The Top 5 Romantic Spots and activities in Tulum
During your stay at Tulum, you will discover an undeniable feeling of romance that beholds our unique destination. Whether you are looking for a secluded spot to unwind or the perfect location to pop the question, Tulum is a wonderful place to be with the one you love.
1) Best Beach: Tulum
The famous expansive white sand beaches of Tulum are mostly private hotel access so it is worth investing in a beachfront location for your holiday stay. Enjoy unrestricted private access to Tulum beach from your doorstep at Mahayana Tulum.
Our Casa Gaia bungalow sits directly by the sea so you can wake up and watch the sun rise from the sea from the comfort of your king size bed. Make morning coffees with the Nespresso provided and slowly greet the day with your bestie by your side. Meander the shoreline to explore the artisans and restaurants or just pop next door to Sanara yoga studio for a guided asana practice by the turquoise sea.
2) Most Romantic Photo Spot (besides the beach!): Follow that Dream Sign
This sign is undeniably the most iconic sign in Tulum, and for good reason. Whether you are holding onto the past, or a limiting frame of mind, this message reminds us to trust ourselves and trust the process. Just a short walk from Mahayana you can snap the perfect photo with this sign to remember your adventure. It is also a great spot to set an iteration and let your dreams flow free!
3) Most Unique Experience: Dos Ojos Cenote
For those of you who don’t know, a cenote is an intricate system of underground, water caves. There are a countless number of these cave systems in the Yucatan Peninsula—the ground in this area is quite porous. The characteristic of a cenote is crystal-clear, sweet water that seems to have been untouched by time. The electric blue hues of the water and the bright green accents from the surrounding jungle are truly breathtaking. At Dos Ojos, it is possible to arrange a private dinner amidst this beauty, which is a sure way to have an unforgettable date night.
4) Best Dinner Date: Posada Margherita
While we love the famous Hartwood Restaurant just as much as the next person. We understand that a bustling scene is not ideal for your date night. For an experience equally as romantic with delicious food, we recommend Posada Margherita. The open kitchen concept, twinkling candle light, and ever magical seaside come together for an undeniably romantic experience. Just remember, it’s cash only.
5) Most Impressive Site: Tulum Ruins
The iconic cliff-side Mayan temple and fortress city is a surreal and powerful place. As the most picturesque archaeological site in all of Mexico, this spot is a beautifully romantic place to make a grand gesture. During sunrise this sea view ruin is the most peaceful which makes it the perfect time of day to enjoy this amazing place.
