Where to Eat

Hartwood – You’ll dine under the stars beneath swaying palm trees at this picturesque spot. The restaurant uses wood burning ovens and open grills to prepare fresh, local food (from grilled fish to pork belly). Meanwhile, the beach huts, whitewashed roofs, wooden tables, and candles all add to the romantic atmosphere.

Where to Drink

Gitano – The jungle merges with a club atmosphere at Gitano, one of Tulum’s hottest restaurants. Overall, it’s a terrific choice for capping off the night with mixed drinks and light snacks. Couples have a long list of terrific cocktails to choose from, however our favorite is the Stardust, made with mezcal, dark rum, pineapple, papaya and a homemade coconut cream.
