Tulum is the destination that everyone is talking about on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico. My mom was shocked to learn how popular it was now, she told me of the unspoiled beaches and town of Tulum she had visited 30 years ago. While tourists have discovered this gem, thanks to Instagram, influencers, and word of mouth, it is still 100 percent worth coming here for a great vacation!

reputation as a dangerous, dirty, and overcrowded metropolis hardly may sound
appealing to American, Canadian, and European tourists that prefer the turquoise
