Relaxed, beautiful setting tucked into the jungle. Food is really excellent, with very prompt, friendly service. Low-key hipster vibe, without being off-putting.

We love experimenting with mexican flavors and rest of the world cuisine, twist's in conventional mexican dishes, or mexican twist's into traditional world known recipes. Freshly cut, muddle on the spot fruit are the main contents of our cocktailery. We focus in a full Tulum experience, great food, drinks, service and ambiance. Fundado en 2013.
