I went to Tulum post-burning man on my honeymoon, so I have incredibly fond memories of the place. It’s the perfect mix of relaxing (beach, yoga and sound healing, sure), culture (chichen itza), food and booze (hello guac and tequila. I mean, there was a corona bar outside the arrivals exit at the airport, for crying out loud!). It was a little piece of heaven on earth for me, and I suggest you head there quickly before it comes just another touristy seaside Mexican town.


Definitely head to one of the seven wonders of the world, Chichen Itza; Hire a bike (likely from your hotel), and cycle down the main street in Tulum – KM 10 Carr – and drop into every hotel, every restaurant and every bar. It’s heavenly. Pay a bit extra and get a tour guide to take you to a hidden cenote. You won’t regret it.
