Thursday: Arrive in Tulum & Dinner at Casa Jaguar
The morning of Day One, you'll arrive to the Cancun Airport. With guests arriving from different places, chances are you are going to get in at different times.
Pro tip: Space after the baggage claim in the Cancun airport is cramped, so your best bet is to hang out at the Margaritaville restaurant to your left at the exit and enjoy some tableside guac while you wait for others to arrive. Don't worry, I won't be recommending any more major chain restaurants from here on out!
Once you've located your group and your bags, take a transfer to your hotel. Always book this ahead of time — either through your hotel or with a private transfer like Cancun Airport Transfers. It's worth it!
Next, relax on the beach before dinner. You won't want to pack this day too full, because travel from the Cancun airport can be long. You have a big weekend ahead!
End your first day in Tulum with dinner at Casa Jaguar. This hip, open-air restaurant tucked away in the Tulum jungle is the perfect spot to start your weekend with your crew. They serve up creative cocktails and fresh seafood with a Mayan twist alongside live music.
A note from Tori
For a bachelorette party, choose a hotel on the beach road in Tulum. You can save money by staying in Tulum Pueblo, but all the fun activities are on the beach and taxis between town and all the hotspots can add up. Plus, you can walk right out your door onto the beach in the mornings. What's not to love?!
Friday: Cenotes, Scooters & Dinner at Gitano
Use your second day to explore Tulum's famous cenotes.
Head into Tulum town in the morning and rent scooters for everyone. Have your own Lizzie McGuire Movie moment and cruise down the street to check out favorites like Cenote Calavera and the popular El Gran Cenote. You've definitely seen both of these on Instagram before!
Hungry? Stop at a hole-in-the-wall spot in Tulum town for authentic carnitas tacos before returning your scooters. Then, head back to the hotel and get ready for the night.
Book dinner reservations at Gitano. On Friday nights in Tulum, Gitano is the place to be. Neon lights, jungle vibes and delicious cocktails characterize this ultra-cool bar in Tulum. And not only does Gitano have great vibes, the food is incredible as well!
A note from Tori
Book a reservation well in advance for a late dinner at Gitano, so when the DJ arrives and it turns to dancing, you're already in the door.
Saturday: Yoga, Spa & Party at Papaya Playa Project
Take things easy during the day on Saturday, because Saturday night will be one of the most fun nights of the trip.
Start the morning with a beachfront yoga class at Papaya Playa Project. This hotel hosts daily yoga at their gorgeous open air waterfront studio. Nothing is more soothing than savasana with the sound of waves gently crashing in the background. General entry is $25, but if you're staying at PPP, just show your wrist band and it's free!
Today is also a great day for spa appointments at Yäan Wellness. Spas are aplenty in Tulum, and chances are the hotel you are staying at has one. The ultimate spa experience in Tulum though, is at Yaan Wellness. Tulum certainly knows how to throw a party, but this spot is a serene oasis amidst the house music and overflowing margaritas.
Not only do you get to relax and detox with a spa services (I recommend the lymphatic massage) but you get to enjoy all of the spas amenities for an hour before your service. This includes a luxurious hot tub, cold plunge, steam room with fresh herbs, and even a tray of fruit and tea.
After the spa, treat your freshly detoxed body well with lunch at Raw Love at Ahau. Inside the Ahau hotel property is one of the best vegan spots in Tulum. Don't worry, even if you aren't vegan, you'll still love this place! The raw vegan cakes are out-of-this-world, and I love the acai and kombucha too.
After lunch, stroll the boutiques. It wouldn't matter if you didn't pack a single swimsuit for the trip, because you could find everything you need in Tulum's adorable boutiques. Unique swimwear, coverups and sundresses abound!
Spend your night at a party hosted by Papaya Playa Project. On Saturday nights, this upscale complex of casitas and villas hosts an unforgettable party in the jungle. People flock to the northern end of the beach road from all over Tulum for the house music, drinks and live performers. Where else can you see a glow-in-the-dark body painted performer dance by the ocean?
A note from Tori
Book the bride the "Bride-to-Be" package at Yaan where she can get a full massage, a facial, an herbal bath made from petals or herbs grown on the premises, and an aura cleansing.
Sunday: Brunch & Relax in the Sun
Saturday was a big night, so it's time to enjoy Tulum's food and sunshine on Sunday.
Start your day with Brunch at Bagatelle. This French-and-Mediterranean-focused restaurant on Tulum's beachfront hosts a great brunch on Sunday mornings, and you can even stick around for the day if you make a beach club reservation. While this is an upscale chain, it is worth a visit.
Next, relax and enjoy the sun! If you're staying at a beachfront hotel, chances are you can use the beach beds at no additional charge. If not, rent a cabana for the day and relax. Make sure to order plenty of chips and guac and margaritas to be delivered straight to your perch.
Enjoy dinner on your last night at Hartwood - this is hands down one of the best dining experiences in Tulum. Here, you'll find fresher-than-fresh seafood in an al fresco dining experience. The menu changes, but the tuna tartare I had here was truly life-changing.
Cap off the weekend at Rosa Negra. If you've ever seen videos on Instagram of people holding sparklers at a restaurant in Tulum, this is the spot. It's the perfect way to cap off a great weekend!
A note from Tori
Book your reservation at Hartwood WELL in advance — it's a very popular Tulum reservation. You will need to email the restaurant to reserve. Or, have your travel advisor do it!
Monday: Head Home
On your final day in Tulum, leave plenty of time to head home.
Transfer to airport (arranged roundtrip through your hotel or a private 3rd party like Cancun Airport Transportation). This will take around an hour and a half, and it's recommended to arrive for international flights four hours ahead of time. I wouldn't plan too much into your day on Monday so you aren't pushing it with travel time.
Say goodbye to your friends and the jungle and safe travels!
