Beach Clubs
These are the best tourist friendly beach clubs in Tulum.
Our favorite beach club! Almost to the end, just before you reach the arches into the Sian Kan´an, is Rosa del Viento. This one is a hidden gem. We especially like this property being so close to the Sian Kaán. This seclusion lends itself to long walks onto uninhabited beaches! An Italian owned hotel and restaurant, the owners have thought of most everything. Attention to detail, authentic Italian cuisine and personal service will make you feel pampered in a barefoot casual way. The on-site Italian restaurant is reasonably priced for the beach and features Italian cuisine combined with local seafood and vegetables. Try the ceviche or the wood fired pizza. No minimums and no charge for beach beds!

A favorite hotel, it also just happens to be a great place to hang out for the day. They have really comfortable beach beds, hammocks, and an open-air restaurant to find shade and refreshment. Colorful and fun, La Zebra is an enjoyable place to bring the entire family as there is also a playground for the kids. The menu is reasonably/comparably priced for the beach audience and there is a wide selection of Mexican Maya fusion food and drinks.

On the way North towards Playa Del Carmen on HWY 307 The most amazing snorkeling we have found ANYWHERE around Tulum!! Turtle Beach (Real Name Xcacel or Xcacelito): To get to Turtle Beach, travel N on Hwy 307 (Main Street Tulum), and you will leave Tulum. Stay on Hwy 307 for about 10 minutes as you are headed out of town. As you are about 1.5 miles past Xel - Ha Aquatic Marina Park on the highway, Xcacelito is on the right-hand side of the street and is marked by a medium size blue and white banner sign that has a sea turtle on it and the Maya names “Xcacel Xcacelito”. The Mayan “X” is an “Esh” sound, (Esh – ka - sel or Esh – ka – sel - eeto). When you see the sign, make a right hand turn down a dirt road. If you get to the Chemuyil overpass exit on HWY 307 from Tulum you have gone too far. The entrance to the beach is just before the Chemuyil overpass. There will be a guard stand, and the donation cost to get in is $2.00 USD or $40.00 pesos per person. Donate more if you like sea turtles, they have a conservation center there where they rescue sea turtles and do community awareness campaigns through the local schools. There is also a cenote (spring) you can explore, which is a really cool jungle walk that opens up into a crystal-clear spring surrounded by mangroves. You will want to pack your own cooler of snacks and drinks, and bring your sun umbrella. They usually have people on the beach offering to rent you an umbrella, but bring one just in case no one is there to rent you one.

Food scene
Tulum is a foodies paradise!! Enjoy these dining options and prepare for deliciousness and fun! We have a range of recommendations here, from tacos and burritos in town, vegan and vegetarian, to fresh seafood and grilled steaks on the beach and all kinds of amazing atmospheres. Enjoy and choose wisely, you have some difficult decisions ahead!
The proprietor, Mateo, has a creative sense for flavours blending traditional American grilled items with a Mexican style menu unlike any you’ve ever tasted. Try the TexMex Burger, the Smothered Burritos or the Baja Fish Tacos (Mateo claims to have the best fish tacos on earth...and we think he might be right!). Everything on Mateos menu is appetizing and the prices are good for the beach road. Decorated with natural jungle wood, the Robinson Caruso style cat walks and multi-level decks are highlighted by the towering sunset deck. You’ll feel like a kid again! This is the ultimate jungle tree-house with an amazing view of the sea and jungle. There is also a sports bar cantina with a ping pong table and a dartboard. Mateo’s has a GREAT happy hour and sunset deck viewing from 5 - 7 PM, with 2 for 1 drink specials and live music quite often. Try a variety of their tropical specialty drinks including; The Coco Loco, Mango Margarita and the Strawberry Basil Mojito to name a few. Fun, fun, fun!

The food is delicious with the freshest homemade pasta and fish around and the drinks are fantastic! These aside ambiance is a night to remember. The prices here are a little higher and the portions are a little larger, so it would be considered a special night out. Make sure you bring a shawl or a sweater as the ocean breezes feel cool after a day on the beach. Posada Margherita is located on the beach road, just after Hotel Amansala. Look for the sign that has a big daisy on it. Parking is on the right, walk through the hotel grounds, restaurant is on the beach.

Cenzontle is open from 6 - 11 pm, they serve a delicious variety of Pre-hispanic Fusion dishes, in a beautiful and romantic atmosphere created by candles and the jungle; and their cocktails are all an explosion of flavors. We specially recommend the Rita Hayworth cocktail, and the piquillos appetizer!!! They also have a cozy secret garden to walk through while enjoying a drink and a tower to spot a perfect sunset over the jungle of Tulum.

La Zebra offers breakfast, lunch and dinner on their deck overlooking the blue Caribbean Sea. Not sure if this makes the food taste better, but it doesn’t hurt. The menu features seafood caught daily, abundant fresh local fruits and vegetables; a fusion of Mexican/Caribbean flavour dishes. Try the seafood burger with seared tuna, topped with fresh shrimp and served with sweet potato fries! While you’re at it, order a pitcher of sangria infused with local fruit or the fresh sugar cane mojitos. Don’t forget on Sundays, they start the BBQ early to prepare for Sunday Salsa Dancing! The live band usually gets started around 7pm.

