The beach in Tulum is an award-winning beach. Think long, white, powder like sand that stretches on for miles. One of the best things about Tulum beach is that it is still fairly quiet and you can find areas that are remote. Why not head up to spend a day at a beach club? Laze out on a beach bed, eat fresh ceviche, and enjoy a few cold cocktails… Check out our list of beach clubs.
WIKIPEDIA SAYS: A cenote (English: /sɨˈnoʊtiː/ or /sɛˈnoʊteɪ/; Spanish: [seˈnote] or [θeˈnote]; plural: cenotes; from Yucatec Maya dzonot or ts’onot,“well”) is a deep natural pit, or sinkhole, characteristic of Mexico, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath.
TULUM.COM SAYS: Simply an awesome experience. Fresh, cool, crystal clear water that was believed to have healing powers? Yes, please. There are cenotes all around the area, you can explore them on your own or opt for a tour that includes cenotes.
The ride through the Sian Ka’an biosphere is a long and bumpy ride. However, the views on the way there, the simple fisherman’s village of Punta Allen and the wildlife you will get to see make the bumps worthwhile. Wild dolphins, turtles, over 300 species of birds, crocodiles, and manatees are some of the species you will have the privilege to observe in their natural habitat.
