With so much to see and do in Lake Tahoe, sometimes it's nice to have a few go-to adventures that everyone in your group will really enjoy. Here is our list of easy, beautiful, and fun outdoor adventures in Tahoe.
Couched on the Yucatan Peninsula sits Tulum, home to one of Mexico's most stunning Mayan ruins, a biosphere reserve, and a steadily growing tourism industry that captures the beauty of the Caribbean coastline (without the spring break-soaked madness of nearby Cancun). With archeological wonders to explore, water sports and yoga galore, obsession-worthy eats, and some seriously stylish digs, Tulum is nicely set up to make a visiting San Franciscan feel right at home... well, perhaps a paradise-like home-away-from-home.
