Tulum Getaway

Hey guys! As you know, last week I came back from my trip to Mexico. I visited Tulum about a year ago and it quickly became one of my favorite destinations. I wanted to go back and experience the beaches, hotels and food all over again. I went right after NYFW and I found it to be the perfect relaxing trip after a hectic schedule. 

I stayed at the Nomade Hotel, but one of the best parts of Tulum is exploring all the different hotels. Last time I was there, I stayed at Papaya Playa, and each place has its own flavor. You can’t go wrong, because they all share the same strip of beach all along the coast. I would recommend if you wanted to do Tulum on budget you could even stay at a place in the city and drive to the beach during the day! The hotels in downtown Tulum can be much more affordable.

One of the advantages of staying on the main strip on the beach is being so close to all the amazing restaurants. Some of the ones I visited was Gitano’s, Arca and The Real Coconut. Tulum has so many healthy food options, with amazing seafood and of course the best Mexican food.

One of my favorite spots to go to in the morning was Matcha Mama, they have amazing smoothies, healthy snacks and matcha lattes. We were also able to do yoga every morning, most of the hotels offer yoga as part of your stay. One of my favorite classes were taught by Audeo Yoga, where you wear headphones to hear the instructor and specially curated music for the classic. It was such a unique experience and would definitely recommend looking into taking one of their classes if you ever go to Tulum.

One thing I would recommend packing when going to Tulum is bug spray. It is a very humid climate and especially the time of the year I was there, it was full of mosquitos. 

Where are some of your favorite places to visit for rest and relaxation?
