    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...ico</wbr></wbr>.

        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!!!

          Awesome! I've never stayed at Mezzanine, but my sister stayed there this past time and loved it, they have great food there too.


          Next week! I'm so excited for you!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!

            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.
