Tulum is one of the popular destinations in the Mexican Caribbean and has its own patch of paradise.

What You Need To Know About This New Flight Route  

The first nonstop Jetblue flights from New York to Tulum landed in Mexico this week. This is exciting news that makes Tulum more accessible than ever.  

Jetblue is currently the only airline offering a direct nonstop service between Tulum and New York JFK airports.  

This will be a daily flight, with the outbound route departing from JFK at 8 am each morning and the inbound route departing from Tulum at 12.45 pm each afternoon.  

As well as being an easily accessible and affordable route, there’s even more good news for travelers wanting to get to Tulum from New York.

Jetblue will fly their Airbus A320 on this route. For those of us who aren’t plane nerds, this is good news because this airline has an award-winning service and has officially been crowned the plane with the most legroom in coach.  

That means that you won’t have to upgrade and stretch your budget just because you want to stretch your legs!

JetBlue Expands In Mexico  

Jetblue is working hard to expand its service into Mexico. The addition of this new route to Tulum means that you can now use the carrier to visit 3 destinations in Mexico.  

They are Tulum, Cancun, and Los Cabos.

Jetblue is focusing on the expansion of its international offering, and it currently services 40 different international destinations.  

The route from New York JFK to Tulum is unlikely to be their only service to this fast-growing Mexican hub.  

Why Choose To Visit Tulum?  

Tulum is having a moment.

In fact, if its popularity grows any faster then Cancun may have to start worrying about hanging on to its crown as America’s favorite Mexican destination!  

But it’s easy to see why. There are so many incredible reasons to choose to visit Tulum.  

Visit The Tulum Archeological Site

The Tulum ruins in the archaeological zone are well worth exploring. Tulum was an incredibly important port city for the Mayan people.  

Getting to the ruins from the official car park is a long walk (especially in the burning sun) but you’re rewarded with incredible views for making the effort.

This is one of the few Mayan sites that looks directly over the ocean. Although you can’t walk down to the beach from the ruins anymore, experiencing the ruins with the sound of crashing waves in the background is incredible.  

Top tip: take your own reusable water bottle. 

We had our plastic water bottles taken off us at the entrance to the site (no disposable plastic bottles allowed!), and I’ve never been as thirsty as I was by the time we’d finished exploring the ruins! (Over here making stupid mistakes so you don’t have to! 😂)

Incredible Food Scene  

Tulum has a well-deserved reputation for its incredible food scene.

Take a food tour through the city center to explore its street food options, including tacos, stews, and other traditional Mexican dishes.

But if you’re looking for something a little more bougee then there are near-endless options here.  

One of the best restaurants in Tulum is Hartford, which is an off grid, open air restaurant offering some of the best seafood you’ve ever tasted.  

It’s worth noting that Tulum isn’t the place to be if you’re on a tight budget. It’s not unusual to spend $20 on a cocktail here, and $40-50 per dish for dinner in a beach-front restaurant. That makes for an eye-wateringly expensive dinner for my family of four!  

Cool Down In Beautiful Cenotes  

My personal favorite thing about Tulum is the chance to cool down in the beautiful cenotes, which are plentiful in this part of Mexico.  

Cenotes are underwater sinkholes that were created by eroded limestone and they were considered sacred by the Mayan people.

The water in these cenotes is a vibrant turquoise blue thanks to the limestone it passes through.

They have a magical, almost ethereal feel. The water is cool and clear and perfect for snorkeling and swimming.  

The Cenote Zahil-ha is a great choice if you’re traveling with kids, as there are plenty of fish in the water of this open cenote and you can jump in from the side if you’re feeling brave.  

We took a cenote tour, which meant we got to explore several of these pools of water, and it really was a highlight that I’d recommend to anyone visiting Tulum.