Main Street downtown Tulum Centro. One block north of the main plaza. Look for the white building with blue and orange Pollo Bronco sign. Quite possibly the best grilled chicken you will ever taste, it is fresh o the wood red grill. Choose from 1⁄4, 1⁄2, 3⁄4 or whole marinated succulent chicken. I don’t want to over sell these chickens, but it is fantastic and muy economico! Get a whole grilled chicken, with a stack of tortillas, hot sauce, Spanish rice and cabbage for just $120 pesos.

Humo is a relatively new restaurant which conquered our hearts from the very beginning, every single dish we have tasted here we have loved! It is located on the south end of town and it will catch your attention because of its very sophisticated yet funky spherical spiral bamboo structure. Prices are fair and food is truly inspired, not only in Mexican flavors but in Mexican culture and traditions.

Our favorite Breakfast Taco Stand. One of the most popular places for having an early and tasty start. Its open from 7 am and very likely by noon food will be almost over. Honorio is a family business where they serve only 4 different kinds of tacos, but that is plenty for making all visitors want to go back. Do not miss the Lechón and Cochinita Tacos, and pick a fresh fruit juice or horchata from their variety, Cebada juice is yummi!!!

Town and Beach
The beach “Hotel/Jungle Zone” and the “Downtown” and surrounding jungle adventures. Both options have something to offer in an authentic Mayan experience in paradise. The beaches are amazing with plenty of chic upscale shopping, beach clubs and beautiful people. The town is charming and more authentic Mexican, including the prices, which are generally about half of what you pay in the captive beach zone. Enjoy them both, they have a lot to offer!

Taxis, Bikes and Rental Cars
If you don’t have a rental car, the most popular form of transportation in Tulum is taxi or bike. You can easily get around downtown Tulum and the beach areas by bike and have fun doing it. You can rent bikes for around $8 per day and less if you do it for a week. This is a really fun way to get around. Most bikes have baskets to tote your beer in and if you bring a backpack for groceries, you can get more beer in your basket! ALWAYS get a rate from taxis before taking the ride!

Escape from the Airport!
As you are leaving customs in the Cancun Airport, and walking out of the building towards your rental car or shuttle service, you will walk through what we refer to as “The Gauntlet”. Do not stop to talk to any of these tour guides, shuttle service providers, or taxi drivers. You will be caught up for quite some time as they try and sell you their services. I promise you will get better pricing working with the local tour guides here in Tulum. Look straight ahead, and get outside!

Fresh Produce
Farmers in Mexico use manure to grow their produce, not a lot of pesticides and chemicals. Because of this, the produce may look a little different than in the U.S. or other countries. It may not be as big or as shiny, but it tastes just as delicious. Fresh fruit and vegetable stands are found throughout town and on main street. Use sanitizer soak. Look for stands with brightly colored pineapples and various fruits in front of the store. Two of the best ones recommended are; Pool (located 1 block off main street behind Scotia bank) and the other is Gypsy Market on the south end of town.

Main Grocery Store
For those who might be staying in private homes or condos, the main grocery store in Tulum is called Chedraui and is located on the Boca Paila Beach road (beach road) approximately 1⁄4 mile from the stoplight. This American style grocery store contains most of what you need. They have many American brands, great produce and a large deli, bakery, small electronics and a sporting goods area. You can use your credit or debit card here and get the bank’s current daily exchange rate on transactions. There are also 4 ATM machines in the store.

Parking on The Beach Road
On the beach road parking is limited and areas where it is prohibited are well marked with a crossed out “E” as the Spanish word for parking is “Estacionamiento”. There are areas where one can park on the road parallel, but you are always better off finding a spot to park off street. Just be sure that the parking lot you choose matches the hotel or beach club you plan to visit. We are also seeing more paid parking areas along the beach road now.

Dining in Tulum Tips!
The pace of dining in Tulum is different than dining in the US, UK and Canada. Restaurateurs expect you to stay and linger. Most waiters are quick to pick up your dish on the table, don’t be surprised if you feel abandoned once the plate is gone! This is not to be rude but to give you time to digest before offering desert or an after-dinner drink. Waiters believe it’s impolite to present the check before you ask for it. While dining, don’t be surprised if total strangers nod their heads at you and say in Spanish, “Buen Provecho” (Pronounced “Buen Pro-vay-cho”). This means “Enjoy your meal".

Cenotes!
Tulum has many amazing cenotes both on the beach and surrounding jungles, which is a different experience than swimming in the ocean. Cenotes on the Yucatan Peninsula are part of the LARGEST underground river system in the world. There are about 1500 miles of underground rivers and cenotes charted by exploratory divers. They contain fresh cool water rather than salt water. A few nearby are Casa Cenote -MUST SEE (Hwy 307 north of Tulum - 10 minutes), Gran Cenote, Dos Ojos (Hwy 307 north of Tulum - 15 minutes), and the Coba Cenotes (Past the Coba Ruins well marked).
