Tulum sits 130 km south of Cancun, Mexico nestled between white-sand Caribbean beaches and lush tropical Yucatan jungle. As a result, it’s a favorite destination for nature-loving travelers. So, it comes as no surprise there are some fantastic Tulum glamping spots to experience.
The Yucatan Peninsula is full of natural wonders and beauty. Certainly, Tulum is a place where you can spend your days playing or relaxing on a pristine beach, swimming in mystical cenotes, exploring ancient Mayan ruins, and having epic jungle adventures.
Meanwhile, evenings in Tulum are best spent enjoying delicious meals and creative cocktails at one of the many bars and restaurants along the beach or in town before retiring to your Tulum glamping site to sleep comfortably surrounded by nature.

Glamping types in Tulum include luxury tents, cabanas, geodesic domes, and even tree houses and are situated in unique settings such as jungle, cenotes, and right on the beach.

Guest Review: “Casa Nawal was a beautiful beach retreat with a relaxing and earthy vibe. We initially were placed in a beautiful tent on the interior of the resort, but after one night realized there was a bonfire in close proximity which bothered my asthma. We spoke with the staff and they graciously moved our tent to a beach front location away from the smoke smell. The tent was equipped with an AC at night as well as a very comfortable bed. Each day after we got back from exploring we were greeted with a freshly made bed and new towels. The bathroom facilities were also always clean and well stocked. Just to the left of the resort was a great bar/restaurant which had wonderful food, music and beach seating. Such a chill vibe with great people from around the world. I would definitely recommend!”

Slightly off the main strip (with easy access), meant that this place seems very exclusive. The chef made the best food I had in Tulum (try the breakfast). All the staff were so friendly and helpful.
