Went to Tulum for a week a while back and absolutely loved it. 

We visited at the beginning of February and the sun was hot. Our hotel was on the other side to the beach and so we needed some form of transport to get there, from what I can remember the taxi's charge per head. There are loads of places to rent mopeds and cycle bikes including the hotel I stayed at but you might find better prices if you shop around. 

Walking distance from our hotel was a high street with loads or restaurants, bars and clubs. 

Below is a list of the places I visited during my stay. One of the things I liked most about my trip here is there were quite a few places that catered to my dietary restrictions, this is always an issue for me lol. 

Hotel - Copal Tulum isn't on the beach, it's about 25 mins in a car, bus or moped. Nice views if you get a room on one of the higher floors. Our room was more like an apartment. We didn't have the view like our friends but the kitchen (that came with a blender and coffee maker) was a bonus. On site restaurant for breakfast and room service available. Checkout the rooftop plunge pool for lovely views of the rest of the hotels landscape. @copaltulumhotel

Took part in a morning yoga class with the hotels resident instructor, think I paid about £10 which was great value for money, find her details here 


Love Raw @loverawtulum (beach branch and high street branch) 
Plant based menu, GF options, best smoothies and smoothie bowls I had 

Health conscious restaurant GF and refined sugar free.
The Real Coconut @realcoconutkitchen (beach side)


Ice cream and sorbet (the eaton mess ice cream was 🤤), they had Keto options IYKYK

Grilled jerk chicken @ferronsjerkchicken (same part of town as my hotel, high street) 

 Local family run restaurant (same part of town as my hotel, high street) 
@don_cafeto_tulum we really liked it here, the fresh orange juice is great and the simplistic but tasty dishes were affordable and filling. 


Cenote @buuts_ha
This place reminded me of a beach club but it's not on the beach. 
It was really beautiful, they do both food and drinks and you can swim in the centone but note that they don't allow you to take suncream in to preserve the wildlife in the water. We chose a pretty chill day and I opted for a massage with the resident massage therapist Nicolas and a chilled lunch on the edge of the water but they definitely have more lively party days if thats what you're looking for. 

If a party is what you're looking for you'd be in the right place. Loads of party restaurants along the beach such as Rosanegra which we went to for a bday celebration. There are several beach clubs along this strip that have both indoor restaurant service but also the outdoor beach club entity. Dress codes vary.  

Note: traffic from my hotel side to the beach side is nuts at peak time, if you're staying on one side and dining on the other leave early! 

All in all I enjoyed my time and would definitely go back... but for longer this time!
