Newcomer, Tulum, has been more recently put on travel radars in the last few years as it gains popularity amongst the health and wellness crowd. A bohemian, eco, and health-conscious paradise, Tulum is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in all of the Yucatan Peninsula. Yoga and wellness retreats draw crowds of taste-makers and socialites year-round to their chic beachfront hotels which boast beach bars that serve artisan cocktails for western prices. Accommodations are definitely the most expensive in Tulum, with no large chain resorts to be found. This is not to say that cheaper accommodations aren’t available, especially away from the beach and inland toward Tulum town.
Tulum is not the all-inclusive fiesta that is Cancun, nor is it the laid-back heart of the Riviera like Playa Del Carmen. Tulum is where paradise meets style. With a growing art, food, and culture scene, Tulum continues to rise as a bucket-list destination for young adults, solo travelers, honeymooners, and digital nomads. In Tulum, you will find all the best of what the Yucatan has to offer, from the Tulum ruins to one of the most popular and beautiful cenotes in the area, Dos Ojos. The drawback?
