Tulum

The only Mayan site built to overlook the ocean, Tulum remains a coastal paradise preserving the last vestiges of a pre-Hispanic civilization.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Ek Balam and The Mayan Cacao Company. Step off the beaten path and head to Mayan Beach and Punta Sur Eco Beach Park. Step out of Tulum with an excursion to Scuba & Snorkeling in Puerto Aventuras--about 40 minutes away. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at LabnaHa Cenotes & Eco Park, meet some fierce fish with a shark diving experience, and stop by Mexicarte.

Chicago, USA to Tulum is an approximately 8.5- hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of flight, ferry, and bus; or drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Chicago to Tulum due to the time zone difference.
