The Magical Beaches of Tulum

I don’t know about you, but I am a beach person. And my favorite beaches are in the Riviera Maya area of Mexico. And my favorite beach there is in the town of Tulum. Most people are aware of Tulum for its famous Mayan ruins, but once they visit they keep coming back for the beach. I’ve been going for close to 20 years and it still looks as blue and pristine as the first time I laid eyes on it.

This is the quintessential postcard shot of Tulum. It’s taken from inside the Tulum Archeological Zone. You can tour the Mayan ruins for a couple hours and when your done, enjoy a nice swim in the turquoise water.

I found this boat, Lourdes, while walking along the beach just as the sun was about to set. I was actually looking to hire a boat captain to take me to the Mayan Ruins at dawn so I could capture the ruins facing the rising sun. Yes, I was trying to break into a historical landmark. I had an artistic vision I was trying to fulfill. Well, my plan didn’t work. None of the boat captains would dare be my accomplice. I ended up getting in line to the ruins at 9 a.m. just like the tourists do. As my niece would say, “Fail!”

Yes, it really does look like that in person. Can’t wait to return one day to this magical beach.
