WWH takes Tulum
You know those places that give you major holiday-envy on Instagram? The one with glistening blue seas, white sand and major Insta-worthy spots? You know exactly what we were talking about. Tulum is every Instagram aficionado’s dream and HOW. Every nook and corner of this destination looks something straight out of a surreal poster. Everything is so pretty, the seas so blue, the beaches so clean and the ambience ever so vibrant.
Tulum is a holiday lover’s dream and trust us when we say that if relaxation and chilling is your only agenda, you’re coming to the right place. Tulum’s natural laidback way of living lets you leave your stress and any tension or baggage behind. It’s a spot that helps you unwind from the inside out. Social media included! Even though we had access to Wi-Fi everywhere, we were glad that phones didn’t have network or connectivity, which gave us our much-needed social media detox. Talk about rejuvenating!
Although our honeymoon plans were charted for Italy, due to last minute visa issues we redirected our trip to Mexico, and man, are we glad we did! Our trip was absolutely spontaneous and unplanned. Being virgin visitors, Tulum has been a gem of a find and if you’re planning a trip to this holiday haven soon, let us play guide and give you a low-down of all the must-sees and must-visits!
Our trip began with our stay at Coco Limited, a limited version of Coco Tulum. Much like its name, the hotel is a small and sweet hotel that is extremely well kept and quiet. It ticked all the right boxes and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of stay! What can you expect there? The friendliest staff and food so scrumptious, it’ll make your taste buds tingle with excitement.
If you’re going with the sole intention to chill and unwind, you’re doing it right. Coco Limited has the cutest little private cottages with personal balconies; perfect to spend your evenings with a stunning sunset for a view and a drink in your hand, lying on your hammock. We’re talking lazy times and drinks, a sinful combination too good to resist. If an extraordinary experience is what you seek, Azulik is the place to go. Everything here is made of cane and bamboo and is an out-of-the-world accommodation experience. Seat-nests that look up to the sky and the most stunning rooms you’ve ever seen (really, check them out on Instagram!), there is no other place you would want to live in. All said and done, it is a little heavy on the pocket but pretty things come with hefty price tags although this one was well-worth it. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the food in Tulum was to die for. The fettuccine there really puts the EAT! in ‘great'.
We had a lovely manager at Coco Limited who chaperoned us and helped us with all the activities and places we should do and visit. Including the loveliest cafes and nature spots, we started our checklist right after! Listing them down for any potential Tulum travellers post reading this post!
Arca: Said to have the best food in Tulum, this place is almost always fully booked so if you’re feeling adventurous, definitely visit Arca!
Kitchen Table: A foodie’s delight and a highly recommended spot to visit for any gastronomical adventurer.
Papaya Playa Project: Yet another party hub.
Other than this:
We may be back in Mumbai, but we left our hearts in Tulum. Spontaneous trips really are the best and we wouldn’t change this happy accident for any other vacay!
