Last Updated

As the winter vacation season draws ever nearer to a close, one destination that has proved a popular choice for tourists is Tulum.

Reported to have had a consistent occupancy level of 80 percent throughout the high period in winter, experts are hopeful that it will remain just as prominent during the spring period. 

Why Now Is The Time To Book Tulum 

Between March and April, numbers are already projected to reach similar levels as the current winter period and here why we think that is the case…

Firstly, the new international airport in Tulum has made the destination more attractive and far more accessible than in previous years. 

National tourists who usually pick Cancun Airport as their main air terminal before moving on to their next destination now have a chance to explore the south of Quintana Roo quicker and easier. 

For international tourists, flights from major U.S cities such as Dallas, Los Angeles, and Chicago will begin operations, and major airlines are already reporting high levels of ticket bookings for this time.

Secondly, Tulum is becoming an ever growing luxury wellness and eco destination; an attribute that more and more tourists are looking for from their next vacation, especially as they emerge out of the cold winter months.

As the Tulum Airport creates better connectivity, so too does its draw for more tourists who want to experience something different from the more mainstream vacation that somewhere like Cancun offers. 

With being voted as the Yoga Capital Of The World by Forbes a couple of years ago, seeing huge investment in luxury- wellness resorts and being the home of some incredible eco-friendly tourists attractions like Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, it is no wonder that Tulum is experiencing such high occupancy this winter.

Thirdly, the enhanced security measures that are being introduced, thanks to the Tulum International Airport and arrival of the new Maya Train Route are drawing more tourists who want their safety assured while on vacation.

An employee of a bicycle shop in Tulum noted that they have only had two thefts the entire winter season, which is less than expected from previous year’s reporting. 

In peak times, such as spring and summer, officials often announce increased measures of security, such as more patrols of beaches and shopping malls by police and more security vehicles and CCTV surveillance. 

This enhancement has already been seen to be working in other major hotspots like Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, deterring criminals who don’t wish to be seen by cameras and consequently reveal their identity.

And finally, as mentioned above, the long-awaited Maya Train will have begun operations in Tulum by spring, allowing passengers to use the service to explore all the incredible hidden gems that exist in southeastern Mexico, as well as use it to travel to and from the new airport. 

The incredible ancient Mayan route lies in and around Tulum, with the famous archeological site that sits proudly atop a clifftop dating back some 1,500 years ago.

The site is considered a pivotal area in relation to Mayan history and culture and is a must-see when you visit Tulum!

How Tulum Is More Connected Than Ever

With the building of the new Maya Train and Tulum International Airport, an important step has been made in making the destination the accessible, connected one that it needs to be.

If you had booked Tulum for last spring (instead of this one), the most popular choice of travel would be flying into Cancun Airport before paying a pretty penny for private hire or taxi to reach it. 

Now you have the glorious option of flying directly to Tulum, as well as using the Maya Train service to take you to your accommodation from the airport, making it cheaper and faster than it has ever been before. 

Spring is also the perfect time to book, as it is almost guaranteed not to be as busy as the summer and winter months, and it maybe the last chance you get to witness Tulum before it truly explodes in popularity and changes forever!
