Why You Must Visit Tulum

You don't often hear about The Yucatan Peninsula being on anyone's bucket list place. But after my weekend in Tulum, I think it should be on the top of the list for anyone looking for culture, adventure. and a small, cool beach town. If you’re not interested in passing the day away in a hammock with a cold coconut and good book, extraordinary Mayan Ruins and several fresh-water cenotes are just a short drive from the main town. Every resort on the beach offers kite-surfing lessons, and yoga classes throughout the day, and the main road has shops full of unique goods from local designers. It's baby Bali, only three hours from Manhattan!
