Health and safety are now travel priorities, but adventure and history remain top goals for many travelers.
That makes Tulum, Mexico, an ideal destination for your next vacation, where you can explore Mayan ruins while still relaxing on a stunning beach and practising safety with the right choice of resort.
Tulum, Mexico is located south of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. It has a beach strip and the popular visitors’ site of the Tulum Ruins, located on the main highway as you head south to Tulum. The Ruins can be accessed by walking, bicycle, or taking a taxi.
In fact, a visit to the Mayan ruins can be capped off with a visit to the beach below, as these unique ruins sit on an ocean bluff with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. This historical site truly has to be seen to be experienced.
The Tulum ruins are also close to the beach town of Tulum, and the Tulum beach strip is on a small road that runs the length of the beach. Follow it to an arch, which is the access to the Sian Ka’an biosphere.
While staying in Tulum, you’ll also be close to another famous site of the Mayans, a community of people who have inhabited areas of Mexico and Central America since around 1800 BC. Immerse yourself further in their history with a trip less than 100 miles inland from Tulum to one of the New Wonders of the World. The sacred city of Chichen Itza is another stunning display, featuring the Kukulkan Pyramid, which is 75 feet tall and was built for astronomical and sacrificial purposes.
It’s easy to stay near these historical centers as the Unlimited Vacation Club has several properties perfect for your next holiday.
For instance, Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa offers a location right on the beach, with activities for kids and adults alike. There’s also gourmet cuisine on site, pools, a spa, and complimentary green fees at the nearby Riviera Maya Golf Club.
Or choose the adults-only romance of Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya, located north of Tulum but still close, and perfectly situated along the famed white-sand beaches and calm, clear waters of Akumal, winner of a TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award for one of the “Top 10 Beaches in Mexico.”
At either resort, it’s easy to arrange visits to the town of Tulum, the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum, and Chichen Itza. You can also visit the eco-adventure park of Xel-Ha, or take a day trip to Playa Del Carmen or the city of Cancun.
Both resorts also offer the safety and security of the Unlimited Vacation Club’s CleanComplete Verification™ practices for health and safety. Starting with check-in processes, and including room cleaning, sanitation of common areas and dining locations, and behind-the-scenes rigor, you’ll have peace of mind that these properties are looking after the health and safety of guests and staff.
So have a safe holiday and immerse yourself in Mayan history with a visit to an Unlimited Vacation Club property in Tulum or Akumal, Mexico.
