After three blissful days at Cabanas la Luna, we packed up our bags and travelled a whole six minutes up the beach for our final Mexican abode. That is one of the great things about Tulum, you can just drive/ walk a few minutes up the jungle strip and a whole new Tulum experience awaits and a pretty fine one was awaiting us at Chiringuito Tulum. Very chilled, very peaceful with stone and rustic wood finishings and natural textiles, with even the feel of the Med, The Greek Islands meet Mexico perhaps. A relatively small hotel with only 13 rooms, at times it almost felt as if we there on our own, marooned in a perfect hidden spot under the palm trees in Mexico. Chiringuito is set on the southern part of Tulum beach, it is calm, idyllic, stylish and rustic. Another piece of paradise had been found.
Already happily and deeply succumbed to Tulum vibe, we literally dropped off our bags and headed straight back to the beach, nestled on to one of the huge double sun beds, and ordered two rounds of fish tacos and smoothies, (creatures of habit) and literally settled in to this dreamy spot for the next few days.
Apart from the odd wander along the beach and some shopping for Dream Catchers, the rest of our time was spent soaking up the white sand and turquoise waters. The crashing waves and breeze in the palm trees became the perfect sound and back drop to our last few, slow days on the beach. Dozey from beach sleeps, relaxed, sun kissed, (perhaps a little burnt) salty and sandy, we stayed on the beach most nights ’til Golden hour, my favourite times, before heading back to our terrace for the best views of sunset. Then it was showering off the sea, salt and sand and heading out for dinner and margaritas, basically this on repeat for 3 three blissful days.
We have been to Tulum a few times now and I have to say Chiringuito flew straight the top of my list of places to stay. The staff were so friendly, and I’ve not even mentioned the French toast for breakfast. So, so relaxing, beautiful and the most perfect place to make happy memories, in the still more than magical Tulum.
We booked through: Chiringuito, Flew with: Virgin Atlantic, We ate: Chiringuito is a stroll away from some amazing restaurants on the Jungle side, we found some new favourites and headed back to some old favourites: Casa Banana, Casa Jaguar, Rosanegra, Gitano. It’s also worth mentioning the breakfasts at Chiringuito were amazing, the french toast is what dreams are made of.
