Encantada Tulum Review

Tulum has become a popular international destination, but there is a concern about preventing overdevelopment. Encantada Tulum hotel can alleviate some of these worries as it is not over-polished and adds to the natural charm of the area.

The place has a rustic feel with thatched roofs and handmade crafts, but it still offers luxurious amenities within its eight rooms. The rooms feature king-size beds, hardwood floors, wraparound decks, and air conditioning for when the natural breeze isn’t enough. Despite its size, the inn provides a quiet and intimate atmosphere.

Despite its small size, this hotel has two restaurants. Encantada Restaurant is open from 8am to 5pm and serves breakfast, snacks, juice, and cocktails. Nü Tulum takes over for dinner and has a menu prepared by a team of chefs from Mexico City. The hotel is situated in a great location that allows guests to easily explore Tulum’s shops, restaurants, beaches, cenotes, lagoons, and Mayan ruins.

Traveling to 🇲🇽 Mexico soon?

I recommend these travel resources for Mexico that I personally use:

🏨 Hotels: I have found that Expedia and Booking.com consistently have the best deals on hotels and resorts in Mexico. If you prefer to stay at a vacation rental, check VRBO that is usually cheaper than AirBnB’s added fees!

✈️ Flights: To find the best flight deals to Mexico, I always use Kayak. Remember to subscribe to their price alerts for the travel dates you want. Another great alternative for flight deals is Expedia.

🚗 Rental Cars: I always use and highly recommend Discover Cars because it allows me to compare several car rental companies and view ratings on various factors such as overall value, pick-up procedure, agent efficiency, car condition, and total time taken.

🚙 Cancun Airport Transportation: For the fastest and easiest way to travel, I suggest arranging a private transfer with Cancun Airport Transportation. Honestly, no better way to travel from the airport to your hotel or resort.

🤿 Tours & Activities: For tours and activities in Mexico, I highly recommend using either Viator or GetYourGuide. These websites offer a full refund if you cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the tour, and they also provide excellent customer service in case of any issues.

🚨 Travel Insurance: I always suggest purchasing travel insurance as a precaution before traveling, especially after a recent accident in a taxi in Mexico. For short trips, I recommend Travel Insurance Master, whereas for digital nomads, Safety Wing is a better option.

📷 Best Camera for your trip: I always carry with me a GoPro, It’s light, compact, takes great video and pictures, and most importantly, it’s waterproof! You just can’t go wrong with one. If you are interested in higher quality video and photography, I always carry with me on my trips and highly recommend the Sony A7IV which I think is the best travel DSLR Camera out there.

☀️ Biodegradable Sunscreen: Remember to include a good sunscreen to protect yourself from the summer sun. I always use and suggest Sun Bum Sunscreen, which is vegan, reef-friendly, and cruelty-free.
