Things to Do in Tulum, Mexico

Things to Do in Tulum, Mexico

I don’t even know where to start with Tulum! But I’m going to do my best to narrow down my recommendations of things to do in Tulum for you all.

It’s one of my favourite places (isn’t everywhere!? haha) for a number of reasons!


It has a really cool tropical, Ibiza vibe.

Walking down the strip, its hotel after hotel, but as you get further towards the centre, the shops are filled with yoga beads and dream catchers and everything a high-end-hippy could want and need.

There are so many options for yoga places, healthy food, vegan food even!

It’s just dreamy!


We stayed our first few days at Azulik, which is beyond words!

You walk through a beautifully crafted, local wood walkway, through the jungle to get to reception. Everything is built from local wood and is exquisite.

It is an eco hotel, where the rooms are built into the cliffs on the seafront, or in the canopy of the jungle. Each room boasting a roomy mosaic bathtub, equipped with natural shampoos, conditioners and mosquito repellant. Dreamy white mosquito nets cascading over the beds, so when the sun pours in, in the morning, you feel like you are literally waking up in a dream!

Fully equipped with private clothing-optional beach and cocktail and snack bar, it is just paradise.


The second place we stayed was Ahau.

Gorgeous beaches and again, beautiful rooms.

More mainstream than Azulik but fully equipped with an INCREDIBLE raw vegan cafe! FIlles with everything from burgers, to sumptuous smoothies, delicious desserts and tantalizing teas, there is something for everyone, vegan or not.

Now, let’s talk food!

(more food)


My recommendations for things to do in Tulum are:

  • Firstly, do EVERYTHING family style, each order a dish or two off the menu and dive in! You will want to try a bit of everything!
  • Be Tulum for lunch… Sit on their beach and go to town with their lunch menu. Signature salad is a must!
  • Hartwood, this was DIVINE!! You have to either get someone from your hotel to queue at the restaurant to book your table for that night, or you have to go and queue yourself. If you can get a reservation it is SOOOOO worth it. Sit out in the courtyard in the balmy heat, while the smell of the outside kitchen prepares your food. Incense and candlelight fill the surroundings. The food, the cocktails, the ambiance, it’s all on point!!!
  • Casa Banana… for dinner. Outdoor eating, food you will not stop salivating over, wonderful vibe and again, family style is a MUST!
  • Ooooh! One more thing I can’t miss out! You need to get to the ceynotes! These beautiful underwater caves that have been formed from the collapse of limestone! Dos Ojos and Gran Ceynote are two you are able to swim in, which I would HIGHLY recommend! You feel like you’ve stepped into some kind of enchanted fairy kingdom!
