City/town information

Welcome to Tulum Mexico Breathe it in… the salty air, the wafting of floral incense, the deep sweetness of tropical flora and fauna…exhale slowly. You have arrived in Tulum. The magic of Tulum and the reason it has become such an extraordinary destination on the Yucatan Peninsula lies not only in the history of the nearby Mayan ruins of the same name, but in the energetic pull the city and sea have over those who come to visit. **Practical Tips: Before going out for the evening, here are some things to know about Tulum’s bars, restaurants and nightlife: Pay in pesos. Most Tulum bars don’t accept credit cards or US dollars. Even if they do take dollars, you will probably end up overpaying. Remember to tip. Tipping 10-15% is customary in Tulum. Just check your bill first to see if the restaurant has already added a “propina” (tip). Use bug spray. It’s a good idea to apply insect repellent before going to outdoor bars on the jungle side of the beach.

Grocery Store Tulum’s version of WalMart

Huge grocery store. Basically the only huge grocery store in Tulum. Many non-food options and full drug-store pharmacy. I recommend this is the best place to shop for large grocery, alcohol, and non-food needs.
