Just touched down back in Vancouver after the most amazing week explore the Riviera Maya. First stop was Tulum, a rather famous little beach town home to the most amazing boutique hotels and endless little shops and restaurants with an abundance of options for tacos and photo ready walls.
Myself and my girl crew, Natalie and Dylana Suarez and Cara Jourdan took on the town and all it has to offer in the few days we were there. To say the least I know I will be back one day already. Ive never been to the Caribbean side of Mexico. The waters, bright blue and the beaches with white sand are the perfect back drops to the ultimate beach life. So here are a few things we discovered while exploring, things to do, see eat and where to sleep, since there is a lot to choose from this may help you narrow down your research list for your visit if you are planning a trip.
Things to do, eat and where to sleep in Tulum:
1. Sleep at Azulik (Photos coming soon)
2. AirBnB’s are a great way to live a bit of a more local life while in Tulum. The key is to be in the area between Av. Coba which leads you to the beach and all the beach side restaurants, hotels and bars and Carr Cancun Tulum which is the main street with more local restaurants and shops. Another key tip is to make sure there are free bikes.
3. Visit the Cenote’s. we visited a smaller one outside of town called Crystal but the Grand Cenote is the bigger more popular one.
4. Eat dinner at Hartwood, there are so many amazing restaurants but this one is a must.
5. Eat lunch at The Beach Hotel Tulum, they have delish ceviche and you can eat on the beach, which I love.
6. Enjoy some cervesas at Papaya Playa Project an eco chic hotel that also hosts a weekly Full Moon party starting at 10pm on Thursdays. Have the mushroom tacos there, they are to die for.
7. Eat breakfast at Tunich
8. Visit the Ruins early in the morning because it gets really hot and really busy later on, but it is worth seeing.
9. When you stroll the local street eat at Burrito Amore
10. If you are feeling like being adventurous you can also use glampinghub.com to find yourself a cute eco chic hut,tent or even yurt for your stay.
10. Eat at Malevo, we had breakfast here, it was so yummy, have the veggie omelette it is worth the break in burritos and tacos.
There are endless places to go, which is why there is no way we could have hit all the spots in just 4 days but at least this is a good start on travel tips for this little beach town. It is a great spot for couples as well as girl crews, totally safe and such a great vibe day and night. Sunrise is right over the ocean so if you can watch it one of the mornings, the sky turns all purple as it shows up over the horizon.
Needless to say Tulum is a must visit, the vibe is perfect for a beach vacation that is not like a resort getaway in Cancun. Exploring is key, bikes are a must and constantly eating is impossible to side step. Let me know if you have any questions about these travel tips, there is more to come from our trip so stay tuned!
