Tulum Beach, Tulum, Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya, Mexico

Tulum is 80 Miles (130km) south of Cancun along the Riviera Maya. The beaches and archaeological site are the big draws. The beaches of Tulum are among the prettiest anywhere I've seen in my life and the stretch just south of the archaeological area is wide, with white sand, and not overly crowded on this January day.

The powdery white sand was great for walking. Rumor has that they want to improve the local airport to international standards and make the area more of a tourist destination of first choice.  In 10-20 years they just might achieve that goal.

Not everyone was thinking about sunning, swimming, walking, or airports.

What an unexpected treat to find a Thai-inspired restaurant (at Mezzanine hotel/bar/restaurant) overlooking the beautiful beach for a nice bowl of pineapple mango curry - and it was even vegan - as were other menu options!

A wide range of accommodations is available - for example, you can stay at the Hostel Tulum Bed, Bike and Breakfast for $12 USD/night. Of course there are also many places you can stay for $100-500 a night. Some hotels even have 24-hour electricity and Wi-fi.
