Tulum is known for its magic. Crystal clear water, ceremonies, delicious food, and it certainly attracts a special kind of people. It’s that people that are on their self discovery journey. Can be on many levels, spiritual, relationships, business, learning to travel alone, wedding trips, and so on.
For us, the locals, everyday is an adventure. Because we share so much passion for this place, and we love to connect with people from all around the world that have been brought by destiny or the universe to this land that kisses the ocean and meets the manglar.
I was asked to do a Tulum Guide, and that brought me to think and self-reflect about all the different experiences I have had in this magical beach town (hey! I know it’s called a city now. But once upon a time it was a small town).
Tulum as a Local
CoWorking from different coffee shops in town and Aldea Zama Local Projects that keep Tulum alive (LADLE, Puntos Verdes, Alma Animal) Cenote exploring – plenty of options, doing some research and figuring out which suits your vibe is the best!
Try street food – from vegan to non vegan, Tulum is rich in variety and local flavors.
Tulum as a Tourist
Temazcal – either a private session or a group session.
Secret spot to watch the sunrise (KM 5.5, enter the beach, climb the rocks to your right and delight yourself with the view).
Siaan Ka’an Biosphere, just walk on the beach until you feel like it!
Cocktails and dancing – let the music from different bars and restaurants charm you, you will find yourself dancing surrounded by beautiful people. When the exhaustion from all the day activities kick in, there are plenty of gorgeous hotels in Tulum to retire the night in.
Tulum as a Backpacker / Solo Traveller
Ruins – get there early
Museum Mystika – plan it after the ruins. It’s close by, and it’s a nice shock of AC after being in the sun. Epic art, have your battery ready for a load of photos.
Public beach – if you get the chance to go on a weekday, it’s the best. This is the place where locals go on weekends and gets super crowded.
Walk on the – all the way opposite of the ruins, you will find rocks on sea level. It’s a beautiful walk with photogenic spots.
