What to do in Tulum when it rains?

Indoor Activities in Tulum When It Rains

When the rain rolls in and ruins your beach plans in Tulum, don’t despair. There are plenty of indoor activities to keep you entertained until the sun comes back out.

Relax in Your Hotel

Curl up on your balcony or terrace with a book or magazine and enjoy the views of the ocean and sky. Many hotels in Tulum have open-air rooms and terraces, allowing you to still feel connected to nature. If you start to get cabin fever, head to your hotel’s spa or wellness center for a massage or treatment. There’s no better way to unwind on a rainy day.

Visit a Museum

Tulum has a few small museums worth checking out. The Mystic Museum Tulum showcases modern art, including psychedelic works. It’s a quirky spot that will make you smile on an otherwise dreary day.

Dine at an Indoor Restaurant

Just because you can’t dine al fresco doesn’t mean you have to subsist on room service. Head to an indoor eatery like Hartwood, which serves up creative cuisine with local ingredients in a stylish space. Or try Posada Margherita, an Italian spot known for homemade pastas, pizzas, and a great wine list.

The rain may prevent you from enjoying Tulum’s famed beaches, but with spas, culture, cuisine, and cozy spaces at your fingertips, you’ll discover an entirely different side of this magical place. When the sun returns, you’ll appreciate the outdoor adventures even more.

Take a Cenote Tour

The cenotes of Tulum are gorgeous rain or shine. In fact, the rain water seeping into the limestone gives the cenotes a mysterious, moody vibe. Many tours will still operate on rainy days, so you can explore Tulum’s famed sinkholes and underground rivers without missing a beat. The caverns will shelter you from the rain, and you’ll be able to slip and slide into refreshing cenote waters without worrying about crowds.

Go Tequila Tasting

If you want to avoid the rain altogether, spend the day sipping tequila. Sample a variety of Tulum’s finest tequilas and mezcals in the comfort of a cozy place. By the time the rain lets up, you’ll be feeling no pain and ready to continue your Tulum adventures.
