Home | Blog | Places to Stay

The most important choice you have to make when choosing where to stay in Tulum is whether you want to be on the beach or in Tulum town. Tulum town and the beach are about 5km apart and offer quite different experiences. The hotels in Tulum town are typically more authentic Mexican whilst the beach caters more for international travellers. If you’re not sure where to stay and if you have the time we would recommend that you split your visit one quarter Tulum town and three quarters Tulum Beach. On shorter trips head straight to the beach.
