The Top 5 most romantic spots in Tulum:

1) Best Beach: Tulum

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 in 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) Best place to connect with Nature: Sian Ka’an

Sian Ka’an is a natural biosphere reserve and a world heritage site. It is one of the most spectacular and ecologically diverse places on the planet. As one of the largest protected areas in the Caribbean Sea, there is countless vegetation and wildlife to observe. Just a short distance from Tulum city, it is the perfect place to spend an adventurous day together as a couple.

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 waiting in line for your table isn’t the best way to spend your date night. For an experience equally as romantic with delicious food, we recommend Posada Margherita. The open kitchen concept, twinkle 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 or sunset, this sea view ruin is nearly secluded which makes it the perfect time of day to enjoy this amazing place.
