Get ready for an ordinary vacation in Tulum. A vacation in Tulum is about escaping the “connected” with Hi-Tech world and returning to nature and the beach is the perfect place for that. Enjoy a soothing massage as you watch the waves crash on the shore of the world’s second largest barrier reef, go snorkelling or diving in the warm turquoise sea, explore the jungle and hidden beaches or just kick back, relax and soak up the top the sun; Whatever you decide to do, it is guaranteed that after a beach vacation in Tulum you will feel calm and rejuvenated. Any time of year is good for a beach holiday in Tulum, but I recommend between Christmas and Easter, especially if you come from a cold climate, it will not be hot. Tulum is also for the economical backpack or expense conscious traveler.
Tulum is located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, about 2 hours or about 130 km south of Cancun and about 3 hours north of Chetumal and the border with Belize. Tulum tends to attract a quieter and older crowd than the college kids from the spring break who flock to Cancun. Tulum is home to several international resorts of the highest class, where you can pamper yourself and treat yourself as royalty with all your needs, desires and whims. In addition, there is a large selection of restaurants offering different different types of international cuisine, so satisfying your appetite should not be a problem. Tulum does not have the nightlife of Playa del Carmen or Cancun, but for those who stay on the beach after sunset until the time when the stars appear from above; the perception of simplicity seems like the best advice in the world. Tulum is known worldwide for its Mayan ruins and magnificent beaches.
Tulum is mainly divided into three parts: the city, Tulum Hotel [http://www.mezzanine.com.mx/hotel/index.html] zone and lastly the reason why Tulum exists, the ruins of the Maya, the only archaeological site of this section of the coastline of Mexico. The Mayan ruins in Tulum are a very impressive site. Head a little south of the ruins to discover a real paradise, where the beach stretches for miles and miles of white sand, framed by dense jungle and dotted with beach cabins, boutique hotels and beautiful resorts.
