About Tulum, Mexico... Home of Meztli Spanish Language School

Tulum is located south of Cancún and Playa del Carmen on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico's state of Quintana Roo. The entire Tulum area has a population of 28,000 and the official languages are Spanish and Maya. Buses, and private or shared shuttles are easily arranged to Tulum from the Cancún international airport.


The Tulum area and the Riviera Maya is rich in history, nature reserves, cenotes (sinkholes) with caverns and caves, snow-white sand beaches, turquoise Caribbean waters, and emerald green jungles. Tulum is generally thought of as having three distinct regions: 


Tulum archaeological site on the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean Sea is a popular tourist destination and was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya; 

Tulum beaches which are dotted with "eco-chic" hotels, restaurants, spas, as well as rustic cabaña accommodations; 

Tulum town, a growing small town with a variety of restaurants, bars, music venues, internet cafés, stores, tour agencies, hotels, hostels, vacation rentals, car and bike rentals, yoga studios, gyms, and, of course, the popular Meztli Spanish Language School which is downtown in Colonia Centro.


In Tulum you’ll find a very diverse population and the influence of many different cultures: locals (Maya and Mexicans), expatriates from around the world, and tourists and travelers just passing through or staying for an extended time. The vibe of Tulum clearly differs from the other towns along the Riviera Maya, such as Cancún or Playa del Carmen. Tulum has no big hotels, cruise ship ports, or mass tourism, it has the air of a small town and is the ideal starting point for a variety of experiences and excursions.
