mini manifestation guide
Tulum is known for its magic, it’s crystal clear waters, ceremonies, delicious food, and the special kind of people that it attracts. People here are on self-discovery journey, be it be spiritual, social, business, learning to travel alone, wedding trips, etc.
For us, the locals, every day is an adventure because we share so much passion for this place. We love to connect with people from all around the world that have been brought by destiny or the universe to this land that kisses the ocean and meets the jungle mangroves.
I was asked to do a Tulum Guide, which brought me to think and self-reflect about all the different experiences I have had in this magical beach town. (Hey! I know it’s called a city now, but once upon a time, it was a small town).
Tulum as a local
CoWorking from different coffee shops in town and Aldea Zama. Local Projects that keep Tulum alive (LADLE, Puntos Verdes, Alma Animal). Cenote exploring – plenty of options, doing some research, and figuring out which suits your vibe is the best!. Try street food – from vegan to nonvegan, Tulum has a diverse variety and local flavors.
Tulum as a tourist
Temazcal – either a private session or a group session. Secret spot to watch the sunrise (KM 5.5, enter the beach, climb the rocks to your right, and delight yourself with the view). Sian Ka’an Biosphere, just walk on the beach for as long as you feel like it! Cocktails and dancing – let the music from different bars and restaurants charm you. You will find yourself dancing surrounded by beautiful people.
Tulum as a backpacker / solo traveler
Ruins – get there early. Museum Mystika – plan it after the ruins. It’s close by, and it’s a nice shock of AC after being in the sun. Epic art, have your battery ready for a load of photos. Public beach – if you get the chance to go on a weekday, it’s the best. This is the place where locals go on weekends and gets super crowded. Walk on the way opposite the ruins. You will find rocks on sea level. It’s a beautiful walk with picturesque spots.
Tulum as a couple
Early morning, catch the sunrise by the ocean. Kayak or SUP into deep waters & bring Snorkel. Recommended for when the ocean is flat. Rent a bicycle – explore the area. Catch the sunset over the Mayan jungle from a romantic nest
