If you’re the type of Tulum hotel visitor who prefers extraordinary adventures over simply lying on the beach all day, Whale Shark Season 2014 is for you!

Ask about typical Mexican souvenirs, and most tourists would mention things like tequila, sombreros, blankets, and some of the brightly painted, mass-produced trinkets like skulls or maracas. While these items and more are popular and widely-available in the Riviera Maya, a discerning traveler to Tulum Hotels might prefer to take home a souvenir unique to the Yucatan peninsula and not something trucked from halfway across Mexico.
Here’s a short list of unique souvenirs that are all made or produced in this area:

Beginning each year around mid-April and stretching into around early November, adult female sea turtles, primarily Loggerheads (Caretta caretta and Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas), make their way to the area’s beaches to dig nests and lay up to 150 eggs twice each season. Approximately 2 months later, these baby turtles hatch and instinctively head toward the sea with moonlight as their guide.
Visitors to Tulum hotels in May have a wonderful opportunity to witness one of the Riviera Maya‘s most unique spectacles: Xcaret park‘s annual Gran Travesia Sagrada Maya, or Great Sacred Mayan Journey, held this year from May 22-24.
