Location Overview / Where is Tulum Mexico located?:
Tulum is located on what's named the Riviera Maya or sometimes called the Mayan Riviera. This area stretches from Cancun all the way south to Tulum. Geographiclly speaking the entire area is part of the Yucatan Peninsula. Tulum is on the tail end of the Riviera Maya. Going farther south on the road to Xcalak the area becomes what's called the "Costa Maya".
The state is called Quintana Roo.
The Yucatan peninsula is an area that swoops up toward Florida. It is only approx. 500 miles from Miami, Florida.
Latitude/Longitude at the Cancun airport is: 21* 02' 000" lat. 86* 53' 000" long.
Large Ziplock Bags Ziplock bags are great for dirty clothes or wet suits. I also use them for cameras, film amd whatever else I don't want sand in.
Group Travel When traveling in a large group, it is helpful to either tie the same brightly colored ribbon or affix a brightly colored piece of tape on every piece of luggage. This aids in being able to spot each other's luggage at all times.
Water Bottled Water is the absolutely safest drinking water. Many first-rate hotels use purified water in their taps. Budget hotels may provide agua purificada in bottles or carafes. Request beverages sin hielo (without ice) - do not take chances. More up-scale establishments use purified water for everything, but be sure to ask.
Electricity 110 volts, 60 cycles, same as in the U.S.
