Tulum is very low key and it has some gorgeous beaches. It’s popular with independent travelers and it’s close to he spectacular, Mayan ruins of Tulum. I highly recommended it – especially if you are seeking a quiet vacation. Click here to read my post on Tulum.
I recommend these hotels:
- Adonis Tulum Hotel – Mixed gay & straight, luxury, ocean front hotel near the town of Tulum. It does not have a beach but the beach at Papaya Playa is only a 15 minute walk away. Nice pools and rooms. Food is pretty good and the service was excellent. I stayed here in March 2011. $$
- Papaya Playa – This cabana style, “Popup” hotel is under new ownership. Like most hotels in Tulum, it’s a very small hotel right on the beach. Unlike other hotels, it has become “hip” since the new owners took over. I stayed at this hotel in March 2012. Click here to read my review. $$
