I took my first trip to Tulum, Mexico in March 2021 and I was so excited to finally see the most instagrammable place in Mexico! I always see gorgeous photos of Tulum ALL over instagram and had major FOMO because I felt like the only person on the planet who had not been yet!! Tulum is insanely trendy and is truly a content creators dream. From the gorgeous beaches to all the insta worthy restaurants, Tulum is the place to go if you want a gorgeous feed. This list includes the top instagram spots in Tulum, Mexico!
Top Instagram Spots in Tulum, Mexico
Follow That Dream Sign
I was so surprised when we came up on this spot. In my head I figured it was in front of a bar or store, but it really it is just on the side of the road! Since this is such a well known spot, try to get creative with your photos so they look a bit different than the hundreds you see online. (I personally didn’t do a great job at that lol). The Follow That Dream sign is located on the Tulum Beach Road in front of Lolita Lolita boutique.
So I didn’t actually get to go to any cenotes in Tulum, but I did get to go to Cenote Azul in Playa del Carmen. It’s about a 45 minute drive, right between Tulum and Cancun. I highly suggest a day trip because we really loved this cenote and could have spent hours there! It only costs about $7 USD and is open from 8:30- 5:30.
Address for Cenote Azul – Calle 20 Norte 652. Playa del Carmen
If you don’t want to make the trip, there is Cenote Choo Ha and Gran Cenote, both in Tulum!
Turquoise Petit Hotel
So obviously you have to be a guest to take photos at Turquoise Petit, but I highly suggest spending a night or two at this gorgeous hotel! It’s located in Tulum Town which gives you a totally different feel than on the beach! There are a ton of amazing bars and restaurants, plus it is way less touristy!
Address – Calle 10 S. Tulum
Obviously this is a super cute photo spot, but the smoothie bowls are actually incredible. Now you have two reasons to go! Located on Tulum Beach Road across from Alquimia Hotel.
Ven A La Luz
Possibly the most iconic Instagram spot in Tulum! I thought Ven A La Luz was totally worth it for a photo, it’s such a cool sight to see! I highly recommend going early in the morning as normally there is a line to get photos! We only had to wait for 1 group and we went around 8am. It is located outside of Raw Love cafe on Tulum Beach!
There are a ton of spots to take photos along the beach. Each hotel and restaurant seems to be made for instagram! A few spots we stopped at were in front of Ahau Tulum hotel and at Kanan Hotel and Spa where we stopped for a coffee and snack!
Unico Riviera Maya
As the name suggests, Unico isn’t actually in Tulum, but in Riviera Maya. We spent a few days at this resort after exploring Tulum and we loved the laid back vibes, plus the incredible food! So I thought I would add it to this list to give you an idea of other things to do in the area!
