There’s a fork in the path during your hike, a warm tropical breeze wafts through the air, bringing with it a refreshing aroma of lush vegetation and adventure. Opting for the northern path, you come upon a glorious turquoise pool of crystal waters: you’ve discovered the Gran Cenote, the same cenote that the ancient Mayans of old may have enjoyed as well. The best part? You’re in Tulum, a tranquil paradise located on the southern shores of the Yucatan Peninsula. Let’s explore a few of the enticing excursions Tulum has to offer, ideal for destination wedding detours in between celebrations:
Archaeological Zone of Tulum
With wondrous step pyramids such as El Castillo gracing the skies, as well as sprawling plazas, one can immerse themselves in a monumental time period filled with cultural, religious, and political advances. Only a short 10-minute drive from the elegant Dreams Tulum wedding resort, your thirst for adventure can be readily quenched via interactive day trips to the ruins.
Sip on a refreshing margarita prepared by professional mixologists, all while safely strapped into your lofty throne. Most importantly, make sure to get those cameras ready to go for those breathtaking backdrops. Choose to host your destination wedding at Bahia Principe Grand Tulum and enjoy complimentary shuttle options there and back from the tower.
Cenotes and Kaan Luum Lagoon
Accompanying its vast array of cenotes, Kaan Luum Lagoon is another unique body of water that has attracted the attention of tourists and locals alike. Nestled in a secluded area of the peninsula, the excursion’s crystal clear waters are far from your usual idea of a lagoon. Watch as colorful tropical flora and fauna dance around your feet while pacing atop an expansive sandbar. If you’re lucky, you might just catch a glimpse of playful Tropical Kingbirds skimming the surface for their daily catch.
Perhaps one of the most enticing features of Kaan Luum Lagoon is its natural mud baths. Due to the enriching qualities of Tulum’s soil, the lagoon’s sand bar showcases essential minerals and nutrients said to rejuvenate one’s complexion and eliminate wrinkles. With seemingly endless sunlight and private sitting locations, this magnificent oasis can spice up your spa day.
