Solo travel experience

Tulum is an incredible place - so much to do when you are reveling solo or with a group. If you love delicious food, bustling nightlife and daytime relaxing parties Tulum is a must. I went twice in one year. The ocean in November is a lot cleaner than in April, but there are a lot more parties in April than in November. If you like spiritual rituals there are also sooo many things to try like temazcal and meditation. Prices are a bit steep but it’s well worth it.

Solo travel experience

I went solo twice in the past year and felt safe everywhere. I stayed in the hotel zone and did venture away during the day, as well as at night. I ate so much amazing food. I enjoyed visiting the Mayan Ruins as well.

Group travel experience

We stayed in Tulum which was absolutely amazing. I'd recommend hiring a car if you can as there is so much stuff around that area! We went to some amazing beaches and did some snorkeling around the reef there which is meant to be the 2nd or 3rd largest in the world.
