Details & Review

Review: Palms Tulum is an apartment-style hotel with an indoor pool. The rooms are very spacious, and there’s also a kitchen and large living room. It is located in Tulum Pueblo, the tow, so getting to the beach is a 30 minute bike ride each way. The hotel offers free bikes for guests.

Review: This is a must in Tulum! Just go. You’ll thank me later. At the entrance, there’s a separate line for tourists so it’s really fast.

Review

Review: This beach lives up to its name. While there, you can also go snorkeling and or take a boat ride to see the ruins from the Caribbean Ocean. We did the latter, and it was incredible! Our guide walked us through the history of Tulum and the ruins.

The heat is unbearable so biking here may be torturous for you. You can take a cab instead.
