Tulum: Exploring This Side of Mexico

Mexico has remained to be one of the most popular destinations for American tourists with the greatest number arriving at Cancun airport with tourists from different countries, the U.S. included. In 2014, there were 24.9 visitors in Mexico. These days, however, the secluded resort town Tulum is slowly gaining popularity. Aside from a perfect coastline with green waters, sugary sand and balmy trees, there are other spectacular places of interest for exploration. Here are some of the attractions to build memories from:

Mayan Ruins

Tour the ruins at Palenque and Chichen Itza to get a taste of rich culture and ancient history. The Chichen Itza is the most famous among the restored Yucatan Maya sites. However, it is also one of the most crowded. The Palanque, on the other hand, is equally beautiful with a dense jungle serving as a perfect backdrop. It is located where the first hills from the Gulf coast plain are seen. You can hire a driver from Plaza del Carmen for $150 and a tour guide who will tell you all about the history of the Mayan ruins.

Labnaha Cenotes and Eco Park

If you are travelling with the family, head to this natural wonder and explore the caves and be in awe with the lush and greens. This place can be explored in an hour on a not so busy day. You can also enjoy a swim and be amazed with the fossils. Other activities include zip lining, canoeing and exploring the underground cenotes.

Playa Paraiso

As part of your trip to Tulum, enjoy the free beach after touring the Mayan ruins to enjoy the clear cold waters and powder white sands of this beach. After dipping, enjoy Guacamole and have some drinks. You can also spend time at the café.
