Tulum lies on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, about 80 miles south of Cancun. Once a sleepy fishing town, it has morphed into a popular beach destination, with its turquoise waters, verdant jungles, and powdery white sand. Tulum is also home to mystical caves, rare wildlife, dozens of swimming holes, and perfectly-preserved Mayan ruins.
Despite its old-world charm, Tulum abounds with high-end shopping, wellness facilities, a phenomenal food scene, and a wide range of accommodations that offer almost anything a solo traveler, whether seasoned or new, could want. The bustling 5-km Zona Hotelera is where you will find some of the best resorts in Tulum for singles.
