Safari Comedor Zama

Just a 3 min bike ride from condo. Cute and cozy little restaurant. We love to go in the evening when the candles are lit! Our favorite is the ceviche, yucca truffle fries and the tamal cacao. They also have great cocktails and juices freshly squeezed on the spot.

Going to the beach in Tulum
There is easy public beach access on the North beach, just after the Mezzanine hotel.
We also recommend grabbing a daybed at the below beach hotels. Most hotels will allow you to use their beds if you order food or a drink (we think this is the best way to experience the beach!).
(the below are more of a laid back vibe)
Tacos at La Eufemia
No frills waterfront taco joint that lets you hang out all day, just order a drink or fish tacos!
Tulum’s most luxe wellness destination. Almost all treatments include a trip to the healing waters (sauna, steam room, warm and cold pools). Gorgeous!
Mayan Clay Spa
A more affordable option, but great nonetheless. This Spa is unique in that they use Mayan clay vs oils.
Yoga & Exercise
Ahau Tulum Yoga & Spa
Daily morning yoga and meditation classes in their oceanfront studio, which looks out onto the beautiful beaches.
Yoga Shala Tulum
Tulum Jungle Gym
Beachfront circuit style classes on the sand. Best part: all the gym equipment is made from wood, bamboo and stone.
This is a traditionalMexican steam bath (more like a sweat lodge). It promotes physical well-being and healing. While the body rids itself of toxins through sweating, the spirit is renewed through ritual. The temazcal is thought to represent the womb and people coming out of the bath are, in a symbolic sense, re-born.
It is very intense but a great experience if you can stomach the heat!
Many hotels/ spas offer the experience including Azulik, Yaan, Ahau.
Other Things to do:
Explore nearby Cenotes
A unique holistic center where you can take yoga classes, meditation, sound healing sessions as well as massages or a Temazcal. Take a bike ride here and stop at their on site restaurant for freshly squeezed juices. If you walk the property, and you will also discover an outdoor art gallery of wall murals and sculptures within the jungle.
Unique in that you can actually climb some of the structures at Coba for a totally different perspective. Rent a bike and explore!
The road to Coba is also lined with great artisanal shops.
