TULUM DIARY















 So this past week I spent a week in one of my favourite places in the world. The best way you can describe Tulum is magical. Trust me once you go you'll understand. 


WHERE TO STAY
-

Every time I go to Tulum I stay in an Airbnb. There are so many beautiful villas available - The one I stayed in this time was my favourite - We had the whole property to ourselves, a pool, swings on the roof, a magical garden with a hammock, and two bikes to get around!


WHERE TO EAT
-
POSADA MARGHERITA : I know Mexico may not be the first place you would think to go to find AMAZING Italian food, but just effing wait until you try the pasta at Posada Margherita. They hand make the noodles to each order, and I can honestly say that the pasta here was THE BEST pasta I have ever had in my entire life. Wild right?

HARTWOOD : Known for being one of the best restaurants in Tulum, definitely difficult to get a table so go early - the menu changes daily but if you are a seafood fan you should definitely check this place out!

EL CAMELLO JR : This is the local's favourite spot located right in the heart of town - I get the tacos pescados every time I go!

GITANO : If you're looking for something a little more boujee check out Gitano, it is on the beach strip, but on the jungle side. It is fully equip with a massive disco ball hung among a plethora of palm trees.

PANNA E CIOCCOLATO : The best gelato - every time I'm in Tulum I make sure to make at least one stop PER DAY here to get a scoop (or two) of gelato. Ya I have a sugar addiction - sue me.



WHERE TO DRINK
-
GITANO : I think by now everyone knows I'm not the biggest drinker (meaning I RARELY ever drink) - so I may not be the most helpful on this front, BUT I will say that the drinks at Gitano are EFFING amazing - I would have drank 50 of them, but then R.I.P to me. Gitano is known for its Mezcal so I would HIGHLY recommend you get one of their signature cocktails - the bartender made me a 'Stardust' - if you like sweet coconut drinks, definitely order one of these!


WHERE TO BEACH
-

*The beach in Tulum is public, but if you want to sit at one of the boutique hotels on the beach or at one of the beach clubs you normally just have to buy food/drinks in order to reserve a cabana/beach chair

PAPAYA PLAYA PROJECT : I spent two of my days chilling on the beach at the PPP beach club - the staff are all so friendly and they have a decently sized strip of beach ideal for swimming in the ocean. The fact that they had pancakes that you could order directly to your bed on the beach and perfect WIFI on the beach sold me.

COQUI COQUI : Unfortunately this tiny boutique beach hotel was closed for renovations during my most recent stay, which made me super sad, because it is hands down one of the most beautiful boutique hotels I have ever seen in my entire life. If it is open during your time there, definitely check this place out.


TIPS
-
* Make sure you are staying somewhere that provides you with bikes/rent bikes for the duration of your stay - it is the easiest and most fun way to get around to and from the beach/town. The bike ride from town to the beach is about 30 mins + (depending how fast you bike)
*Bring bug spray if you are going to any of the restaurants on the 'jungle side' of the beach strip. My legs got ATTACKED by mosquitoes at Gitano
