Tulum is located on the Mayan Riviera, just 1 hour and 30 minutes south of Cancun. 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;" the city was named as such, because it is a walled city - one of the very few the ancients ever built.
A unique combination of breathtaking beaches, archaeological zones, world class dining and shopping experiences, Tulum is a destination unlike any other in the world.
