Three in one. In the Mexican peninsula of Yucatán, on the Mayan Riviera, Tulum is an ancient Mayan city that houses a remarkable archaeological site and at the same time a magnificent white sandy beach and beautiful seabed. The Tulum site stretches 6 km along the beach and the Caribbean Sea in a lush wilderness environment. We discover two temples, a castillo, walls, houses, steles. But it is also for seaside tourism that the destination is appreciated for its nature and beaches. At the edge of the ruins lies Tulum National Park, a coastal area of mangroves and natural wells (cenotes). This destination is paradoxical. Don't leave without your favorite travel guide! You have the choice of resorts, luxury hotels and beach clubs, the possibility of joining eco-parks of more or less sporting, more or less cultural attractions and discover ecosystems preserved with a high biodiversity. The choice between the beach and the Mayan ruins, between celebration and idleness, between swimming with sea turtles and relaxing in a charming spa.

When to go to Tulum?

When to go to Tulum? The year is divided into three periods in Tulum. The best period, ideal to benefit from preferential rates, is from April to June and then from September to November. The intermediate period is due to the school holidays in July and August. The tourist boom period extends from December to March or April, depending on the dates of Holy Week.

How to go to Tulum? Our advice & tips

  • Organised trips
  • Going alone
  • Moving around

Mexico is a huge country and it is impossible to discover it in one trip. Tour operators mainly offer stays of about ten days around a theme (Mayan culture, Aztec sites...) or a region (the Pacific, Yucatán, Chiapas, the capital and its surroundings).

Well served, Mexico is a generally safe country for solo travellers. The wave of violence linked to drug cartels and social repression generally spares tourists; neither criminals nor the state wants to attract too much publicity. However, tourists can be easy prey, especially in the subway, taxi or street at nightfall. The ordinary rules of caution should be observed: do not display your camera, "banana" or wallet

It is very easy to travel by plane in the country, most cities being equipped with an airport. There is also a very good long-distance bus network at low prices. However, depending on the route, to save time on the plane and avoid long hours on the bus, the plane is often more interesting. Note: with the emergence of low-cost airlines on some routes, air and bus fares are sometimes identical
