Tulum, Mexico Resorts

Tulum, Mexico Resorts
Tulum offers two of Mexico's best features in one place: gorgeous white-sand beaches and spectacular Mesoamerican archaeological sites. For adventure travelers, the sparkling coastal waters and numerous "cenote" water-filled sinkhole offer plentiful diving and snorkeling opportunities, while the wildlife-filled jungle of the Sian Ka'an Biospheric Reserve is an easy day trip away. Excellent resorts abound in Tulum, providing comfort and convenient access to the area's myriad attractions.

Maya Tulum

This resort offers idyllic accommodations in thatched-roof bungalows located right on the beach or in a manicured garden with ocean views. The bungalows have private patios, tiled bathrooms and an open shower area. The restaurant at the Maya Tulum features vegetarian and seafood dishes, while fruit smoothies are the specialty at the bar.

Guests can take advantage of a spa and yoga classes, and the resort offers a different excursion each day of the week to a nearby nature or archaeological site. Trails.com readers should note the Wednesday trip to the Maya ruins at Coba, which includes a bike tour of the site.

Zamas

Nature lovers will appreciate Zamas not only for its organic thatch-roofed huts tucked into the greenery along a white sand beach, but also for its eco-friendly approach that includes using solar and wind power and green cleaning products. It's a smaller, low-key resort option that boasts of a "rustic-chic ambiance" and "hammock culture." There's a dive shop on site and the staff can arrange local sightseeing and recreational tours.

Zamas' Que Fresco! restaurant features seafood dishes like lobster and snapper prepared with Caribbean and Mayan spices. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well, and fresh fruits and vegetables are a key part of all dishes.
