The history of the Maya continues to draw tourists to Mexico from all over the world. And one of the most important stops on the tourist trail is the gorgeous Tulum beach-side ruins. Hovering over the Caribbean Sea, these ancient temples and structures are particularly eye-catching.

Visitors can opt to take guided tours to learn more about the ancient city, which was once a center of trade for jade and turquoise, or simply admire the ruins from the waters below.

VbJM Tip: Journey Mexico can organize an off-hours visit to the Tulum archeological site, avoiding the crowds that flock there daily.

WHO INSPIRES YOU? We love to find people who support and lift up others. After meeting with travel friends in NYC last week, I realized how important all of these people are in my life. They inspire me, are my sounding boards, teach me new things on a regular basis, and are just genuinely good people. And just because I can’t see everyone in person all the time, I’m going to give shout outs to others who inspire me on IG. Follow these fabulous IG accounts because they all do amazing things! @stuffedsuitcase @we3travel @2traveldads @nobackhome @wanderlust.crew @clarissalaskey @latravelgal @mominzurich @travelbabbo @mommytravels @walkingontravels @lajollamom @twotwentyone @ourfamilypassport @vagabond3 @strollerinthecity @thetravellingmom @glimpseguides @solomomtakesflight @luxerecess and @susanpazera I am sure I missed a ton of people so apologies in advance!

Distance: 62km/39 miles

Time in car: 55 mins

The sprawling ancient Maya city of Coba hit its peak from 600AD to 900AD with a population of around 50,000 people. The ancient civilization left plenty of ruins, some 6,000 in total, but not all are open to the public now.

Visit the Coba ruins today and you’re bound to see plenty of tourists on bicycles, using pedal power to cover the expansive site in less time. Undoubtedly, Coba’s most popular ruin is the Nohoch Mul pyramid, a giant structure that visitors can climb for stunning views over the jungle treetops.


Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve

Distance: 80km/50 miles

Time in car: 1 hour 40 mins

The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is one of Mexico’s most important protected areas and home to a plethora of wild and exotic animals. Hiding within the UNESCO World Heritage Site and its many habitats are jaguars, pumas, manatees, dolphins, spider monkeys, crocodiles, and turtles plus hundreds of different bird species.

Visitors can take a boat ride through the lagoons and mangroves, visit a Muyil-Maya temple, and float along the lazy river.

VbJM Tip: Combine a stay at Casa Napa with a few nights in Mukan, a 10-bed luxury villa nestled within the Sian Ka’an.



Distance: 67km/ 42 miles

Time in car: 1 hour 50 mins inc. ferry

The gorgeous Mexican-Caribbean island of Cozumel is a picture-perfect day escape from Casa Napa. Head to Playa El Cielo, a white-sand beach, for a gorgeous day relaxing and cooling off in crystal-clear waters.

Perhaps the greatest draw to Cozumel is its wonderful snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities. Local sites, including Santa Rosa Reef, Paso del Cedral Reef, and Palancar Reef – all great places to swim among the tropical fish who call the waters around Cozumel home.


Yal-Ku lagoon snorkeling

Distance: 17km/ 10.5 miles

Time in car: 20 mins

A short drive from Casa Napa is Yal-Ku Lagoon, a protected snorkeling area with clear waters and plenty of animal life. The waters of Yal-Ku take on a magical glimmer where the freshwater of the lagoon meets the connecting Caribbean Sea.

It is big enough to spend a large portion of the day exploring its many hiding places, while its hammocks and chill-out areas are the perfect place to rest after spending time exploring the waters.
