Tulum sits 130 km south of Cancun, Mexico nestled between white-sand Caribbean beaches and lush tropical Yucatan jungle. As a result, it’s a favorite destination for nature-loving travelers. So, it comes as no surprise there are some fantastic Tulum glamping spots to experience.
The Yucatan Peninsula is full of natural wonders and beauty. Certainly, Tulum is a place where you can spend your days playing or relaxing on a pristine beach, swimming in mystical cenotes, exploring ancient Mayan ruins, and having epic jungle adventures.
Meanwhile, evenings in Tulum are best-spent enjoying delicious meals and creative cocktails at one of the many bars and restaurants along the beach or in town before retiring to your Tulum glamping site to sleep comfortably surrounded by nature.
Tulum is small but accommodations are generally divided into two main areas: Puebla (town) and the beach. But, there are also glamping sites near the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve which is not far from the famous Tulum ruins.
Glamping in Mexico is very different than say glamping in Ireland or glamping in Washington state due to climate and landscape. However, the types of Glamping structures can be very similar. Glamping types in Tulum include luxury tents, cabanas, geodesic domes, and even tree houses and are situated in unique settings such as jungle, cenotes, and right on the beach.
Here are a few favorite spots to get you started with your Tulum glamping vacation plans:
