Tulum ruins trip at one of our last retreats
Tulum: Tulum is a town on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico´s Yucatan Peninsula. Famous with celebrities, yoga enthusiasts and relaxation seekers… It boasts a spectacular coastline – with all its confectioner – sugar coated sands, cobalt water and balmy breezes- makes it one of the top beaches in Mexico and the world. Where else can you get all that and a dramatically situated Maya ruin? There is also excellent cave and cavern diving, fun cenotes and amazing restaurants and bars. Tulum offers the perfect combination of total relaxation, tranquillity and seclusion, yet with plenty activities on offer. The weather is perfect in December, average temperatures are around 79 F during the day (26 C). There is usually very little rain, and if then it lasts for a couple of hours only. Tulum is approximately a 90 min. drive from Cancun International Airport (CUN).
