Here’s a List of Activities You Can Do in Tulum

There’s no question about it. When someone hears the word Tulum, they naturally paint a picture of this beautiful beach in their head. They then think of celebrities, hippies, posh cabanas, little boutique hotels and stores and much, much more. However, there are many activities you can do that are fun and you probably wouldn’t think of off the bat. Oh, the Mayan Ruins are something you must see when you are visiting Tulum… but you obviously knew that.

So, if you’re wondering what activities you can do in Tulum, here are a few ideas to have a wonderful day in this beautiful town:

 

Rent a bike in Tulum

We were thinking somewhere along the lines of biking around Tulum; seeing everything there is to see and going at your own pace. You can rent a bike daily for approximately $80 pesos, which is around $5.00 USD per day. If you rent on a weekly basis, you will get a better price.

Bike ride through Coba

Nonetheless, if you wanted to go for a bike ride through the jungle, we would point you in the direction of “Coba.” Coba is an archeological site that was open for public use in 1973. Coba has many different ruins to explore around. However, they do have one incredible ruin that you are actually able to climb to the very top to see the amazing views of the jungle above the trees. When you first arrive to Coba, you have the option of renting a bike or choosing to walk. We of course recommend to rent a bike, and make your time at Coba much more adventurous and fun. At the end of the day, you are doing enough walking if you choose to walk up the ruin, so biking to the ruin could be a good choice.

Activities you can do in Tulum

Yoga

One thing that you will notice in Tulum are the Yogi’s (people who like doing yoga.) Therefore, there are a lot of yoga studios. If you have never tried Yoga before, Tulum is the place to do so. With cheap prices, and being located right on the Caribbean Sea, it will be the best experience of your life. Classes usually start around 8:30 am or evening classes around 5:00 pm.

Activities you can do in Tulum

Cenotes

What is a cenote you may be wondering?

A cenote is a sinkhole that has water underneath the hole and we now use it for swimming purposes. A cenote formed when the limestone bedrock collapsed. What an innovative idea right? Well let me tell you, the Riviera Maya is filled with all these magnificent sinkholes that make the perfect snorkeling spot.

Make sure you research ahead of time which sink hole you would like to visit and be prepared with a towel, biodegradable sunscreen, so we don’t harm the fish, and your snorkeling gear. If you have an underwater camera, you should definitely bring that along too! There are people who come to the cenotes for diving purposes. If you like diving, this would be the perfect place to do so. If you have never done it before and would like to try, the shallower waters make it less frightening. Three great cenotes you can visit are:

  1. Gran Cenote
  2. Cenote Dos Ojos
  3. Cenote Calavera

Day Of The Dead In Mexico

Day of the dead is a big holiday we celebrate in Mexico. Some people even celebrate it in different countries all over the world. The day of the dead is exactly how it sounds. Mexicans take a day to remember all their loved ones that have past away. This particular day of course is important everyday but, here in Mexico people like to denote one day out of all the other days to be extra special. There are many different festivities that go on in Mexico too during the day of the dead. This ritual has been going on for thousands of years already.

Frances Ann Day puts this three day celebration of the day of the dead into perspective:

On October 31, All Hallows Eve, the children make a children’s altar to invite the angelitos (spirits of dead children) to come back for a visit. November 1 is All Saints Day, and the adult spirits will come to visit. November 2 is All Souls Day, when families go to the cemetery to decorate the graves and tombs of their relatives. The three-day fiesta is filled with marigolds, the flowers of the dead; muertos (the bread of the dead); sugar skulls; cardboard skeletons; tissue paper decorations; fruit and nuts; incense, and other traditional foods and decorations.”

The day of the dead is actually a happy day here in Mexico. As a matter of fact, Mexicans celebrate all the fun events they had with their past ancestors and people they are remembering on this day. Many people bring their favorite food and beverages to the cemetery and say prayers. This helps to speak with the souls of the dead. They also drop of flowers and photographs and anything that helps represent their life. Most people on this day go to the gravesites and clean around their graves. Moreover, some people even spend the night next to their loved ones grave or have a picnic beside it.

Ofrendas to the death

In addition, Mexicans also prepare an ofrenda, which is an altar they dedicate to the person they are remembering. They decorate this altars with traditional food, candies, candles and more. In Mexico, ofrendas are so important and meaningful that there are even contests. Basically, people dedicate to decorate an altar with objects that symbolizes a person. The result is actually amazing and ofrendas are really beautiful.

