Tranquility Tulum is a wellness retreat that pushes your well-being to the maximum through healthy eating, bootcamp exercises, and connecting with nature.
Similar to our Tranquility in the Yucatan itinerary, the difference is that this tour ends in Tulum at a fitness and wellness retreat instead of Isla Holbox for a bootcamp-like training experience. The 10 day trip includes stays at Xixim, Coqui Coqui, and Amansala, boutique hotels chosen for their serenity and wellness ambiances. The first few days are full of mind and body exercises at Celestun Biospehere Reserve, followed by visits to Mayan ruins, and ending with several day wellness program/bootcap in Tulum.

Rent a bike and pedal the grounds or enjoy a rickshaw ride from a local. After the visit we will continue to some of the best kept secrets of the area – the secluded underground cenotes. Due to the flat and porous nature of the limestone shelf of the Yucatan Peninsula, there are no over ground rivers; rather the extensive precipitation and run off from the Sierra Madre Sur finds its way to the sea through a vast network of underground rivers that criss cross the region. Cenotes are underground sink holes that form along this river network and can be accessed through tunnels, caves, and other geological openings into the mysterious and beautiful subterranean world. The Cenotes you will visit are only a few minutes away from the Cobá, but are considered some of the most beautiful in the whole Peninsula and perfect for a refreshing swim after exploring in the tropical climate. You may opt to climb onto the man made platforms and dive into the crystal clear waters. Once you have enjoyed the refreshing waters you will continue on to Amansala in Tulum.
