Our Favorite Things To Do in Tulum

One: Get up early and watch the sunrise.

Each morning is different but equally magical, and it’s the best time of day to stick your feet in the surf.

Two: Take long runs or walks along the beach. There’s nothing like the feeling of sand between your toes…and it’s not the worst idea to get move a little bit to counteract all the chips and guacamole.

Three: Speaking of chips and guacamole…eat and drink to your heart’s content. The food and cocktails are SO good.

A couple of our favorites – Safari, for a casual vibe where the guacamole is served with jicama and the best tacos are made out of an airstream trailer (Safari: we only make a limited number of shrimp mole tacos each day. Us: We’ll take them all.)

And Casa Jaguar for a romantic, candlelit dinner.

Four: Visit the Mayan Ruins.

We went back for a second time and they were just as special. To see more, check out our post here.

Five: Bike around as much as possible. The roads aren’t that great, and many of the cabs are a little worn out, so biking is a great form of transportation.

Six: Spend plenty of time at the beach.

The white, cushy sand and teal-blue water make an amazing backdrop for a drink and a good book, followed by a cool down in the waves.

Seven: Shop, shop, shop til you drop, drop, drop. More on that here.

Eight: Take in all the great photographic surroundings. They’re everywhere.

When we go to Tulum, we always try to strike a balance between activities and relaxation.

There are a lot of trips where we plan our days out, put together an itinerary, and book tours. Not so much in Tulum. Perhaps it’s that by the time we go we’re so worn out by the cold and snow that we have no energy to plan every minute, or maybe the perfect combination of heat and humidity suppresses our normal energy levels. Regardless, we wouldn’t change anything about our time there, except for the days when we voluntarily leave to return home.
