat of the Mexican sun.

Travelling to ancient ruins is always a fascinating experience, and the ruins of Tulum in Mexico are no exception. These well-preserved remains of a once thriving city offer visitors a glimpse into the past, and the many insights you can gain by exploring them. The first thing to notice about the ruins is their location: atop a cliff overlooking the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. It is easy to understand why the ancient Maya chose this place as their home; it is truly breathtaking. As you wander through the ruins, you will marvel at the clever engineering used to construct the buildings. Although they were built centuries ago, many of the structures are still standing, a testament to the skill of the builders. And although much of Tulum lies in ruins, there are also many well-preserved carvings and murals that give an insight into daily life in this once great city. A visit to the ruins of Tulum is sure to be a memorable experience.

As soon as you walk into Batey, you imagine yourself on holiday. The air is heavy with the scent of mint, and the bartenders are busy muddling herbs and squeezing lime juice. The menu offers a wide choice of mojitos, each with its own unique twist. We ordered the Passionfruit Mojito, which was refreshingly tart with just a hint of sweet. It was the perfect way to cool down on a hot day. We also ordered the Watermelon Mojito and the Mango Mojito, both of which were also delicious. If you’re looking for a place to relax and enjoy tasty drinks, Batey is definitely the place to go.
