Tulum's Best Beach Club

Updated: Mar 22

Picture yourself waking up to the sound of gentle waves lapping against the shore, with the soft sand just steps away from your doorstep. That's the magic of Cinco Tulum, in my honest opinion Tulum's Best Beach Club, where ancient Mayan ruins meet crystal-clear turquoise waters and luxurious glamping.


Forget traditional camping tents – here, you'll find spacious, beautifully appointed accommodations that combine the best of outdoor living with modern comfort. Think plush beds, stylish décor, and well-thought amenities with panoramic views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea.

Tulum's Best Beach Club

But the real adventure begins as you step outside your tent and onto Playa Paraíso. There, you'll find Cinco's famed beach club. I adore their layout, which includes bean bags, lounge chairs, and two-seater day beds – there's something for everyone. Expect nothing less than exceptional hospitality from the friendly staff, while the restaurant offers high-end cocktails with local delicacies.


Feeling adventurous? Explore the vibrant coral reefs just offshore with a snorkelling or diving excursion facing Tulum's renowned archaeological site, well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan walled city overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The site is notable for its stunning coastal location, compact layout, and unique architectural features, making it one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico. I personally joined a 1-hour snorkelling excursion just off the beach and saw stingrays and a grazing sea turtle.

Best Kept Secret

Thanks to its close proximity to the archaeological zone, the surrounding beach closes to visitors at 6pm, leaving hotel guests to enjoy the sunset. I strongly recommend taking a walk on the beach after dinner. You'll be surprised by how bright the moon is – at least I was – and how serene it is, with just you and the occasional passerby.

How To Get There?

I flew from Mexico City to Cancún. After a few days in Cancún, I took an Ado bus from Cancún to Valladolid, and again from Valladolid to Bacalar, and finally from Bacalar to Tulum. I took a taxi from the city centre to Cinco, it's a twenty minute drive to the beach and you must pay a federal entry fee as the hotel's located in close proximity to the archeological site.
