Tulum is synonymous with the words boho, luxury, chic and wellness and this resort town on Mexico’s Riviera Maya is only getting more and more popular each day. Tulum certainly doesn’t lack in accommodation either. In fact, it has some of the most beautiful places to stay imaginable and Tulum Airbnbs and Tulum VRBO rentals all have one thing in common; tropical boho vibes that will make you never want to leave.
In Tulum, you’ll find stays for every budget, from pretty, airy studios in Tulum town to jungle villas with pools and private cenotes nearby.
I’ve carefully selected the best Tulum Airbnbs, each one a tranquil space where you can really indulge and feel the Tulum energy and atmosphere, practise yoga, soak in a plunge pool and practise some morning meditation. They are perfect for the wellness or health-focused traveller or anyone wishing to unwind in style.

TULUM AIRBNBS & VRBOS: THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE BOOKING
↠ Tulum is divided into two parts, Tulum town and Tulum beach. Most vacation rentals are located in Tulum town and you’ll need transportation to get to the beach i.e. bicycle or scooter. If you prefer to stay right on the beach, it’s better to book your stay in a boutique hotel with booking.com.

↠ It’s really hot in Tulum so make sure to choose an Airbnb with a pool and at least a fan if not air conditioning. Swimming pools aren’t an expensive addition nor are they hard to find but they make all the difference in the sweltering heat.
↠ Many Tulum Airbnbs and VRBOs offer bike rental or free bikes so try to go with those. As most Airbnbs are situated in Tulum town, it’s a 20-minute bike ride from the centre of town to the beach (more from La Veleta). This will save you on taxis or having to rent bikes as an added extra. It’s not uncommon to have taxi drivers try to charge $100 just to get from Tulum town to the beach.
