Mexico Tulum

Photos to Inspire a Tulum Trip

Why is everyone so obsessed with Tulum?

Just a few years ago, Tulum wasn’t even on many travelers’ radars. South of Cancun on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, Tulum is far enough away from the Cancun craziness to be a haven for relaxation. Not only is Tulum more laid back, but there are also fewer crowds and a lot of hotels and restaurants are locally run. 

After spending a week in this beach meets jungle locale, I totally get why people are obsessed with this place. I’ve written about my trip (10 reasons to visit Tulum) before, but on this dreary winter day, I’m going to let my pictures do the talking.

These photos represent all of the moments that struck me as quintessentially Tulum. Pristine white sand beaches, Mayan ruins atop a cliff overlooking jade-green water, cenotes with clear, cool water, balmy breezes, luxurious spas with ancient rituals, rustic cabanas, and Mezcal bars with twinkling disco balls that signify the start of a night filled with dancing.

Have you ever visited a place so special it stayed in your heart for months afterwards?
