Activities

Here are some of the best spots in Tulum for sight-seeing, good food, and great shopping...

Restaurants & music

Casa Jaguar - This jungle restaurant has great food and is surrounded by cool shops.  Things really pick up late at night and they often have DJs visiting from around the world.

Hartwood - If there's one restaurant to visit for fresh local seafood done in that perfect Riviera Maya style this is it!  

 

Shopping

Grocery Store & ATM - Chedraui is the closest super market and they carry anything you may have forgotten including a nice selection of tequila and mezcal.  This is also the best place to use the ATM as the ones on the beach strip are often out of money and result in fraud.  

Directions - you can take one of the bikes (about a 10 minute ride) or just ask the front desk for a cab.  When you exit PPP take a right and at the fork in the road (traffic circle) bear left.  Pass the police station and the urgent care facility on your right you'll see a large parking lot.  This is the Chidraui.  It's easy to miss because it's set back quite far from the road.  If you make it to Tulum town you've gone too far.

The beach strip - Take a bike and explore the beach strip.  You'll find tons of stores selling dream catchers Bendito Tulum is one of the nicest for those and if you follow them on Instagram you get a 10% discount.    

Tulum Town -  For locally made souvenirs at a good price, including ceramic mixing bowls, funky skeleton sculptures, and colorful painted maracas head to Mixik.  You'll know you're in the right spot when you see its eye-catching red and orange storefront and palapa roof.

 

attractions

Tulum Ruins - One of the most popular spots to visit in Tulum is the ruins and they truly are magical.  Just take a bike from the hotel turn right out of the front gate and keep riding.  It's about 15 minutes up the road and well worth the ride.  This is the only spot in Mexico where the ancient ruins are on the beach.  Please know that the ruins are free for Mexican citizens on Sunday so it's very crowded on that day but still awesome!  On your way back be sure to stop at Mezzanine for a margarita on their beach-front patio! 

Cenotes - Yucatan is known to have the world’s most widespread range of underwater sinkholes and caves called cenotes. Some of these cenotes are open like a lake, others completely closed with only a small opening. There are more than 6000 of them in the Yucatan, so you have plenty of options to choose from.  You'll need to take a taxi to get to them.  One of the best ones close to PPP is Dos Ojos

Monkey Sanctuary Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals is an experience designed for everyone to know, enjoy and learn about the natural wonders of the Mayan jungle. Do not miss the opportunity to meet different species of wild, exotic and domestic animals.
