Explore the world's top destinations from the comfort and privacy of a full-service luxury villa.
Tulum is considered as one of the best tourist destinations in the world, and it is easy to see the reason why!
From the incredibly well preserved archaeological sites, underground river under a canopy of stalactites to cave diving spots and pristine beaches, it’s a heaven for adventure seekers and travellers.
If you’re still not convinced, though, here are some of the exciting things you can do in Tulum:
- Go cave diving.
Tulum cave diving is hailed as one of the best in the world. The limestone bedrock and freshwater rivers underneath, which have carved out caves and denotes, have created incredible diving conditions. The additional warmth of the Caribbean water is an additional bonus. With the sun shining through the water, it also adds more clarity.
While this diving will thrill even the most experienced divers with difficult dives available, this is also a great location for beginner divers, with many novice classes offered. For beginner divers, we recommend Casa Cenote, and for more experiences divers the "Pet Cemetery" cenote promises adventure. Explore the deep blue in Tulum, with beautiful rays of lights enhancing this natural beauty.
For those looking for an underwater adventure, Tulum, Mexico is the right place for you!

2. Explore the stunning beaches.
If you’re a beach bum through and through, then there’s arguably no better place in Mexico to visit than Tulum. In fact, so idyllic are the shores of this formerly sleepy beach town, even non sand-in-the-bikini-bottom lovers will be sold on the idea of lounging around on the beach all day. Undoubtedly one of the most iconic beaches in Tulum is the aptly named Playa Paraíso (Paradise Beach) which has stunning azure waters, practically-white powder sand and plenty of swaying palms.
3. Enjoy the vibrant nightlife.
Aside from natural wonders and gorgeous beaches, Tulum has some of the country’s best nightlife, from full moon beach parties at the legendary Papaya Playa Project to the uber popular Cuban bar on the central strip, Batey. If you want great mezcal, you can’t miss the underrated hidden gem known as Nakawé, or perhaps you’d prefer to drink some exquisite cocktails in a lush outdoor seating terrace at Gitano. And these are just some of Tulum’s many excellent options!
4. Binge on the rich food culture.
Tulum may not have the fish taco reputation of the Baja Peninsula, or the taco tradition of Mexico City, but the food here is fresh, inventive and to die for – especially the ceviche. If you’re a fan of food this is honestly one of Mexico’s top destinations to get stuck into the culinary scene, whether you like seafood (head to El Camello) or vegan and vegetarian options, there’s something to suit all tastes and palates in Tulum. Hartwood is also a top choice, serving up a shifting menu each day according to the available products.
One of the most luxurious restaurants in Tulum is El Asadero. Located in the center of Tulum, El Asadero is definitely one of the best restaurants in Tulum that we came across and is very popular amongst locals and tourists alike.El Asadero serves up delicious Mexican BBQ, the restaurant’s signature dish, Arrachera steak, will melt in your mouth it is that good! One of us always orders the Arrachera steak, it’s our favorite dish in Tulum.As well as all the amazing meat dishes, the atmospheric El Asadero also has some great tacos, vegetarian meals, and cocktails for you to sample. Due to its popularity, you may have to book in advance if you don’t want to end up queuing for one of its indoor or outdoor tables.
