The touristy sites are actually worth visiting.
Tulum, Mexico, has changed quite a bit since the first time I visited, but it's still one of my favorite places in the world. The town has topped every travel list in recent years, bringing more and more tourists from across the globe, which has led to an increase in hotels, restaurants, and boutique shops, as well as a significant uptick in prices. Everyone is (understandably) obsessed with the Mexican beach town tucked way down the Yucatán Peninsula, and with its culture, delicious cuisine, white sand beaches, and crystal-clear water, it's easy to see why. Here are all the tips and tricks you need to know before you head to Tulum.
