Direct Flights to Tulum Coming Soon!
Going to Tulum is about to get a lot easier!
Up until now, to get to Tulum, you had to fly to Cancun first. Then, you’d have to get a ride to Tulum from the airport. The drive to Tulum from the Cancun airport is about 1.5 hours.
Thankfully, the Tulum Airport will finally be open this December! You’ll soon be able to get direct flights to this popular tourist destination, so you’ll be able to make the most of your vacation.
If you haven’t been to Tulum, you may be wondering what all the hype is about.
Here are some popular attractions and activities for you to see and do while in Tulum:
Playa Paraiso is Tulum’s most popular beach club, and is ranked as the best beach of all of Mexico. It is open every day at 10am - 6pm. Entrance is free, but furniture such as beach beds, sun beds, umbrellas, tables and chairs are available for rent. There is a restaurant on-site which serves delicious food and drinks (outside food and drinks are not allowed). The beach club does not take reservations - space is available on a first come, first served basis, so early arrival is suggested.
Playa Pescadores is another very popular beach in Tulum. It is especially great for marine life enthusiasts, as there are various water-based activities available such as snorkeling. You may even see fishermen bringing back their haul of fish! There are bars and restaurants nearby, as well, for you to grab a bite and enjoy some refreshing drinks.
Just 10 minutes away from downtown Tulum is the Gran Cenote. It is one of the most popular cenotes in the region and is the perfect place for a beautiful adventure. Swim, snorkel, and dive right in! It is open everyday at 8am - 5pm and the entrance fee is 500 pesos (about $27 USD).
Smaller than Gran Cenote, yet still just as gorgeous, is the Cenote Zacil-Ha. Also just 10 minutes from Tulum, this natural crystal pool is an absolute dream. Rejuvenate yourself in the crystal clear waters of this cenote during your trip!
Tulum is one of the last cities that was inhabited by the Mayan people, which makes it a destination full of rich history and culture that shouldn’t go overlooked! The Tulum Ruins are a must see during your visit. They’re open to the public everyday at 8am - 5pm; early arrival is highly recommended to avoid crowds.
