Stay Healthy While Traveling to Tulum

Tulum is an unforgettable experience and is a very peaceful place to stay a few days, but if you are planning to stay more than only a few days you can plan your vacations full of physical activities, beautiful landscapes for walking in the mornings.

People in Tulum are super friendly, very welcome to travelers and to local people too. You will find a variety of hippies, vegetarians, solo travelers, group of friends, romantic couples and people from many cultures.

I write this article so you can have an idea of how you can have a healthy trip to Tulum, that is the perfect place, believe me, you have so many options.
Now before starting your vacations, I’ll recommend you to take a moment to plan your transportation to Tulum, your hotel and how your trip will be since all the guacamole and tequila can go out of the context if you know what I mean…

Fresh mornings are beautiful and very motivated, you can enjoy fresh fruit while you hit the ocean, take some pictures and relax in the sand.

If your plan is to spend more than just a few days in Tulum, a checklist of your favorite things to enjoy every day can be very helpful! Here an example:

  • Wake up with a very good attitude: this will make you mentalize to have a day full of activities and prepares you to have energy all day.
  • Take a morning walk beside the colorful sea of Tulum or practice some Yoga! Click here for 10 min. Yoga for beginners
  • Listen to your favorite songs in Spotify, you can prepare this before your trip and if you have the premium app you can listen to all your favorite songs without having wifi or internet in your phone.
  • Having an idea of your vacation goals can help you to use your time very good, for example, visit a specific place like the wonderful Ruins of Tulum, get to know local people of Tulum or from other countries, snorkel in the beach of Tulum, eat delicious Mexican tacos and many other options!

Make time to get energy for your body

Set an alarm maybe for 3 days of the week and stick to it, just 30 minutes of your time can make you feel so much better. This way you’ll be sure to keep up those exercise habits, feel so much better.

Maintain control over what you eat.
That means bringing your own food to eat while en route, going to the local grocery store, and simply ordering healthy dishes from the menu. When we’re forced to eat at the airport or on the road, our options are typically limited, try to choose food that makes your body feel good.

Your eyes are larger than your stomach.
This is funny but when we arrive at a restaurant in Tulum, everything looks so delicious and we want to try everything on the menu, go day by day, take it easy and enjoy every moment!

Making choices about food.
Hamburgers and nachos are delicious, but in Tulum, you will find a variety of healthy meals, for example, ceviche or shrimp tacos can make your day, give you enough energy and both had a lot of protein. Remember to add vegetables, fruit, and protein in your food.

Sure you`ll be drinking some beer and eating different types of local appetizers, try to eat in normal portions so at the end of the day you feel good and you tried many delicious meals.

Walk or Bike for transportation around Tulum.
Relaxing your body for two full weeks will take its toll, you can vary from drive to the restaurant down the block to simply walk there or go on the bicycle, is super fun and you will get to know so much better the places around.

Vacation actively.
When planning your vacation to Tulum, take your health into account. Go for an adventure trip, a snorkel trip, or a bike trip. If you are a beach vacation type of person, you can go running on the beach, swim, or surfing.

The main tourist area in Cancun is a safe place.

Don’t spend all your money in a resort:

hamton-Inn-Cancun

Holiday Inn Cancun Arenas

I think is better to book a low cost hotel than paying a lot of money for a resort because Cancun offers a lot of things to do and you are going to be most of the time outside. In this Cancun guide I recommend you to book in the Hotel Zone. My recommendations for good service and low budget hotels are: Holiday Inn Arenas, Real Inn, Hotel Sotavento and Yacht Club, Calypso Hotel Cancun, Hotel Cancun Clipper Club, Mayafair Design Hotel and the Grand Royal Lagoon.

Visit Isla Mujeres: Isla-Mujeres-ZiplineIsla-Mujeres-BeachIsla-Mujeres-Golf-cart

This is another great place for this Cancun guide, the Island is located 13 kilometers away from Cancun, to get there you must take a ferry in Puerto Juarez dock. This is a paradisiacal island because it has white sand beaches, water sports, the tour riding all Isla Mujeres in a golf cart and for the underwater museum where you can snorkel or dive. Tickets to Isla Mujeres costs about 15 dlls roundtrip, the ferry ride is great if you sit at the roof watching the ocean view and listening the music they play at the ride, it takes about 30 minutes to get to Isla. At night there are some beach bars and discos that you can go.

Scuba Dive:Diving-Cancun

Cancun is one of the best diving destinations in the world. If you have never dive before you are going to the right place, hundreds of beautiful reefs and color fishes are underwater, I love diving in Cancun cause the water is very clear and you can see long distance underwater. There are special diving packages for beginners, the first class starts in a pool and then you go to the ocean after knowing everything to dive correctly and safe. Scuba-dive-cancun

Nightlife: palazzo

Nightlife in Cancun is amazing. The discos are numerous and each one has a unique style. Depending on what kind of music you want to dance you will find it. In this Cancun Guide I recommend for female travelers “Palazzo”. I had a great time there, people from all over the world and great night shows. This is a glamorous club with pop and electronic music where most young travelers around the world go. Normally hotels with big groups of travelers invite them to Palazzo for its great atmosphere.

Playa del Carmen: coco-bongo

This is an ideal place for Female Travelers who want the most fun of all places close to Cancun. Here is located the famous Fifth Avenue: hundreds of bars, shopping stores and restaurants. If you want to bring souvenirs for your friends back home, you will find everything in the 5th Avenue. The best nightlife is in Playa de Carmen, Coco Bongo is the most famous for having artists and night shows, very fun and entertaining! Some other clubs are very nice on the seashore with famous djs.

Visit Chichen Itza:Chichen-itza-girlchichen-itza

You can not miss to visit one of the 7 wonders of the World “Chichen Itza“. It is the most famous Mayan archaeological site in Mexico for its history and constructions built by the ancients. There are several tours in the daytime where you can observe the pyramids, the culture and visit the cenote. Every tuesday at night, Chichen Itza Light and Sound offers a night show on the principal buildings of this site.
