What To Do on a Day Trip to Tulum

1. Morning: tour the Tulum Ruins. The ruins open at 8 am. Enjoy the ruins while it is quiet before the tour buses get there, and you avoid the heat of the day. Take water and a hat. You can walk around the shops in the parking area looking for souvenirs, but don't spend all your pesos yet!

2. Lunch at Zamas, some of our staff's favorite things to order: fish tacos, tostadas, pescado de dia (fish of the day)! Take your time to enjoy the view of the Caribbean. And yes, if you don't like seafood Zama's has chicken.

3. Shopping. Across the road from Zamas is Mixik. Our friend Sally owns it, and all of her art, textiles, crafts, are all 100% hecho en Mexico! One of a kind items. My personal favorite place to buy folk art.

4. A walk on the famous Tulum beach, an umbrella drink and a siesta! Ziggy's Beach Club is the place to go. Just head south on the Tulum beach road, and it is next to Cabanas Tulum. You can lounge on the beach and they will bring you a tasty frozen concoction to enjoy. Ziggy's has great food too if you need a snack!

5. Snorkel or swim Gran Cenote. A plunge in the clear fresh waters of a cenote will help you to rinse, refresh and re-group for your drive or ride back to your hotel or vacation rental.

Bonus tip off the beach: Want to eat like a local? Jose on our staff lives in the pueblo of Tulum. He recommends, the fish or shrimp tacos at Urge Taquito! Located on Hwy 307, just 200 meters north of the San Francisco grocery store.
