It is a couple of weeks late, but here is a report from my trip to Tulum. I have to say it reminds me a lot of Canggu in Bali, but 10 times more pricey. It felt a little ridiculous to pay $20 for 3 tacos with barely any toppings in Mexico… the land of tacos! Heading into Tulum city though, 20-30 min in a cab from the beach, and you get the best street tacos for 30 cents! We stayed in an Airbnb by the beach on the strip where all of the hotels and restaurants are. The beaches where super nice even though we had a lot of rain.
We arrived on Halloween, downed some food & Tequila, and went to a party. Me as Mia Wallace and Andrew as Vincent Vega 🙂
The next day was pretty much spent recovering on the beach with Sangria 🙂
I love Mexican food, and here are my top picks if you’re heading to Tulum:
Breakfast at Real Coconut Tulum. All gluten-free place with everything cooked in coconut oil and a beautiful ocean view.
Right across from our place, there was this great little spot – Los Bowls de Guadalupe. Super good bowls and smoothies, and perfect to watch people stroll by 🙂
Lunch at Frescos. Wow, the ceviches and fried crab tacos!
Like I said, the street vendors in Tulum City have the best street tacos! They didn’t have any by the beach, but you find them in the city.
Also in the city was the best coffee place Ki’Bok Coffee. Tried other places too, but this was the best if you’re into specialty coffee. They had great food and wifi so you can work there.
While in the city, eat at Humo. Nice atmosphere and good food. And drinks 🙂
When it comes to dinner, in the city, definitely try Tu. Wow, the food and drinks! Last pic of me when I’m stuffed and semi drunk after trying too many things off the drink list hahhaaaaa…
By the beach I liked Casa Banana. Big portions and tasty. I did take a pic of my whole grilled fish, but it doesn’t do this place justice, so I spare you of the dead fish pic…
And they have the best bread/bakery shops. Me at night suffocating myself with a chocolate croissant yummy!
Talking about pictures. I found this awesome photographer in Tulum and we went out shooting one day. I wish I always looked this good for real 🙂
One other popular thing in Tulum is yoga. Dozens of places. This one was at a fancy spa called Yäan Wellness. Ashleigh and I did some down-dogs and felt relaxed and yogi-ish after. Great place!
Saved one of the best things for last. Booked a Mescal tasting with a 3-course dinner through Airbnb. WOW! Hosted by a couple at their house and the food and Mescal was just so good! If you want to book, they are also on IG @cocina.selva. Oh, they had a couple of super friendly dogs too that chilled with us 🙂
Here comes some more random pics of heavy rain, me, more me, cute dog at the airport, cute cat at a restaurant, me and some more randomness 🙂
That’s about it from Tulum. I do believe I’ll go stay in Mexico City next year for a couple of months 🙂
