Family Friendly Splurges
OK. So the price does edge above Green Postcards $150 self-imposed limit. But you are sharing these digs with several people. If most of them are grown-up, you can split the bill, right?
Family Suite: Sleeps six. Upstairs master suite with king bed and tub. Downstairs has a queen bed and two bunks. Private bath. Low season: $150/night. High season: $190/night. Holiday season: $250/night.
Kanab: Sleeps four. One king bed and two bunk beds. Big windows for the sea views. Private bathroom. Low season: $140. High season: $170. Holiday season: $220.
Noh: Sleeps four with the same configuration as Kanab, minus the sea view. Low season: $120. High season: $150. Holiday season: $200.
Splurge Option, #2: Eco Tulum also owns Azulik, 15 beach-front villas that offer privacy, simple luxury, and constant concierge attention. Rates are $255 - $390/night based on villa and season.
As I mentioned before, you might want to pick up a guide to Tulum before you go. At the very least, you can use it as a pillow as you’re lounging in the Mexican sun.