Also, public schools and different government offices prepare different arts and crafts on this day. This day is a big day in Mexico and it should not go without some sort of applause to your deceased. Some locations around Mexico even dress up and deceased or they wear seashells on their clothes, because they believe they will wake up the dead. Each person has his or her own way to celebrate this day and it is a neat holiday to be in Mexico for!

What is a Cenote?

You might have heard the word ‘cenote’ when traveling to Mexico, or even read about it on one of our other blog posts – and wondered what is a cenote. Well, a it is actually a natural-hole underground which was caused by limestone bedrock collapsing. Another term for cenote is a sinkhole.

Cenotes are a very popular attraction in Mexico, especially in the Riviera Maya. People go swimming in the cenotes, and use them for snorkeling and diving. If you get tired of spending every day at the beach, and need to escape the hot sun for a couple day, we would highly recommend visiting a few different cenotes. Each sinkhole has a different entrance price. However, this is well worth it! When you research as to which one you want to visit during your time in the Riviera Maya, we would recommend packing your snorkeling gear or renting some before you come. Some cenotes offer gear for rent but most of them requires you to bring your own.

Cenote Sinkhole

Cenotes are amazing because the atmosphere is very natural

You are in the middle of nature, swimming in a natural sinkhole with hundreds of different fish swimming around you. It is definitely something you will want to experience during your time in Mexico. Depending on the cenote you decide to visit, there are cliffs that you can jump off of. This is for the daring travelers.

Packing list for a day at a Cenote:

  • Towel
  • Snorkeling gear or diving gear
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Biodegradable sunscreen
  • Water shoes
  • Underwater camera or any camera
  • Money for entrance fee

Top cenotes in the Riviera Maya:

  1. Cenote Azul
  2. Cenote Ponderosa
  3. Dos Ojos
  4. Gran Cenote
  5. Ik Il Cenote
  6. Rio Secreto

Cenote Sinkhole

Each one of these cenotes is driving distance from Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Rio Secreto is a neat sinkhole because it is actually connected by a river underground.  Whether you want to experience this place on your own or book a tour and hear about the history, that’s totally up to you; nonetheless, we would recommend making time for this one. If you live in Playa del Carmen, Rio Secreto is only five minutes outside of town. If you are on a tight budget and don’t have money to pay for entrance fee’s, there is a small cenote on the beach towards the north end of 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen.

 

 

Chichen Itza – The Largest Archaeological Site in the Yucatan Peninsula

Mexico and the Riviera Maya have so many beautiful and exciting things to do. There are literally thousands of sites to see and places to go. However, if there’s one thing you should do when visiting Mexico, it should be a visit to the world-renowned site of Chichen Itza.

Chichen Itza is Mexico’s largest archaeological site in the Yucatan Peninsula including the  Riviera Maya. UNESCO classified this site as a World Heritage Site, and is now considered as one of the New Seven Wonders of The World. With status’ like these, Chichen Itza is a must see for anyone travelling to Mexico.

Numerous ruins encompass the Kukulkan Pyramid in the Archaeological site. This pyramid is the main attraction of Chichen Itza with heights staggering up to 79 feet. Also, the pyramid is perfectly symmetrical, and the ancient Mayan people who once ruled the region built it with immaculate precision.

Chichen Itza is the favorite archaeological site in Mexico for tourists

You can easily reach the archaeological site from surrounding cities such as Cancun, which is around 100 miles away. Chichen Itza is the most visited archaeological site in Mexico, meaning it can get quite busy with crowds. The best time to see it is at opening time in the morning before the tourist buses arrive. Upon arriving, make sure to apply sunscreen, as there is very little shade. As well, bring enough water and wear proper footwear, as you will be doing a lot of walking. With that said, the site is something truly special, with so much beauty, architecture and history surrounding the Mayan culture. It’s a must see on anyone’s bucket-list.

Tourists who visit the site learn so much about the ancient city and the Mayan Culture through a very informative information center; as well as through friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. Tourists can also explore the ruins on their own without a tour guide. The entrance fee is $242 MXN. If you choose to go with a tour it’s not much more and varies in price.

