My first time in Tulum... Will 8 days be enough?

Tulum is mainly known for the worldwide postcards showing that Mayan pyramid on the hill and the turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea as background. Most tourists come from Cancun with a daytrip tour, however they miss on everything else this area offers. 

 If you choose to stay a little longer, you will certainly discover many things according to your interests. Highlighting the main categories...: 

Archaeological Sites. In addition to Tulum ruins, Coba and Muyil are just 45 minutes from Tulum downtown. 

Cenotes. The area has a lot of them, with different shapes, sizes and colors. You can find them over the coastal road towards Playa del Carmen, on the road to and in Coba, and even in Tulum hotel zone. 

Beaches. Tulum coast has beautiful beaches with excellent sunrises. You can also visit protected areas, such as Akumal and Xcacel. 

Biosphere Reserve of Sian Ka'an. It is one of the largest protected areas in Mexico and it’s simply stunning. With Mayan ruins, springs, coral reef, huge beaches, starry nights, lagoons interconnected by water ways made by pre-Columbian Mayans, where you can even let yourself go with the flow while you are surrounded by mangroves… there is no way you’ll go wrong with it. 

Additionally there are adventure parks and more.  
Will 8 days be enough? I simply know that the longer I'm in a place, the more I want to explore, but I also know that in the Yucatan Peninsula, if you do not move you can lose so much more... By the way, remember: don’t affect the flora or fauna, don’t leave garbage, and use eco-friendly sunscreen and insect repellent.
