Tulum is a fortress on the shores of the Caribbean dating to 1000 AD. This is one of the most beautiful Mayan ruins in the Riviera Maya region. Next to it we find the town of the same name which has in recent years been developed to focus on tourism, thanks to the attraction of the nearby ruins, mainly for backpackers, although we can currently find establishments for all budgets.

This town is characterised by being organised around the federal road from which it is accessed. Its streets have a colourful, bohemian atmosphere, ideal for those seeking the simple character of the towns far from tourist centres. Tulum is also a great point of departure for visiting the cenotes of the region and other important archaeological remains such as Coba. We also find all kinds of conveniences such as restaurants, vehicle hire, companies that organise excursions, and many shops for purchasing local handicrafts. The town in itself has several cycle lanes that allow easy movement in the surroundings, making hiring a bicycle a great idea if you wish to discover this place in a different way.