As well, if you are traveling from the popular destinations of Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Tulum, there are various tour packages that bring you to the site and surrounding areas. If you’re more adventurous and prefer to site see on your own, you can either rent a car or take the ADO bus from the major cities in the Yucatan and Quintana Roo. Upon arriving, tourists can purchase various souvenirs from the gift shop or from numerous stands amongst the ancient city.

Getting Around Tulum Like a Local

You stumbled upon the right blog post at the right time, because we are about to tell you how to get around Tulum like a Mexican!

When you arrive to a new place it’s always a struggle trying to get from point A to point B. Especially when you throw in the language barrier; that just adds a whole other whack of stress.

It doesn’t have to be like that… When you do the appropriate research before your trip, you would be surprised as to how easy it is to get around. A little research can make it seem like you’ve been to the place before. The easiest thing is to look on different forums and see what other travellers did when they traveled to that destination.

Getting around Tulum

Modes of transportation to get around Tulum:

Bus: There are a couple local buses and ADO buses that take you around Tulum and back and forth from Playa del Carmen and Cancun. You can find the ADO bus schedule here.

Bike: There are many different bike shops and hotels that rent out bikes for the day/week/month located all around Tulum. We would recommend this way of transportation. This way you get your exercise and get to where you need to be. Also, what better way to take advantage of the Caribbean heat than by using a bike

Getting around Tulum

Two feet: We just had to include this. Walking is a good way to get around Tulum. Depending on where you stay, you can walk to most places. If you stay somewhere on Tulum beach or close by, then you can definitely walk to and from the places you need to be. Everything here is in walking distance. From restaurants to supermarkets to boutique stores. You name it you can walk to it.

Colectivo: The colectivo is a large white van that takes you around the town and to Akumal, Playa and Cancun. You just have to be prepared and know where the colectivo stops are and stand there. This is an easy form of transportation. If you do not want to wait for a bus, the colectivo comes every few minutes. Don’t be alarmed to see a bunch of locals packed in tight in one of these vans. It just makes it that much more comfortable.

Now that you know how easy is to get around Tulum, go visit all the beautiful places this town has to offer. Moving around Tulum has never been this easy!

 

 

The Mayan Ruins in Tulum

If you are visiting Tulum for the first time, the Mayan Ruins are a place you must check out. The ruins are located 1.5 hours away from Cancun International Airport, and approximately 40 minutes from Playa del Carmen; right in the middle of Tulum on the beach. The entrance fee into the ruins is $70 pesos or around $4.00 USD per person.

The Ruins are open everyday from 8:00 am-5:00 pm. The last entrance of the day being is at 4:30 pm. We recommend arriving earlier than 4:30 pm because there is a lot of ruins to see and learn about. Some people spend hours upon hours looking around and learning about the Mayan history. It is interesting to visit because it was the only Mayan walled city built on the coast.

Mayan Ruins in Tulum

The Mayan Ruins in Tulum overlook that picturesque view of the turquoise water and white sandy beach. We are sure you have seen it before on the Internet. You can also swim at this beach for free if you would like to. Just bring your swimsuit and a towel for afterwards. You will want to see this beach on a calm day to experience the different tones of blue and to capture that picture that is circling the Internet.

Don’t forget to bring your camera and something to keep the sun beating down on you – like a sunhat. There is not much shade when you are walking around the ruins, so it is always good to come prepared. Packing a water bottle to stay hydrated is a smart idea too!

This place is truly magical, and the history is unbelievable

Knowing that Mayans used to live in this ‘city’ will completely amaze you. We also recommend hiring a guide to explain to you everything you would ever want to know about the ruins and the history of the Mayans. These guides are well educated and will be able to answer you questions. You can hire a guide at the entrance of the ruins at a negotiable price, depending on the season and the demand. If you do not want to hire a guide, there are boards with useful information you can read all along the ruins.

Mayan Ruins in Tulum

In regards to staying close to the Mayan Ruins, there are many beautiful boutique hotels that are walking distance to the ruins. They are located along the south beach of Tulum. Booking ahead of time will secure you a preferable place. Tulum does get busy; so don’t wait till the last minute. Although there is always room for everyone, it will just take some time to find a place.

Get ready to be in total awe of the Mayan culture and all the uniqueness that Tulum has to offer. There is never a bad day to visit Tulum, so whenever you decide to go, spend as much time as you need.
