Tulum is located on the Mayan Riviera, just 1 hour and 30 minutes south of Cancun. It is the most important archeological site of Quintana Roo State. Located on the beach facing the Caribbean Sea, it’s a site abundant in natural beauty and culture.
Tulum's greatest attraction is its location. It stands on a bluff facing the rising sun looking out on views of the Caribbean that are nothing less than spectacular. In Maya, Tulum means "Wall", and the city was christened thus because it is a walled city; one of the very few the ancients ever built.
A unique combination of breathtaking beaches, archeaological zones, and town, Tulum is a destination unlike any other in the world. Check out the latest 'buzz' on Tulum:
