Tulum is the area that is the farthest South from Cancun on the Riviera and is the most remote and 'hip' community with coffee shops, fine seaside dining and spas and boutiques.
It’s known for its beaches and well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city. The main building is a large stone structure called El Castillo (castle), perched on a rocky cliff above the white sand beach and turquoise sea. Near the ruins is the Parque Nacional Tulum, a coastal area with mangroves and cenotes (natural limestone sinkholes). The town of Tulum is a few miles from the beaches, offering the choice of the bustle of town or the seclusion of the beach areas.
Cell phone service and wifi is improving every day but may be spotty in some areas. If that's a good thing, Tulum is the place for you. Better hurry and get here quickly ;-)
