The best place to stay in Mexico for couples, but also for families and single travellers is definitely Tulum – one of the most fascinating and seducing places in the world. Tulum is not only worldwide famous for its amazing Mayan ruins, but also for its breathtaking shores, incredibly blue sea and spectacular sandy beaches.
If you’re looking for the best place to stay in Mexico, Tulum is the perfect choice especially if you want to try snorkeling at one of the several cenotes – the famous subterranean swimming holes in the area – or enjoy a canal trip through the mesmerizing Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
There are many things that you can do during your vacation in Tulum and that’s the reason why this territory is listed as one of best places to stay in Mexico. El Gran Cenote, for example, is definitely a place that shouldn’t be missed: considered sacred waters by the Mayans, this cenote is possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world for swimming and diving, for snorkeling and observing fascinating natural wonders such as geological features, stalagmites, stalactites. Just imagine diving there with your loved one! Isn’t it a wonderful reverie?
El Gran Cenote is located only 20 miles outside of Tulum and our suggestion is to arrive early, in order to fully experience the magical atmosphere of this unforgettable place.
The Tulum ruins are also another sight that makes this area the best place to stay in Mexico. They are, in fact, the source of Tulum’s popularity because they represent one of the most famous Mayan archaeological sites along the well-known Riviera Maya. The ruins sit on a patch of rocky coastline not far away from Tulum’s downtown and include several temples and castles from the pre-Colombian Mayans. If you’re planning your holiday in Tulum, this is certainly one of the places you want to visit before you leave.
And again, if you love archaeology, you won’t miss the chance to visit the just as famous Cobá Ruins, located about 30 miles inland from Tulum and considered among some of the most interesting Mayan ruins in the country. The area offers an authentic glimpse of this ancient population and its fascinating traditions, and will immediately give you a feeling of complete authenticity and realism. You will love the Grand Pyramid, the top attraction of this site, with its accessible top via a daunting climb-up of about 120 steps. That’s why you don’t have to forget your trekking shoes if you’re planning a visit to Cobá Ruins!
Finally, a special mention goes to Sian Ka’an, one of the best biosphere reserves in the world and definitely in the first positions of the sights that make Tulum the best place to stay in Mexico. This area, one of the largest in the country and a UNESCO World Heritage Site covers more than 650 thousand acres of coastal jungle and about 20% of the state of Quintana Roo’s land. Can you imagine? It’s like heaven on Earth!
By visiting Sian Ka’an you will have the chance to immerse yourself in what is still consider pure, virgin wilderness. The place is also home and sanctuary to countless species of tropical flora and fauna: the jaguar is only one of the many protected species living here, but you will also observe dolphins and, if you’re especially lucky, even spot some majestic manatees. Needless to say, Sian Ka’an is also famous for its coral reef that runs the length of the area: everything is vital and lively here, both above and underwater.
