What is Tulum like during the summer?


Imagine waking up to the sound of exotic birds chirping through your window and the sweet smell of coconuts tickling your nose. Can you picture the orange and purple sunrise when you pull back the curtain? Can you imagine relishing in the beauty of the day’s first rays of light?


While you sip your cup of coffee breathe in the beauty of a new day while we make you breakfast-- all made with local and fresh ingredients-- to enjoy right on the beach. You inhale deeply and smile because you feel surrounded by the tranquil summer vibes.


This is what summer time looks like at Zorba and Mahayana Tulum, our collection of private rental villas on Tulum Beach.


What is the weather like in Tulum?


Spending the summer on the beach may feel like an achievable dream, especially now that COVID restrictions have been lifted in many countries. While some people might think that traveling to Mexico during the summer would be too hot, the shade from the palms and breezes from the sea keep temperatures on the beach just perfect.


During the mornings, the sun starts to warm up making it the perfect time for a yoga class, paddleboard, or run along the sea. Around noon when the temperature gets hot the breeze off the beach refreshes the ambiance. It is the ideal moment to jump into the pool or the sea then relax in the shade.


In the afternoon, a refreshing snack of cold, tropical fruit will give you just the right boost to prepare for a mellow night out. All our villas are equipped with air conditioning for cool comfortable sleeps. Summer is a great time to travel to Tulum and an optimal time to enjoy all there is to offer.



What is there to do in Tulum?


Activities are back pretty much everywhere. And while there are plenty of places to visit around Tulum, the unrestricted access that both Zorba and Mahayana have to the beach makes our holiday homes special. It is truly the best place to explore while feeling comfort and privacy.


At Zorba, the in-house Taco Bar will not only delight you with our amazing fresh, local, and delicious food but also with some refreshing beers and margaritas that will be waiting for you next to your favorite lounging spot. The choice is yours to go out and explore but there is plenty to discover right on our properties.



Stand-up paddleboards, boogie boards, and kayaks are available for you to use and included in your stay. You can also grab a bike within a few minutes walk from our properties and explore the vibrant culture of the Tulum Beach area. If you feel like exploring, there are great spots for yoga, spa treatments, diving, and snorkeling nearby. You can rent gear, go with a tour company or explore on your own. Feel free to ask and we will share some of our favorites.

The turtle nesting season starts in May and ends in November. You will find turtle nests along the beach and in front of our properties. These nests are marked with sticks and protected until they hatch. When the hundreds of baby turtles begin to hatch and make their way to the sea remember to give them space. You can experience this natural wonder from a good distance without disturbing them.


If you can pull yourself away from the sea you will find incredible cenotes, ancient Mayan ruins, and colorful colonial architecture in the area. The Tulum Ruins are less than 10 mins away - go early for the best experience - and the Coba ruins and cenotes are a great day trip.
