On the Road Again: A Trip to Tulum May 03, 2017 17:00

Perfect tropical weather, beautiful white sand beaches, delicious local food, and a distinct bohemian style, make the town of Tulum a must visit! Read on to see what do, what to see, and what to wear while vacationing in this unique Mexican beach town!

What to Do:

Enjoy the Beach at Zamas

Spending time in Tulum means spending many afternoons at Zamas. With the colorful tables and chairs, delicious food, and beach side lounge chairs you will never want to leave this spot. Just order a drink or their famous huevos rancheros and you can lounge all afternoon like a hotel guest!

Check out the Private Beaches South of Town

By bike or taxi you can go 20 minutes south of Tulum beach towards Sian Ka'an Nature Reserve. After you pass the stone archway there is a beach entrance just down the road. You can grab food or drink at the local beach club and the beach is almost entirely empty for miles each direction!

What to See:

Tulum Ruins:

The ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum are located right on the cliffs a 15 minute bike ride from town. Get there an hour or two before closing to beat the heat and the crowds. We stayed right until closing to see the beautiful sunset behind the ruins!

Swim in the Cenotes

There are hundreds of hidden cenotes near Tulum and our local favorites are the Cenotes Dos Ojos! The best way to see the Cenotes are through a snorkel tour booked in town. They will pick you up, guide you to the cenotes, and show you just where to snorkel. The caves are filled with beautiful stalactites, fish, and sometimes even fruit bats!

What to Where:

To stay cool in the humid heat of the tropics we love the Cadence Cold Shoulder Dress in Navy! This open shoulder dress is perfect layered over a swimsuit or worn as a dress for a night out. 

Cadence Dress

Pair it with a simple lace up summer sandal like this pair from Madewell for an effortless chic look!

Finish off the look with a neutral straw tote that can fit your towel, sunscreen, and a good book. All that's left to do is book your trip!
