After living in Tulum collectively for 4 months, I have resourcefully found the best of well, everything. Not only am I sharing my favorite spots and recommendations, I’m sharing the contact information to those private, hard-to-find services that you only learn from a word of mouth recommendation. You won’t find this tulum guide on google. Mexico runs on Whatsapp, not on google.
why spend 40+ hours on your phone searching when i’ve done it for you?
I’ve done all the scrappy work for you to help you with your trip and save you the google searches and endless scrolling of blog posts, sorting through notes on your iPhone. I have spent over 40 hours collecting and compiling resources, phone numbers, word of mouth referrals, and my personal favorites to share with you to save you valuable time so you can focus on enjoying every day. It’s all in one guide for you to have handy on your phone when you arrive in Tulum.
what’s in the guide?
I’m going to talk about the best way to get around and hook you up with the people who have the best prices, the restaurants you should NOT miss, the best places for high-speed WiFI to get work done (yes, I’ve run speed tests for you), how to find a low-cost apartment and negotiate great deals, where to find the BEST vegetarian / vegan mexican food, where to go for daily yoga by donation, beautiful beach-side dining you can’t miss, where to go to party on the beach and spend less than $7 for fish tacos and margs, a sourdough bread baker that delivers those yummy warm loaves to you, a local coconut woman who delivers fresh coconut water to you for $4 for 4 liters, and how to get all your laundry washed folded and dried for under $5.
I’m also providing you with the best places and people to learn Spanish from, the cenotes you CANNOT miss, the best coffee in Tulum (and the best cafes!), where to workout and the contact info of an amazing personal trainer, where to get a SIM card, where to find the best photography spots for those Instagram pics, and more!
I’m so excited to (virtually) show you around!
