Experience ocean views and tropical vibes in these amazing resorts on Tulum Beach, Mexico.

Looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Cancun with a relaxing luxury stay in Tulum? You’re in luck.

I noticed on my recent trip to Tulum that the accommodation options along Tulum’s Hotel Zone have multiplied, and there are now plenty of great luxury hotels and all-inclusive resorts to choose from which is a huge change from previous years.

My favorite resort choice is the Mi Amor a Colibri adult-only hotel as it not only offers a relaxed vibe but also excellent access to a white sand beach. Admittedly you cannot go wrong with an adult-only choice as the noise and overall atmosphere is calmer.
