Just in case you missed it, Tulum is fast becoming one of the most popular and trendiest destinations in the Mexican Caribbean, with its new international airport beginning operations in just a matter of days.
Not only is the entire region experiencing a boom like no other in the tourism sector this year, but specifically Tulum’s visitor numbers are reaching new heights; a promising sign for things to come, as the new ‘Felipe Carrillo Puerto’ is set to hold a capacity of 5.5 million passengers annually.
As more and more tourists flock to the upcoming, trendy destination, the expansion of tourist attractions seems to be never-ending in Tulum, meaning you will not be running out of fun things to do when you choose to visit.
New Museum Opening
With a focus on the countless cultural options on offer in Tulum, it has been announced that a new permanent and immersive museum dedicated to Frida Kahlo in the heart of the infamous archeological zone will be inaugurated in the coming months.
An investment of about 2 million dollars has been given to the project and will give tourists an immersive experience through screens and sounds into the life of the great Mexican artist.
@montanadarby Things to do 📍Tulum, Mexico. I highly recommend taking time away from your 5* all inclusive for the day and seeing the real beauty of Mexico with a day trip full of culture and history.

Picking a prime location within Tulum, specifically in the archeological zone, will give tourists yet another opportunity to experience the wealth of culture that sits right at its doorstep, and with more and more people being interested in archaeological and historical tourism, what better place for this exciting new project!
Ever since the pandemic, local governments have been doing everything in their power to expand offerings for their visitors in order to stabilize and regain dominance as the place to come for vacation, and the Frida Kahlo Museum is just one of a huge number of things that tourists should be excited about when visiting.
Whether you choose to fly directly into the new billion-dollar airport or take the new billion-dollar Maya train from Cancun(or tonnes of other destinations) instead, be sure to check out the ancient Mayan ruins that are synonymous with Tulum and the new museum that is right next door.
