Trails + Biking
Biking is widely thought of as the best way to get around in Tulum. Borrow on of our on-property bicycles and hit the trails to the beach, the cenotes, downtown Tulum and more.
Tulum Annual Events
Tulum is a wonderful place to visit year-round, but foodies, music fans and wellness aficionados may want to plan around one of the beloved annual events.
Tulum was once the location of a Mayan walled city and now visitors can get up close and personal with these well-preserved historical artifacts just a few kilometers from the resort.
These natural swimming holes were considered sacred by the ancient Maya and you can see why via swimming, snorkeling and even scuba diving. Several of Tulum’s best cenotes are just a short bike ride away.
Day Trips + Outdoor Adventures
From the fascinating Sian Ka’am Biosphere (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) to tours of Mayan ruins, zip-lining, bike tours and much more, we can recommend day trips in and around Tulum no matter what you want to do.
The delightfully walkable and bikeable downtown Tulum offers up independent shops, bars, restaurants and galleries as well as beautiful spaces for yoga, meditation, massage and other pre-Hispanic rituals.
