Watching the pelicans and other sea birds swoop and dive along Turtle Cove is a favorite pastime for many of our guests, who punctuate the day’s end with a walk out to the famous rocks to watch the sun set into the jungle and the moon rise over the sea.
For those interested in getting out and about, visitors of all ages will find plenty of amazing things to do in and around Tulum, from swimming to kayaking, scuba diving, kiteboarding to deep-sea and fly fishing. Learn Spanish, do yoga, savor the complex flavors of traditional Mexican cuisine, take a lesson in salsa dance, or visit the local cenotes, fresh-water sinkholes with a mystical history. Tulum’s well-preserved beachfront Mayan ruins—a pre-Colombian city dating back more than 700 years—are just minutes away, and the ancient ruins at Chichen Itza and Coba are an easy day trip.
From turtles, dolphins, and coral reefs to monkeys, mangroves, and butterflies, the surrounding areas are teeming with natural splendor, making Tulum a marvelous place to explore and encounter the wonders of the natural world.
