Tulum, one of Riviera Maya’s most popular Mayan archaeological sites, is the only known Mayan city built on the coast. Tulum may look familiar: It’s no wonder that this dramatic location has been frequently photographed, with the stone buildings looking out over the turquoise Caribbean. Running along the ocean are a number of the Riviera Maya’s most inviting places to spend the night, from yoga retreats and eco-chic hotels to small inns there’s something here for every type of traveler. Just a little inland from the ancient Mayan city is the modern-day town of Tulum, a welcoming low-key place where you can check out locals’ favorite restaurants and stores.
