So, Tulum diaries part II is finally here! Well, I can talk about Tulum all day long if you leave me! I’m still searching for ways to go back there ASAP!
This second part will give you all the details about where to go, what to eat, and where to shop in Tulum. There are so many amazing places to go, see and of course snap a few pictures because everywhere is photo-worthy in Tulum!
Where to eat & drink in Tulum?
Posada Margherita– a cute Italian restaurant with delicious food! If you crave for something other than Mexican, this is your spot!
Casa Jaguar– the atmosphere, food, music are amazing! It’s as if you are in the jungle. I highly recommend their fish!
Hartwood– we didn’t eat here because they take their reservations at least a month in advance. And if you don’t have a reservation, you need to go there at 5.30pm and wait for them to seat you. I feel like it’s a little bit overrated with its chef from NewYork but it may be worth to try!
Raw Love– a vegan heaven! a lot of healthy, yummy bowls and salads and even pasta!
Hotel Ahau- Went there for Raw Love and ended up staying for the live music! Perfect location to sip your margarita while listening to great music next to the ocean!
Gitano– we went there two nights in a row! there’s live music and mezcal cocktails are amazing!
Murmur– we loved its cute little bar! the octopus was so delicious!
Matchamama- Soo instagrammable! Matcha heaven!
What to see and where to shop in Tulum?
Tulum Ruins– we really wanted to go there, but a small accident with the bike prevented us, unfortunately. They are very close, though. You can even bike there.
Casa Malca– as I mentioned in Tulum Diaries Part I, apart from its relation to Pablo Escobar, this is a very unique place. Very mysterious and fabulous decor!
Town center– Well, there are a lot of boutiques where these restaurants and bars are, but they are insanely expensive! We wanted to buy some souvenirs for our families, so we biked to town center, which was 25 min. away from our hotel. There are a lot of shops one after the other, so you have the option to bargain! I got the cutest authentic leather bag from one of these shops! (See it in the pictures)
Hotel Azulik- personally, not been here, but I heard it’s great for pictures!
What not to do?
I mentioned that taking the Supershuttle from Cancun airport to Tulum was a mistake in my previous post. Here is why: While we were booking our roundtrip shuttle at the airport on arrival, they told us to call them one day before our flight and confirm the time. We did exactly what they said, but they called the hotel on the date of our flight and told that they were not able to pick us up because they were overbooked. I mean, what kind of company does that? So we had to find a taxi that would take us from Tulum to Cancun. Luckily, we found a very decent one and avoided a crisis! So my recommendation is do not book with Supershuttle, they are irresponsible and unprofessional!
