The beaches of Tulum

  • Paradise Beach
  • Fishermen’s Beach
  • Esperanza Beach
  • Tankah Creek

In case you missed the beaches of Tulum, everything you need to know, here’s a quick reminder. This magical place is made up of incredible beaches that you won’t see just anywhere. The most popular and well known are Playa Paraíso, Pescadores, Esperanza and Tankah cove.

Playa Paraiso is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the region, with fine white sands and transparent waters where you will see lots of fish swimming.

We advise you to stop by Playa Pescadores and contact an agency or freelance staff to take one of their great tours to specific snorkeling areas.

You also have to visit Esperanza Beach, a wonderful beach that is part of the hotel with the same name. Although it is a resort that follows an ecological line in which only 30 people can be accommodated, we invite you to visit the hotels in Cancun of the Oasis hotel group, which we are sure you will also want to visit.

Finally we have the Tankah cove, a kind of cenote or natural pool in the middle of the jungle, perfect to stop for a great day with the whole family.

The cenotes of Tulum

  • Cenotes Azul Tulum
  • Dos Ojos Cenote

Like Paraíso beach, the Gran Cenote is one of the most visited and visited in the region for its amazing beauty, location and all the activities you can do in it.

Cenote Azul is not far behind in terms of charm, and is ideal for children because of its shallow depth, varied pools and its proximity to Playa del Carmen.

Also not to be forgotten is the Dos Ojos cenote, a curious name that comes from the two entrances that resemble eye sockets (actually two entrances to the cenote). If you want to know more, we recommend you to take a look at some of the cenotes in Tulum.
