Recommended beach hotel in Tulum, the top of beach destinations
Mexico's Quintana Roo state has some of the most gorgeous beaches you will ever see. Strung out along the Caribbean coast, with bright white sands and turquoise water, the Riviera Maya
is easily in Mexico's top three beach destinations.
In this glittering region, Tulum stands out as the place to stay if you are the kind of traveller who wants to enjoy the beach, with a little bit extra on the side. And there's no competition for the title of the best beach hotel in Tulum
: the Jashita wins easily, with everything beach fans could ever need.
But let's get back to the beaches. The Riviera Maya has soft, brilliantly white sand that contrasts with the dazzling blue of the ocean. In Tulum, there are not high-rise hotels or massive crowds - just peaceful stretches of sand along the ocean road. If you want to find somewhere to relax and forget about your worries, it's definitely the place to be.
Tulum may not be a party spot, but it is perfectly set up for tourists. There are bars and restaurants
along the Tulum beach road, with plenty of parking and deckchair hire. You can hire snorkels and get to know the local wildlife, or take a short walk to the fascinating ruins of ancient Tulum
, one of the major centres of the Maya civilisation.
But all of this would be pointless without excellent accommodation. When you spend all day at the beach, you need somewhere comfortable to return to every night, and the Jashita fits the bill perfectly.
If you want to blend historical sightseeing and relaxing by the sea, it's the best beach hotel in Tulum
by far. With facilities for divers, fishing fans and snorkellers, as well as a stunning seafront location on Soliman Bay, the Jashita is a beach lover's dream.
