From incredible cenotes to ancient ruins and serene rivers, these destinations offer a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation for travelers seeking to immerse themselves in the beauty of Tulum and the surrounding area.

1. Kaan Luum Cenote: Less than a 10 minute drive from the center of Tulum, Kaan Luum is a gem known for its mesmerizing turquoise waters and tranquil surroundings. The perfect place to spend a few hours swimming, sunbathing, or practicing yoga on the dock. Easy to get to and so close to Tulum.

2. Muyil River Float and Ruins: This is one of the best things to do just outside Tulum. Located in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, just south of Tulum. Drift along the tranquil waters of the Muyil river and soak in the natural beauty of the surrounding mangroves. The Mayan ruins of Muyil are also close by and definitely worth a visit.

3. Coba Ruins: Step back in time and explore the ancient Mayan city of Coba, located about 45 minutes from Tulum. Here you can enjoy a lovely walk through the jungle as you make your way to Nohoch Mul pyramid for breathtaking panoramic views of the lush jungle canopy. Bicycles are also available to rent. One of the best walking paths in Riviera Maya and not to be missed!

4. Xcacel Beach: A more secluded beach off the beaten path, Xcacel offers the perfect setting for a relaxing day by the sea. The entrance fee is about 40 pesos at the time of writing, parking is free and abundant and if you want to find relaxation and tranquility without the party vibe, this place is it. Xcacel is about 20 minutes outside of Tulum.

5. Playa del Carmen: For a different vibe, head to Playa del Carmen, located about 1 hour from Tulum. Fifth Avenue is the place to be as a visitor, with its eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and bars. So much action here! Soak up the lively ambiance and immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of this coastal town.
