Tulum (sometimes Tulum Pueblo) is the largest community in the municipality of Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. It is located on the Caribbean coast of the state, near the site of the archaeological ruins of Tulum. The community had a 2005 census population of 14,790 inhabitants. The "hotel zone" of boutique hotels on the Tulum beach has grown to over 40 small hotels, most of them cabanas built in the traditional Maya style with thatched palm roofs, and a few restaurants and beach clubs. Inexpensive cabanas with hammocks are still available. Most accommodations remain rustic as electricity in the "hotel zone" is either non-existent or is generated on site.
