Live like a freewheeling hipster in Tulum

visit

This boho-chic city, beside turquoise waters and sublime ruins, attracts a trendy crowd.

Formerly known as Zama (‘Dawn'), the first explorers renamed this city Tulum, which means ‘wall' in the Mayan language. Tulum is a majestic archaeological site right on the sea. It is also a bohemian chic seaside resort that attracts hipsters from all around the world. In Tulum, bump into people like Orlando Bloom, Gisele Bündchen, and the Roitfeld family.

Do your yoga overlooking the ocean, detox with the freshest juices, and sample fusion food that blends world cuisine with Mexican flavours. At Tulum, you get up with the sun and go to bed early. This city has a special atmosphere. Everything is beautiful, Zen, and on a human scale. The trendy restaurants bring together Mexican and European inspirations.

People come for the weekend, rent bikes, and take advantage of kilometres of beach. Book a ‘cabana' at the Coco Tulum boutique hotel. These are small huts with thatched roofs that sit on the white sand surrounded by palm trees. Facing the sea, you will wake up to the sound of the waves before going to drink the kale, cucumber, and mango juice waiting for you at the beach bar.
