Tulum

 
Tulum is a small city located 80 miles south of the resort town of Cancun in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. Tulum Mexico is the combination of archaeological site, the pueblo (or town), and the "hotel zone" (or strip of beach lined with small cabanas). One could say that there are three distinct zones making up what people commonly refer to as Tulum. TulumSeveral years ago, Tulum Pueblo was a quiet village located about 1 mile from the archaeological site, and tourism outside of the ruins was limited to a few small shops and simple cabanas on the beach. As of 2005, population of Tulum Pueblo has grown to over 10,000 permanent inhabitants. The "hotel zone" of boutique hotels on the Tulum beach has grown to over 40 small hotels, most of them cabanas built in the traditional Mayan style with thatched palm roofs. The hotel zone is mostly filled with tourists, whereas Tulum Pueblo is mostly a Mexican town, with some tourists eating in the restaurants and bars at night. Tulum is one of the last unspoiled stretches of Mexican Caribbean. The world's second largest barrier reef passes just off-shore from Tulum and it is also a departure point for dive trips to the atoll reef system. It is designated a Mexican national reef preserve and is an excellent site for snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing.
