Tulum is exceptionally rich in cenotes and you can spend your entire vacation hunting for cenote hunting.

Some of the best spots to stay are the Coco Tulum Zen Hotel with a private beach of pearly white sand and a place where you can practice yoga and enjoy the positive energy running through your veins.

The reason for the hippie vibe must be because of the laid-back people and atmosphere, sunny weather, natural beauty, and wild jungle vibes. There is a vibe of people being passed and it is mostly because of the spiritual side of life that people from this place enjoy.

Laguna Kaan Luum

Laguna Kaan Luum is one of the most famous spots. This can remind people of the Blue Hole in Belize. This one has some shallow water followed by some incredibly deep water. This is a sinkhole in a jungle. It is very popular among the tourists since this activity and location are pretty cheap. This is the place where you can enjoy both swimming and scuba diving, even though some people find it more attractive from the air than down on the ground.

Sian Ka’an

Even though people are most impressed by the beautiful, long, sandy beach of Tulum, there is another very important spot to visit before parting. You need to get into the jungle. One of the best spots to visit is the Sian Ka’an which is known as the biosphere paradise in Tulum. It is located a bit farther from Tulum so you will need a car or local guide to reach the spot.

However, it is worth it. Sian Ka’aan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is a huge area located in the tropical forest, ideal for hammock relaxation and night spent in a jungle hut. This is a place where the jungle meets the ocean so you can go scuba diving or snorkeling and therefore explore the rich marine life of this amazing place.

Mayan Ruins

There are numerous reasons why the architecture of Tulum is so attractive. It is more than obvious that the jungle and nature are the main inspiration for the local architects. The characteristics of the architecture are the combination of the unique Mayan culture and minimalistic building techniques. Something very striking is the huge wooden sculptures and structures.

The Ancient Mayan City of Tulum is the spot you need to visit. You can rent a bike and go for a short ride from the Tulum Playa to the most cherished place in the Mayan culture of Tulum. Even though the ruins and remains of the great structures do not look very interesting, the point is to try to figure out how these immense structures might have looked.
