Tulúm is the second town of importance in the Riviera Maya, denominated by the famous archaeological zone, although it is a small town of just a few streets running parallel to the Federal highway which is in reality its main avenue. In Tulúm you can find basic services that are not available in other coastal settlements of the southern part of the Riviera Maya. There are other small towns and settlements, like Chemuyil and Akumal, the last, an old port with a small town. Hotels and residential areas can be found in this place.
