Located south of Cancún – on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula – Tulum is now on your Insta feed multiple times a day. Tulum is undeniably a hotspot for Instagrammers and bloggers. Everywhere you turn, there’s a stylish, Instagram-worthy spot awaiting you. It’s truly an Instagrammer’s paradise.

Tulum was the perfect mix of chilling on those turquoise Caribbean beaches, eating incredible food, and exploring Mayan ruins. Once a laid-back beach destination, Tulum has made its mark as a holistic, yoga-filled, free people, and vegan dreamland. Heading to the pristine beaches and the balmy breezes of Tulum? My Tulum travel guide covers the best things to see and do, where to eat, what to pack and where to stay in Tulum, Mexico.

Tulum Quick Facts

Tulum is situated on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, in the Riviera Maya district. Located only 131 km south of Cancun (1 hour and 46 minutes driving time) and 65 km south of Playa del Carmen (less than one hour driving time), Tulum is a popular destination for travelers. In recent years, the town has become more high-end, due to wealthier travelers flocking in, so prices in Tulum are more expensive than similar resort areas in the Yucatán.

Language: Spanish is the main language spoken by the locals, although most working in the tourism industry will also speak English relatively well.
