Tulum is the most up-coming beach resort in all of Mexico and has the most beautiful beaches. Formerly known for the well-preserved remains of a Mayan port town, Tulum has transformed itself in recent years into the “hip” beach town for the young and young at heart. Along the coastline are more than 100 small and fine boutique hotels as well as many beach clubs and restaurants. The beaches of Tulum are world famous for their fine sand. Tulum is also a good starting point for excursions into the nearby nature, be it to the nature reserve of Sian Ka’an or to one of the numerous cenotes. The Mayan archaeological site of Tulum as well as Cobá and Chichén Itzá and others can be easily reached in a day.
