There’s nothing like a Mexican winter, especially in Tulum, Mexico where winter temperatures never touch the light-blue waters or white-sand beaches. In fact, temperatures in Tulum rarely drop below a soothing 70 degrees (even in February).
Tulum, Mexico, located on the southern edge of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, is the perfect carefree getaway. It’s a little off the grid, but the hot long days and moonlight nights are big hit amongst travelers of all types.

Sea view rooms are less than $200/night.
