Shopping for a family-friendly investment property in Tulum can feel like a challenge, especially if you haven’t traveled much in the Riviera Maya region with your kids in tow. Here, we’re going to give you the basic tools to locate the best family-oriented vacation homes in the area.
Things to Do in Tulum for Families
First, it’s important to encourage you to get away from the “all-inclusive” mentality while visiting this part of the Riviera Maya as a family. Although the big-box resorts will generally offer a staggering list of activities, the only way to really experience the area’s rich culture is to venture out and explore. The best way to do this is to book a stay at a smaller, more exclusive option like Kasa Hotel + Residences, which is located in the exclusive Aldea Zamá neighborhood and offers a handful of carefully selected local experiences that go beyond the standard all-inclusive offerings.
Choose between spending a day exploring the breathtaking Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, which lies just south of downtown, or spend a half day on the Sian Ka’an Muyil float tour, which will take the entire family on a guided walk through ancient Mayan ruins that ends in an unforgettable lazy river float through crystal clear freshwater channels. Other family-friendly excursions include:
- Snorkeling in the Mexican Caribbean Sea
- Touring the ancient Mayan sites of Chichen Itza or Coba
- Scuba diving, kitesurfing or paddle boarding
- Fly fishing and sport fishing
- Cenote tours
