Yoga. Tacos. Yoga. Party. Repeat.
Tulum is a beautiful, lively town 2 hours south of Cancun. It’s got two sections. The hotel zone that is on the beach and Tulum Center which is 30 minute bike ride inland. Both are composed of equal parts party, tacos and yoga.
Yoga in Tulum Center.
There’s a few yoga studios in Tulum Centro. I went to Yoga Dicha. It was so diverse and great! I love that they have both local and expat teachers and a diverse range of classes. I showed up thinking I was going to take a power class, and it ended up being a Yoga Nidra class ( it’s hard to keep track what day of the week it is when you’re travelling for a month.) This Yoga Nidra Class was so cool and intense! Best Yoga Nidra Class I’ve ever taken! It was Full Moon Silent Disco. We had headphones on listening to an awesome DJ while being led by a great yoga teacher, lily. Class started with a easy flow and then got into Yoga Nidra. Her guided meditation was super interesting with techniques I’ve never experienced. There were times that I felt so relaxed that I felt like I was super awake and asleep at the same time.
Then I took a Power Vinyasa Class with Mariana. I sweat so much. It was powerful and challenging, but also steady and rejuvenating. Her sequencing was super creative, but familiar enough to follow!
This Studio know how to pick their teachers! Do check out!!
Vegetarian Food in Tulum Centro.
I’ll be honest, I ate almost every meal at La Hoja Verde. I didn’t eat any street food, because I lost my debit card and was running low on cash. Thankfully, there were some resturants that accepted credit cards including La Hoja Verde. La Hoja Verde was like so amazing. It’s a vegetarian place with mexican food. I had amazing trumpet mushrooms. Amazing Chorizo Tacos. Amazing Green Juice. Amazing Kombucha.
Staying in Tulum Centro.
My first few nights I stayed in Tulum Center at Hostel Che. Wooo, DONT stay here if you want to sleep well before 2am. I mean honestly I had a lot of fun. They have parties and you dont have to worry about walking home drunk, because you’re already there! They also have “free tours” everyday. The tours aren’t really free, it’s just like a structured taxi ride to random places. We checked out Pablo Escobar’s supposed Tulum Mansion. It was filled with expensive and chilling art. The cocktails were delicious, but expensive. We also hit up Gran Cenote and it was so beautiful!
