Accommodation in Tulum, Mexico

Welcome to Tulum!

Tulum beachYou MUST come down to Tulum. First, it’s one of the most beautiful white sand beach in the world (in the world, yess!!), plus Tulum beach hosts only small hotels & cabañas (no resort!!). Second, the vibe in the “pueblo” at night is awesome: You’ll always find some live bands of reggae, ska, salsa, rock or some great Djs playing. Tulum is still a village, with a family atmosphere. full of amazing people & places, and it’s quite alive couple nights out of the week. And third, it’s surrounded by pure natural wonders to explore: Cenotes, jungle, natural reserve, Mayans ruins…

My favorite accommodation in Tulum:

Chalupa's private hotel RoomIn town (The town is 4 km from the beach, a 6$ taxi ride): Chalupa hostel  – A double bed in a dorm is at 200 pesos (18$) for 1, or 250 pesos (22$) for 2, which is 11$/person, including breakfast!! Private room is at 500 pesos (45$) for 2, 5$ per extra person. The place is super cool, clean, it has a pool, a kitchen (strictly vegetarian!), all prices include breakfast, it’s well located because it’s in town, but on the beach road. Plus, the bar is run by my lovely friend Charlie 🙂

I spent my first afternoon on Tulum beach yesterday along with my Mexican friend Romina at Zazil’Kin (cabañas on the beach from 40$/night). I was realizing how much, we, North Americans, are always on the go. Mexicans surely taught me that time has another meaning. Sit back, relax, take the time to appreciate each present moment you are in, not worrying about tomorrow or later. 

*Prices are in pesos! (Beer = 2$)

So, putting in practice the Mexican lesson 🙂 Romina & I enjoyed the 2 for 1 daily special of the Zazil’Kin bar, spent the day swimming, suntanning, relaxing, practicing yoga. Don’t get me wrong, Mexicans also work really hard when it’s time to do so, but still, always keep it relax.
