If you want to taste a slice of heaven, pack your bags and go to Mexico ! Wait, not just anywhere in Mexico. While Cancun and Playa Del Carmen have become extremely commercial in the last couple years, Tulum surely kept its naturally holistic vibe.
The boutique hotels and restaurants all have a very spiritual feel to them. Tulum offers a holistic experience. The region emphasizes the importance of human senses. Tulum is truly a good place for a detoxifying holiday, good food, yoga, a great ambiance and heavenly beaches.
Tulum’s village is basically made of one long strip of land in the middle of the jungle. The palm trees are abundant and that main street is truffled with boutique shops, stylish restaurants and spiritual camp sites and yoga classes.
WHAT TO DO AND SEE
SWIM IN THE CENOTES
Cenotes of Dos Ojos
BIKE AROUND TOWN
SEE THE RUINS
I have to be honest here, as much as I love historical sites, I was very disappointed about the ruins. I didn’t see much, I didn’t get much out of my experience and the area was invaded by tourists which made it very disturbing.
SHOP A LITTLE
I suggest going cycling on the main street and looking at the street boutiques in the afternoon. The shops carry mostly Mexican designers and products of the region. As opposed to the traditional touristic shopping of Cancun, these stylish boutiques offer great swimsuits, hand knit wool blankets, artisanal hats, home accessories or amazing unique jewelry pieces. Everything feels stylish, artsy and natural.
Coqui Coqui Shop
DRINK MEZCAL ( At your own Risks )
Mezcal is the traditional alcohol of Mexico after tequila. Made from any type of agave plant native to Mexico, it is considered a spiritual drink due to its ability to make you reach higher state of mind once drunk!
COCO TULUM beach CLUB for drinks.
swinging on those with a good mojito in hand is really not that far from what I’d call paradise.
WHERE TO EAT
THE REAL COCONUT
There are many types of residencies in Tulum. From oceanfront huts to luxurious camping tents or private pool villas, Tulum has it all. It is however known to be a little more pricey than other regions of Mexico !
WHERE TO STAY
I hope this inspired you to book your own trip. Visit Tulum and experience a slice of heaven too !
Have a good trip and enjoy this holistic vacation !
