Tulum is an eclectic, eco-community, with white sand beaches, crystal blue cenotes, and yoga and holistic therapy centers. Nightlife-seekers will find numerous restaurants, bars, and clubs with live music and dancing less than a kilometre away.

Tulum is easy to get around as there is the main road that goes through the town center, and there is a beachside road. We are located near the town center. Many choose to bike or walk around. Taxis are inexpensive and easily available. Rental car companies are in town if you wish to rent. You may also rent a car from Cancun airport or take a bus to town from airport. Private transfers are also available, and our concierge can arrange any tours that you wish to have while visiting Tulum.

The beachside area of Tulum has beach clubs and resorts, and good restaurants. However, majority of nightlife, clubs and dancing, live music spots, and some of the best mexican food as well as vegan restaurants are in the Tulum center. Tulum center is also where there is more activity during late night. You will find that people go the beachside area in the daytime for a swim, and in Tulum center in the evening and late night. The beachside road and Tulum center are separated by a Mangrove forest therefore, all AirBNB communities can only be found in the Tulum center zone which is about 2-4 miles from the beachside area. Below are some example distances from our location to some of the attractions:
- Tulum center - walking distance, about 0.5 miles (1km)
- Holistika holistic center and cafe - 0.35 miles (600 meters)
- Grand cenote - ~ 3 miles (5.5km)
- Maya ruins and beach - ~ 3 miles (5.5 km)
- Kaan Luum Lagoon - ~ 5 miles (9.5 km)
- Papaya playa resort and beach - ~ 3.5 miles (6km)
- Playa Pescadores (Tulum public beach) - ~ 3.5 miles (6km)
- Xel-ha adventure/natural park and Dos Ojos Cenote - 11 miles (19.5 km)

It's Mexico! Few things that some guests from America, Canada and Europe have to get used to are:
* occasional electricity outages lasting 1-2 hours max
* occasional wi-fi signal being affected from severe weather (since Tulum has satellite based internet)
* unpaved roads

Host

I am a physician and a Ayurvedic health and wellness practitioner. Louchia is a yoga teacher and Ayurvedic & Nutrition therapist and counselor. We opened our first Ayurveda education center in Turkey in 2012, where we have been hosting tired souls, curious seekers, and enlightened healers of all types, who come to enjoy the region but also receive Ayurvedic and spiritual education from us. We opened the Tulum center in December 2018 and hoping to provide the same here. When we are not helping the community with our health education initiative, we rent our home here on Airbnb, while we also seek to travel and stay with other Airbnb hosts.
