Exploring Tulum Mexico featuring hotels Azulik & Love Tulum. Here's an informative vlog for my recent trip to Tulum, Mexico, hope you find it helpful!
Thumbs up if you enjoyed this video, if it gets a lot of likes I will do this again for my next trip :)
I first heard about Tulum, Mexico a few years ago but I hadn't seen many vlogs at the time and the info online was a bit more limited than it is now. That being said, I noticed that when we told people we were going to Tulum, it was still relatively unknown compared to other parts of Mexico that tend to be more popular.
So before arriving at Cancun Airport, we already booked our airport transfers for Tulum since there weren't any hotel transfers for the places we booked. I imagine there could be cheaper alternatives, but from the research I did online, USA Transfers had the best reviews and since we hadn't been to Mexico prior to this trip, we just wanted to take the most efficient option we found. Again, we paid $175 US return, but it is based on your hotel distance as well, so definitely check the rates on their website. Also, they will ask for you to pay cash, but if you aren't comfortable travelling with a bunch of cash, just request the online payment option and they will send you a special link to make your payment in advance. I was very impressed with their customer service and I would highly recommend this company for your transportation needs. Here is the website :
For Live Tulum and Azulik, we used Booking.com and they had some special rates when we booked so definitely shop around for deals online. For Azulik, if you have the option, I would highly recommend getting the upper sea villas, the view is incredible and I also believe you are less likely to have any visitors ( creatures lol ) being on the top level. We didn't see anything other than an iguana chilling on our porch briefly one day.
Because the customer service was so lovely at Live Tulum, we naturally compared it to Azulik and we honestly weren't as pleased with Azulik, but I suppose that might be the difference between a boutique experience and a resort. When we were checking out, they asked us to pay a bar tab when we didn't eat or drink anything at Azulik ( I actually asked if they were charging us for the welcome drink they gave us lol ) it wasn't a big deal as it was probably human error, but they didn't apologize for the error so it felts like maybe they thought we were being sneaky or something? it definitely wasn't as friendly as the departure at Live Tulum.
Live Tulum Highlights :
Walking distance to the city/town with restaurants/gift shops
Free bike rentals ( refundable deposit )
Balcony Movie Nights
Great Customer Service
Walking distance to many restaurants in the "hotel zone"
