Weekend Escape to Tulum



Days: 4


A luxury weekend escape to Tulum is the ideal way to forget the daily grind and unwind in the paradise of the Riviera Maya. Far more than a simple sun-and-sand getaway, this long weekend in Tulum boasts bucket list-worthy adventures and free time to explore the region’s great destinations.

Begin this four-day vacation with an unforgettable off-hours private tour to the Tulum beach-side ruins. See the temples before the crowds arrive and admire the sunrise over this ancient city. Next, head to the sprawling archeological site of Coba for a further dive into the ancient Maya world.

Follow that with some free time to discover Tulum before a private transfer to explore the delights of Playa del Carmen. Throughout the vacation, stay in Maria del Mar Tulum, a luxury boutique that overlooks the aquamarine Caribbean Sea.
