The house is in town and you can easily walk to reach the markets and restaurants. Its two terraces are simply amazing, you can drink your coffee, in the morning, while colorful birds sing and in the evening you can appreciate the Tulum life. We are two scuba divers and it's our second time in Tulum, case Ambar & Balam...

Management response:

Thank you Betti. It was great to have you and welcome back next year. Kind regards Maria & Sonia

When I rented this apartment I was aware it was above a healing center. Hmm, perhaps a a massage? Otherwise, I gave little thought to the location. It proved to be a delightful "fulcrum" for alternative healings, teachings, workshops, traditional dance, sound therapy, guided meditation, chiropractic services, traditional Myan medicines, Shamanic healing....and so much more. I was encouraged to attend...

We thoroughly enjoyed our abbreviated stay. Cinzia was most accommodating and helpful in directing us where to eat, places to see etc. The bed was very comfortable and we loved the outside deck for meals and early morning coffee. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family.

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is located in a quiet and safe Avenida but also very central. It is around the corner from the best bars and restaurants, close to all amenities such as banks, bus terminals and shops, 3,5 km to the beach. Close by you can rent bicycles so you can move in Tulum and enjoy all the cenotes and beaches around by yourself.

Tulum has a beautiful, well-known archaeological site that is open daily from 8 am to 5 pm. It is only 45 min to the Coba archaeological site, where you can rent a bicycle and enjoy a day. You can't miss Chitchen Itza, only 2 hours away, it is voted to be one of the seven wonders in the world. The Sian Kaan Biosphere is part of Tulum, where you can visit the mangroves and do bird and crocodile watching. Visit any of the many cenotes (sink holes) in the area, or do some scuba diving in the sea or in caverns.
