A vacation at a magical hotel in Tulum in the gorgeous Riviera Maya is all about escaping the Hi-Tech "connected" world, and getting back to nature and the beach is the perfect place to do this. Enjoy a relaxing massage while you watch the waves crashing offshore on the second largest barrier reef in the world, go snorkeling or diving in the warm turquoise Caribbean Sea, explore the jungle and the hidden beaches.

All beaches in Tulum are public, although getting access to them in most cases can only be achieved by access through private land or beach clubs. There exist a number of beach clubs in Tulum operating along the hotel area. Here you will find changing rooms, bathrooms, lockers, beach gear for rent, beach chairs and restaurants/bars.

Tulum beach road and hotel area takes you to Sian-Ka´an Biosphere and Punta Allen where you will find some virgin beaches. You can access the beach by walking through an opening or access point from the road.

Tulum nude beaches

Some Tulum beach clubs accept topless and, in others, nude sunbathing.

If you are interested in Tulum nude beaches, then you should consider staying at Cabanas Copal or the more upscale Cabanas at Azulik during your holiday in this amazing holiday spot. Both of these Tulum cabana hotels are located right on the beach.

Nude sunbathing on Tulum beaches is very discreet, people who sunbath nude and topless then tend to cover up when they walk back to their rooms.

Papaya Playa Project

In Tulum there are no nightclubs. However, some hotels and restaurants hold parties at night, where you will see all the international local and young community hanging out. You will love this style of party, a different way to have fun with a big international family: Mexicans, Americans, Italians, French, Argentinians and other nationalities gather together.

The best place for hanging out on a Saturday night is Papaya Playa Project, the epicenter for DJs and performing artists.

The restaurants in Tulum are well-known for their original concept. Each restaurant has something magical that you will be pleased to discover. Every restaurant has a different concept, but all of them have something in common: organic food.

Tulum weather

The meteo in Tulum  is always good for a beach vacation, but we recommend the period between Christmas and Easter, especially if you are coming from a cold climate. You will find the perfect temperature (between 23 and 30 celsius).
