TULUM | TRAVEL DIARY

 

This week-long vacation to Tulum in June was my favorite. Each day felt like a dream waking up to beautiful sunrises just steps from our room. My first visit to this dreamy place was with my family 8 years ago. Each trip since has been so amazing, the vibe of this beach town is the reason why it's become such a trendy destination. Tulum is the most magical beach town with postcard perfect turquoise waters, palmy views + jungle nooks in every corner, pink and blue sunrises, secret cenotes, open-air restaurants and the cutest boutique hotels on the beach. I've listed a little guide below of places to visit and captured my favorite moments in still + video to inspire you to take that much needed beach escape.

 
 

WHERE TO STAY / EAT / PLAY:

  • Our comfortable sustainable accommodations had ocean front views with amazing sunrises. Hammocks were plentiful and sustainability is practiced in this resort.  COCO TULUM nails the clean black and white aesthetic and their all white beach bar is not surprisingly one of the most liked photo on my feed. 
  • COQUI COQUI is a beautiful hotel, boutique, restaurant and perfumery. Purchased a handmade linen dress and lots of edible, fragrant souvenirs for friends back in LA. Enjoyed delish fresh ceviche, juice, chips & guacamole served by the sea. Unfortunately, a week after we got back to LA, there was a land dispute and this Coqui Coqui location is indefinitely closed.
  • PAPAYA PLAYA PROJECT is a popular hotel and wedding destination venue. Order lunch with a smoothie or coconut and take a swing with an ocean view.

  • There are hundreds of CENOTES in Mexico. It's a must to visit at least once. The minerals in the water literally turns your skin into the softest baby's butt. 

  • TULUM RUINS is also incredibly beautiful. Very touristy on most days, but worth the visit. 

  • Eat at HARTWOOD, CASA BANANA,  POSADA MARGHERITA, BURRITO AMOR and TULUM ART CLUB for coffee.
