Pee-jay hearts Tulum

every beach lover’s dream


Coconuts, surf, sand and margaritas as big as pineapples. Tulum is every beach lover’s dream come true without feeling like you are surrounded by a flock of tourists. I’ve nick-named it the Byron Bay of Mexico.

So, where do I start? I freaking loved this place. About one hour drive south of Playa del Carmen, Tulum is the perfect combination of relaxation and rustic cabanas along with a cool hippy vibe. The long stretches of white sand and the inexorable current of the Caribbean, leaves you not wanting to do anything but chillax. From eco-lodges to all inclusive five star resorts there’s a type of holiday there for everyone.

The main street runs the whole way down the heart of Tulum; one side pristine beach, the other side Mexican Jungle. The street is dotted with a charming mixture of bungalows, restaurants, yoga studios, cafes and boutiques. It was hands down my favourite place in Mexico. We spent the day lounging in the sun at a small hotel called Las Ranitas (a small eco-lodge recommended by my sister for their ginormous sunbeds and even bigger margaritas). The day drifted away with us ordering a perfect rhythm of Mexican nibbles and cocktails. I think I tried every flavour margarita possible!

We weren’t staying in Tulum but had rented a Jeep for the day to explore the town and boy oh boy had I wished I stayed there longer. If you don’t feel confident enough to rent a car, you can organise a transfer from your hotel in Playa del Carmen or better than that- plan to stay in Tulum itself. I’m definitely going to stay in Tulum a lot longer next time.
