Need honeymoon help - Where to stay in Tulum

Recommended Posts

I am in desperate need of help. Our wedding is less than 5 weeks away and we still have not booked our honeymoon!!! We are getting married on Isla Mujeres and plan to honeymoon in Tulum. We have fallen in love with photos of the beached there, but we've never been.


My fiance and I are pretty adventurous and prefer a romantic boutique beach hotel with some privacy. We have stayed in an all-inclusive before and it's just not our thing. My ideal place would also have an outdoor shower - how romantic!


Our honeymoon time is going to be pretty short so I want to make sure that everything is perfect for the little time we do have. However, since we are paying for the entire wedding and honeymoon, I need to be somewhat respectful of our budget. I would be comfortable spending up to $300/night.


Any recommendations or reviews would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help! This forum has been great so far.

I just saw this, am I too late to help? I just got back from there so I'd be happy to help if you still don't know where to stay. Also, as an update since you are also getting married at Playa Media Luna- my wedding there was awesome!! We just got back and I have to say that they did an amazing job! 

Good luck with your day and have fun! Tell Maria I said hi!

We have decided to stay at Mezzanine. It is the sister property of La Zebra and it looks nice from the website.


If anyone is looking for information about Tulum, you should check out my friend's travel journal about his trip with his girlfriend. There are a lot of good food recommendations and photos - http://www.everlater.com/natty/shambala-in-mexico/tulum-mexico.

We're also planning to use the Everlater website to upload all of our photos from the wedding. It makes it really easy to create photo books and cards.


And Barbara, thanks again for getting back to me. I will definitely tell Maria hi when I meet her NEXT WEEK!!!

My fiance and I stayed at Mezzanine last April.  It is a small, very nice boutique hotel that has a great Thai restaurant and a cute bar.  No outdoor private showers, but it was a really great hotel!  Make sure that you stay in one of the upper story ocean view suites -- the lower level isn't as nice and is much darker.  Like most places in Tulum, there isn't air conditioning, but there are ceiling fans. 


Go to Trip Advisor for real travel reviews, ratings and pictures -- it really helped us choose our hotel!  By the way, if you can, book a private eco tour (cenote diving/snorkeling, swimming with sea turtles, zipline) with Edventure in Tulum.  They are awesome!  So much fun and reasonably priced.  After our little adventure we hung out with our guide at one of his favorite local spots on the beach and had a few beers and the most amazing food.  :)


Good luck and have fun!  Tulum is gorgeous -- so is Playa del Carmen, so make sure to at least take a day trip there.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
