Best Things to Do in Tulum

You can't visit Tulum without checking out the Mayan ruins, but take a morning tour to free up your afternoon for sunbathing and swimming in the bright blue water. Also try snorkeling at one of the several cenotes, or take a canal trip through the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. Spas are also luxurious and plentiful here: Book a yoga class or Temazcal session at the Maya Spa Wellness Center
