Exploring Tulum: Adventure and Relaxation in Mexico

Alicia Toublanc —

Tulum... A name that immediately evokes adventure and escape. We had the opportunity to visit this Mexican gem during a photoshoot for our latest collection, aptly named "Tulum Escape." In this guide, we'll take you through our favorite spots in Tulum. Join us for a journey blending adventures and relaxation.


Discovering Cenotes: For Snorkeling Enthusiasts

Tulum's authentic atmosphere is defined by its bohemian vibe, pristine beaches, and the stunning cenotes abundant in the region. These cenotes, natural sinkholes formed by the collapse of limestone bedrock, are a ubiquitous feature in Tulum. Swimming in their turquoise blue waters is a relaxing experience we particularly cherished. Among them, we highly recommend the Dos Ojos cenote, located 30 minutes north of downtown Tulum. Comprising two interconnected chambers with an underwater passage, it offers an enchanting experience for swimmers, snorkelers, and divers alike. You'll be captivated by the scenery of stalagmites and stalactites, illuminated by rays of light.

Biking Adventure: Unearthing Hidden Treasures

To explore Tulum, renting a bike and embarking on an adventure at your own pace is a must. This approach allows you to fully immerse yourself in the environment and uncover hidden gems. Take a leisurely ride along the beach on the bike path or head to the Tulum ruins. The average price for renting a bike in Tulum for 24 hours ranges from 200 to 250 Mexican pesos per bike, approximately 15 to 20 CAD dollars.

Local Cuisine in La Veleta District

The culinary delights of Tulum are abundant, offering a variety of dishes from traditional Mexican cuisine to international flavors. For those looking to venture off the beaten path, La Veleta is the district to explore. Here, you'll discover restaurants that combine exotic cuisine with a chic ambiance. Fresh fish tacos, zesty ceviche, avocado-based dishes, and refreshing margaritas will immerse you in the essence of Tulum's cuisine. If you're keen to savor Mexican specialties, we recommend Maria con H - Cocina Mexicana.


Specialists in Relaxation and Meditation

Tulum is also renowned for its unique sensory experiences that invite you to unwind, recharge, and reconnect with yourself. Treat yourself to a meditation session by the sea, immerse yourself in a soothing sound bath, or try a traditional sweat lodge experience in a Mayan tent. Many places in Tulum offer these experiences aimed at soothing your mind and revitalizing your body, all within a magical setting.

Just writing this article makes us eager to return and relive these unforgettable moments. What also struck us is Tulum's commitment to nature preservation. New constructions in Tulum now embrace a strong dedication to environmental conservation, preserving numerous trees in their projects. This approach harmoniously balances tourism development and the safeguarding of the region's natural beauty.
