Located an hour and a half from Cancun on the sparkling waters of the Riviera Maya, Tulum has garnered a reputation in recent years, not only for harboring some of the best beaches in Mexico, but also as a wellness destination. Healing treatments, local and medicinal foods, and a vibrant local community have collided into forming a melting pot of spiritual and physical rejuvenation.
There are many things to do in Tulum, but the Mayan clay spas, inventive meditation courses and the world-famous “temazcal” sweat lodges have earned their place amongst cultural and natural highlights, such as the Tulum ruins and the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve close by.
The copious amounts of yoga classes allow visitors to practice strength and flexibility exercises. Learn the art of breathing techniques, where physical and mental health are interrelated. Perform asanas, learn poses, self-defense techniques, meditation and participate in Pilates workshops.
Elsewhere, the restaurant scene is filled with vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and grain-free establishments and specialty houses, that offer some of the best cuisine and dining experiences in all of the country.
If you are looking for a personal getaway and a memorable meditative experience, away from the Mayan ceremonies, ruins and jungle tours of the Riviera Maya, spending your time at one of the many spas in Tulum, is the perfect choice for an experience which balances wellness and healing, with the integration of mind, body and soul.
