Mahayana Tulum
"The ONLY place we stay in Tulum. Period. Wifi is INSANELY GOOD."

My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at Mahayana (and the sister property, Zorba) a few times. We've stayed in the larger homes like Casa de las Palmas (extraordinary) and the largest home on Zorba's property... this trip being that it was just the two of us we decided to spend a few nights in the Eclectic Treehouse and a few nights in Casa Gaia.


Both were phenomenal in different ways. FIRST, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO WORK REMOTELY FROM TULUM BEACH THERE SIMPLY IS NO BETTER OPTION. We spent weeks looking into wifi reliability, speed, etc. as we are both working tech professionals who spend all day on Zoom meetings. The wifi was not only incredibly reliable the entire week but it was legitimately faster than our apartment in San Francisco -- I don't even know how this is possible! Have no fear if you need to work from paradise -- Mahayana clearly made a great investment in upgrading to the best internet available on the beach. This is worth the price alone.


Eclectic Treehouse - great for travelers on a bit of a budget but who want to stay on the beach and close to the best restaurants and bars in Tulum. The treehouse is a mix between a tiny home and a beach treehouse bungalow. We were obsessed with it -- has everything you'd need for 2 people and the price simply cannot be beat.


Casa Gaia -- where do I even begin... my husband and I have traveled all over the world (50 countries and counting) and I can confidently say that Casa Gaia is one of, if not the most beautiful place I've ever stayed. The architecture, amenities, and VIEW are unreal. Worth every damn penny.


Finally, the staff at Mahayana from the owner to the manager to the day-to-day cleaning and maintenance staff are incredibly warm, welcoming, and helpful. We always feel like family when we stay with them -- it's a 5 star experience. If you're a couple or a group looking for the absolute best that Tulum has to offer... if you want to feel like royalty in some of the most beautiful homes on the planet within the gorgeous scenery of Tulum's beach / jungle I cannot urge you enough to book at Mahayana (or Zorba). It will be one of the best vacations of your life.    ~ April 2021
