Experience Ancient Mayan Ruins in Tulum

Unlimited-Luxury®, gourmet dining, full-service spa, endless activities and award winning beaches are just a few reasons to book your next vacation at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa. We welcome couples, families and singles to experience our resort which is set in a unique location in the Mexican Caribbean.

Dreams Tulum is less than five minutes from the ancient city of Tulum, which is home to the only beachfront ancient Mayan ruins.  The archeological site is a must-see for our guests. Learn about Mayan history while admiring the pyramids, ceremonial structures and old temples with the Caribbean Sea as the backdrop. 

The word “tulum” means wall in Mayan. It is believed that the city was named Tulum because it was known as the “walled city” dating back as far as approximately 564 A.D. This magical, mystical place is a fascinating experience that you’ll want to include during your stay at Dreams Tulum.

Tulum is still making history today as it was recently recognized by TripAdvisor’s 2011 Traveler’s Choice Awards as the #5 “Best Beach in the World” and #4 “Best Beach in the Caribbean & Mexico”. The sugar-white sand beaches and crystal-clear blue waters really stand out from the rest because of its rare mix of beach, archeology and village.
