Cabinet of Chic Curiosities


Going on a trip with a few of my best friends to Tulum, Mexico in January ! I hate touristy. Help!

Where to Stay:

La Valise is a perfect hotel if you want to be on the seafront

Casa Pueblo is an eco, boutique hotel in the city

Where to Eat:

Hartwood for an ever-changing, local and seasonal menu

Nômade is a Moroccan style restaurant with a communal dining room table, if you feel like mingling

Where to Drink:

Stop by the Azulik Tulum resort and make your way to the treehouse rooftop bar in Kin Toh, with magnificent views and cute little nests for sitting in

Things to Do:

Go to the cenotes which are dotted around the Yucatan Peninsula – these are natural water-filled sinkholes which are made when cave ceilings collapse, they are historically important as they were sources of fresh water for the Mayans and therefore considered sacred

For a nature wonder-world with a cornucopia of flora and fauna and endless splendour, visit the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve

Day Trips:

Spend a few days on Holbox, a heavenly island north of Tulum
Admire the differing shades of blue against the white sand at Laguna de Bacalar (the Lake of Seven Colours)

A Bit Further Away:

Mérida is a pleasing city in Yucatán, with cenotes nearby and Ek Balam, which is an option less touristy than Chichen ItzaFind the temple ruin hidden in a jungle full of monkeys and birds (such as toucans) in Calakmul
