Tulum, Mexico is our favorite beach destination in México. Period. The rustic beach accommodations, vegan cuisine, Mayan history, the turquoise cenote waters or the jungle vibes make Tulum so magical. There are plenty of Instagram photo opportunities in Tulum, but these are our favorites!
1. Ven a la Luz
📍Carr. Tulum a Boca Paila Km. 7.5 Zona Costera, 77760
“Ven a la Luz”, a 33 foot (10 meter) tall sculpture made with steel, wood, rope and greenery, is an artwork of the popular South African artist Daniel Popper, known for his mega-sculptures. The sculpture in Tulum was revealed for the first time at the festival “Art with Me” in 2018.
Ahau Hotel announced it will be relocated in its new sculpture park in October 2021.
