Tulum on a budget

Tulum’s coastline, with soft, sandy beaches, clear, turquoise waters and balmy breezes, makes it one of the top holiday destinations in Mexico. Even better, it’s accessible to those on a tight budget.

SIGHTS

IK Lab

(iklab.art; Carretera Tulum Ruinas km 5)

In this contemporary art gallery, guests enter barefoot, as the floors are meant to be a part of the art: they’re polished cement and bejuco (vine-like wood). Opened by the great-grandson of art collector Peggy Guggenheim, it’s a dreamlike exhibition space of meandering expanses under patterned wood domes.
