Cabanas in Tulum area

by bobandmidge

I've been looking for beachside cabanas in the Tulum area. And quite often it appears that many of them look like they're not safe in terms of leaving your belongings in the cabanas.

Does anyone have any recommendations of some of the safer beachside cabana resorts?

It's been a number of years since I spent a few days in Tulum but if you look for cabanas with concrete foundation walls (so someone can't dig under the wall) and a lock on the door you should be OK, I'd think. I don't remember the name but the place I stayed had a small restaurant and a large, covered dance space. It was located a couple hundred yards south of the ruins walking down the beach. Communal shower. Given a candle or two to light the cabana at night. Sand falls through the thatch roof. Beautiful beach.

Travel Tips for Tulum

Flying Volodores

by Blatherwick

At the bus stop for the Tulum ruins you can catch one of the performances by the Volodores. These colourfully dressed men spiral upside down from a pole 60 feet in the air while only attached by a rope around one ankle. One lucky guy gets to play a flute at the top until all members reach the bottom. This is well worth watching if you have not seen it before. They do it roughly every 15 minutes.

Cenotes

by emilienoelle

Cenotes (pronounced SeeNoTays) are underground rivers which come to the surface as they prepare to join with the Caribbean Sea. They can be found all over the Tulum area. Cenotes are true marvels of nature. They are also from where the ancient Mayans got fresh drinking water, allowing their civilization to become highly advanced thousands of years ago. There are many parks which allow you to swim and snorkel in the cenotes (Xel-Ha, X-Caret, Hidden Worlds) and to enjoy the abundance of sealife that live in them (fish, crabs, turtles, rays). In fact, being in a cenote is a little like swimming in a tropical fish tank. My favorite thing about the cenotes though is that they are cold! They are the best places to swim and cool down from the jungle's heat. They stay cold all the time due to the fact that they are fed from underground. We were especially lucky because the Sunscape Resort where we stayed had its very own cenote. Very nice!

Sun lotion

by Lady_Disdain

Don't forget to take a good sun lotion - and to apply it liberally.

Walking around in the sun, with few trees, can easily lead to sun burn. And the cool sea breeze may just take your mind off the sun until it is too late. Been there, done that!

Don't forget the tip of the ears, feet and back of the knees and neck. They are specially painful and easily forgoten...

Coba.
This is Maya for 'water stirred by the wind.' These ruins are a 35 min. drive northwest of Tulum out in the jungle, so bring your bug spray. In it's heyday from AD 800 - Ad 1100 there were as many as 55 000 residents. The jungle has overtaken most of the buildings, it's estimated that there are approx. 6500 structures of which only 5% have been excavated. You walk along through the jungle and see large mounds which are still to be uncovered. This pic is of Nohuch Mul. It's the largest pyramid at 42 meters in height and well worth the climb.

From the ruins to the town

by Dabs

You can get from the ruins to the town of Tulum either by colectivo or by taxi.

The taxis at the entrance of the ruins seemed expensive so we walked back out to the highway to catch a colectivo. A taxi pulled up and said that he would take us for $2US, the colectivo would have been a minimum of 10 pesos each so we hopped in the taxi.
