Tulum is one of Mexico’s most popular tourist destinations and its reputation for great parties, great food, great beaches and great history is thoroughly deserved. Mayan ruins, yoga sessions, boutique shopping and beach-bumming are just some of the best activities in Tulum. No matter if you are travelling as a family, a couple or simply flying solo, this resort is one of our top picks for this part of the world.
Cheap holidays to Tulum are already very popular with travellers from the UK and the region can be reached from a select few airports here. The best way to get to Tulum from the UK is to fly to Cancún airport and from there, the resort is around an hour and a half drive away. Make sure you check the Cheekytrip comparison site for more summer and winter getaways to this stunning part of the world. Direct flights to Cancún usually take around 10 and a half hours.
Because of its year-round popularity, there really isn’t a bad time to visit Tulum. The busiest months with the most activity and tourist facilities are the winter months, with temperatures reaching the high 20s and people looking to escape the cold winters in the UK. May to June is a better time to go if you want to visit when the crowds have died down a little, although the temperatures reach the mid 30s throughout these months and it can be a long way to travel for some summer sun. Because of this, we recommend a visit during the winter season to get that rare bit of winter sunshine.
There are a number of amazing things to do in Tulum, with the resort growing year after year. One of our favourites is to take a dive in one of the region’s Cenotes. These natural fresh water pools are where many tourists and locals flock to to either swim or snorkel. Snorkelling isn’t just popular in the Cenotes though, with many snorkelling tours in the beach areas which take you up close to a variety of marine life as well as the option to simply go snorkelling on your own. Tulum is full of hidden gems, and perhaps our favourite is the breathtaking Yaan Spa. Situated in an idyllic location, this spa is the perfect place to get pampered and they even host yoga classes amongst the forest treetops - simply incredible!
Due to the sheer size of Tulum and the number of visitors it receives each year, there is a vast amount and selection of accommodation options to choose from.

The same is true for dining out, with a healthy mix of traditional Mexican restaurants with live Mariachi bands, beach bars for snacking on the catch of the day and more tourist-focused fast food places for you to take your pick from.
