Gypset Guide to Tulum

We all know that Tulum is small town on Mexico's Caribbean Coast south of Cancun and that its known for its 13th century archeological site, Cenotes and Coba ruins nearby.

We also know that every January BPM takes place in Playa del Carmen and a lot of people chose to stay in Tulum. What we don't know is what attracts them to this small village, far from developed Cancun. In last 15 years Tulum has transformed into a hippie paradise, model hangout and party goes Mecca.

Riding a bike in Tulum

Best time to go:
the best time to go is from Christmas throughout BPM. Our recommendation would be to spend NYE in St Barth, Miami or Trancoso and fly to Tulum from the 3rd until the 14th. You gonna catch both crowds - New Yorkers who come for  New Years and pre BPM International party crowd. Staying over BMP you are risking mixing with party goes whose usual habitat is Playa del Carmen.

Where to stay:

Be Tulum - simply the best to stay or hang out

Smile - Be Tulum hotel 

Ana Y Jose - luxury boutique hotel with nice SPA
