Having been to Mexico before, I was bit skeptical of the hype. How different could it really be? I took advantage of the  opportunity to explore during a friend's wedding weekend. I fell in love with how natural and chic every  single place was. Tulum is truly jungle meets beach and it's such a short trip from the US. I loved every single second of our trip, now all you have to do is pick where to stay from all the incredible options.

Where to stay
Casa Malca - ultra chic boutique hotel with hammocks everywhere
Nomade - the cutest eco friendly hotel on the beach, the room options include tents!
Azulik -  probably the most picturesque hotel on the planet, open rooms entirely made of wood

Where to eat
Casa Banana - you have to have the steak here
Gitano - Dinner and dancing
La Eufemia -  chill tacos on the beach
Papaya Playa - for the full moon party
Hartwood - make sure to reserve in advance
Ocumare - delicious dinner and drinks from a Michelin star chef

What to do
Beach - obviously (as well as exploring the cute shops on the main road)
Cenotes - swimming in underground grottoes was such an amazing experience and there are so many to choose from

Have you guys been to Tulum? Did I miss anything?
