“A fun atmosphere, family owned and operated and popular with locations in Playa del Carmen and Cancun, and now Tulum, Los Aguachiles offers wonderful service with a smile. Almost next door to Camellos, on the south end of town. Get the best Michelada in town. What’s in a Michelada? Worchester sauce, spice, chiles, lime juice on the rocks with a salted rim to which you combine your favorite Mexican beer...of course! Healthiest tacos in town, try their “Figurina” which is a lettuce wrap with your choice of ceviche, smoked tuna and many other yummy options. Great entree options with an incredible “whole fish of the day” platter. ”

“Delicious and affordable are the main characteristic of this restaurant. Manglar is our favorite pizza place in Town. Their menu is simple and perfect. The Pizza is the Star of the show here, but the Salads are great too. ”

Yucatecan Restaurant
“Humo is a relatively new restaurant which conquered our hearts from the very beginning, every single dish we have tasted here we have loved! It is located on the south end of town and it will catch your attention because of its very sophisticated yet funky spherical spiral bamboo structure. Prices are fair and food is truly inspired, not only in Mexican flavors but in Mexican culture and traditions. ”

“The best place in Tulum to do yoga. A gorgeous hotel on the edge of town and the jungle, also has a restaurant and is a lovely place to explore. Check their schedule for special events like sound baths, etc. If you are an intermediate/advanced yogi, I highly recommend Itzel’s classes.”
