Classic Tulum Bike Tour
Duration: 5.5 hours Super Easy
Why we love this tour
Bicycling is the ideal way to discover our hometown: gain a sense of the streets and daily life, discover historical temples and traditions, seek out secret nooks, and stay active.
- Local history, insight & tips as you cycle through town
- Refreshing cenote swim
- Delicious tacos & fresh juice
You'll go via calm roads, jungle trails, and pueblo streets to witness a range of Tulum's natural features and local life. The best way to see everything is by bike, where we'll take you all over town, stopping at many cultural and historical sites, including a full historical tour of the ancient Mayan temples, a swim in the wonderful waters of a cenote, the best tacos, the village's local heart, and today's cosmopolitan town. You'll also learn about Mayan traditions and beliefs, native beekeeping, and a variety of other fascinating stories from the past and present.
We begin the day early to beat the crowds to the ruins and take in the breathtaking views of the ocean and temples. Tulum is a must-see due of its spectacular location, but having an expert accompany you through the site makes a tremendous difference in understanding the motives and reasons for the structures' placement. Behind Tulum's walls, there are a plethora of eye-opening surprises!
After that, we ride back into town for a fantastic brunch of tacos and fresh juice. Cycle through town to discover how the residents live and get recommendations from your guide for places to drink coffee, eat, drink and dance, or shop. We stop at a native Mayan bee farm on the outskirts of town, which is part of a foundation that is working to reintroduce the collection of this bee's honey into the local economy. The fact that the bees are stingless and very calm, posing no harm to humans, makes this an unexpected and enjoyable encounter.
Finally, we'll swim in one of the local cenotes, which will be both refreshing and well-deserved! A fantastic way to calm off, have some fun with jumps, and swim in the refreshing blue waters. The tour is designed to be enjoyable for everyone, with intervals of no more than 20 minutes cycling on a comfortable urban bike between stops. This is an insider's tour of Tulum, led by knowledgeable and passionate tour guides who are eager to share their passion for nature, history, and fun with you.
