Tulum is a perfect off-the-grid vacation where it’s just you, the ocean and some amazing Mexican food. Tulum has been deemed one of Mexico’s first sustainable tourism zones. Most of the town’s eco-friendly values are manifested through the dining scene’s fire-to-table menus, curated items based on the daily catch at sea, and little to no architecture with most of restaurants being completely outside, exposing you to the enchanting tropical forest. Here’s a comprehensive list of the best restaurants in Tulum, and frankly, you should try them all:
Nomade Tulum | Breakfast
Just a short strut from the beach, stop at this boutique hotel at dawn for breakfast and relax in its bohemian ambience.
Mateo’s | Live Music & Cocktails
Don’t leave Tulum without a visit to Mateo’s. Get a peek of Tulum nightlife and enjoy live music and cocktails on the strip.
Gitano | Live Music & Cocktails
This is THE mezcal bar to visit in town; ingredients are locally sourced & fresh. The open concept is impressive and modern touches can be best described as jungle chic.
The Real Coconut | Occasion: Lunch
A fitting health-conscious option and the perfect lounging spot to people watch while overlooking the oceanside. Take a load off at the sun-beds on the beach or head up to the beautiful bright and airy space at the Real Coconut.
