Rotary, founded in 1905,  is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting, sustainable change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

The Tulum Rotary Club was originally chartered in 2005 as a Men's club.  It was newly chartered in 2016 to create the bilingual, all-inclusive Tulum Rotary club that we are now.  Our mission continues to be to extend this shared responsibility to take action on our local community's most pressing needs where we work on:

  • Peacebuilding and conflict prevention

  • Disease prevention and treatment

  • Water, sanitation and hygiene

  • Maternal and child health

  • Basic education and literacy

  • Community economic development

  • Supporting the environment


We are People Of Action

Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.  No challenge is too big.  We have collectively immunized 2.5 billion children against polio and are on the brink of eradicating this disease from our planet.

From promoting health, peace, and education to eradicating polio, Rotary unites people of action to create lasting change.  Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into humanitarian projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, long term solutions to the issues our communities face.  Each year, we dedicate 47 million volunteer hours and utilize our fees, donations, and grants to improving the quality of life for others.


Contact us and we'll email you a few brief videos to watch as well as a brief PowerPoint presentation about our local Club.  If you're intrigued, then we'll conduct a new member session with you via Zoom so that you can meet our Board and have all of your questions answered.  We'll discuss with you the nominal financial commitments required as well as the additional suggested financial commitments.  We'll then invite you to an upcoming club meeting and proceed with the membership process by having you fill out a membership application.  Our Club members vote on all new member applications.  The final step upon approval is an official "pinning" event where you receive a rotary pin and agree to adhere to our charter doctrine which contains our "4 Way Test":

  1.  Is it the TRUTH?

  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

  3. Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

and, we've added a 5th... is it FUN?
