The Select Cities
Great beaches? Check. Great food? Check. Great shopping? Check. Amazing hotels, amazing activities ... The list goes on. Tulum just might be the most perfect place on earth. Have a look at our favorite places to eat, sleep, shop and the best things to do. And then get ready to book your trip, because it really is that good.
A few tips on Tulum:
- The only footwear you need are flip flops. Sand is everywhere and heels are dumb, so are regular sandals. Sneakers aren't a bad idea if you're planning to exercise.
- While most places use filtered water, I would say bottled is still best. Even for brushing your teeth.
- Bring small unmarked bills with you. Seriously: cash is king, and every cab ride seems to cost about $7. You'll be hard-pressed to find someone to give you change, so the more singles you have, the cheaper things will be.
- The other thing is, you have a long ride from the Cancun Airport to Tulum. But it's shorter if you have your driver stop at the 7-11 right outside of the airport for beers and chiccarones. Yes, really.
