Where do i even start? If i didnt have real world responsibilities i would have never left. The vibe at this place is immediately welcoming and Tom is as fun as he is helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are really cool and clean, the atmosphere is on point, and the help is stellar. I was mainly on a relaxation and fishing mission here in Tulum and i accomplished both goals with flying colors. Frank, one of the owners was kind enough to give me some tips for fishing the local waters and i ended up with a nice barracuda in the Sien Khan. Nestled in the middle of Beach Rd in Tulum, I found the location of Las Palmas Maya to be close enough to Nightlife and far enough from any hustle and bustle that whatever my mood was i could be accomodated. Its an easy hitchhike or bike ride into town and a hop skip and a jump from the beach (aka across the one lane road) The people i met were amazing. One new found local friend i made even brought Tom and i a fresh lobster and snapper dish he had made, Delicious! I had an unforgettable experience here in Tulum and I feel its safe to say I will be frequenting Las Palmas Maya in the years to come and look forward to seeing Tom and the pups again.
