Tulum is a sleepy coastal village at the southern end of the now burgeoning Riviera Maya, and is a stark contrast to the densely populated all-inclusive resort-filled coastline characteristic of the northern region. Famous for the Tulum ruins and its endless stretches of beautiful white sand beaches, the tranquillity here is idyllic.
The weather in Tulum is mainly tropical with high temperatures and humidity nearly year round and a very tropical wet season which runs from June through to October. Temperatures range from an average 75°F during winter months to as high as 90°F during the sweltering summer months of July through September.
Sunshine is abundant and even rain showers do not always last long before those sought after rays peek through the clouds to bronze the many sun and sea seekers that visit here. This is a perfect place in which to get away from it all and enjoy water sports like kite surfing, diving, and snorkeling. The surrounding sub-tropical jungle is home to ancient ruins and natural fresh water wells called “cenotes”. Local, specialised operators offer ecotourism, combining activities that include bird watching, kayaking and local Mayan traditions.
So if you are looking for things to do in Tulum be assured that the climate here is just what you would expect from a tropical Caribbean paradise.
