Finding the perfect place for your vacation can be overwhelming, no matter whether it is for a long stay or a short trip. I have selected these few Airbnb Tulum in Mexico to help you with this daunting job. You can find the most gorgeous home for each area and a short description of the area. I hope it helps.

With its endless white sand beach, turquoise sea, spectacular boutique hotels and homes, international cuisine, and a bohemian feel, Tulum has been attracting a significant number of expats over the years who decide to make Tulum their home in paradise.

Quickly Tulum became famous for its boho-chic Tulum lifestyle, a dream place to live or at least to spend a few weeks, and more and more visitors flocking from all over the world create a huge demand for new places to stay for any budget.

More and more spectacular homes are being built and all competing for the most amazing stylish decor and best location.

I have been living in Tulum many times for different months and enjoyed living the beach boho life and exploring around.

These Airbnb in Tulum that I am sharing are the most incredible homes I have found among the Airbnb in Mexico. You can scroll down for a detailed description or you can just trust me and see the top selection here below.

TULUM BEACH AREA – Beach Front Bungalow with infinity pool – If you want to dip your feet in the sand as soon as you step out of your rustic-chic bungalow in Tulum.

ALDEA ZAMA TULUMDelightful PH in Bajo Cielo – Spectacular penthouse with your own private rooftop and pool. A dream home indeed

LA VELETABeautiful apartment in the middle of nature – Cute and elegant apartment with stylish decor, in a tranquil condo with free pool access and bike.


Tulum beach is the most demanded area where to stay in Tulum and also the more expensive. It’s definitely a dream to wake up and go for a swim directly from your home. Sleep at the sound of the waves crashing on the shore and nothing else.

Tulum beachside is also a great place to hang out with many restaurants cafes and, well, the endless beach where to walk and enjoy the sun. The design hotels along the beach among palm trees and tropical vegetation create beautiful and harmonic scenery as a beach backdrop.

Only since no long ago, you can find Tulum Airbnbs on the beach as well, and I have selected the best ones for you.

However, if you are a digital nomad and need to work from your place, the beach area is not the ideal place to find fast internet. So make sure you ask before booking.

4 Tropical sun-room – two min. walk to the beach

📍 Tulum Beach · 2 guests · studio · 1 bed · 1 bath ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 💲💲

Cozy small condo of studios, located on the jungle side on the Tulum beach area at only 2 minutes’ walks from the beach.

A very romantic place, suitable for single travelers or couples very nicely decorated in Tulum style, wooden decorations and stone walls, the palm trees around the pool make it a perfect place to chill and relax surrounded by nature.

The place includes a kitchenette and working space and guests say the WIFI is great, which is surprising news as normally in this remote area is an exceptional note.

Also, it is a great value for money even if you don’t have a sea view.

What some of the previous guests say:

This is my favorite place to stay in Tulum! I have stayed here twice now and will return every time. I don’t even want to write how much I love it because I’m afraid it will always be booked! Haha! Daisy is very responsive, which is important to me, and the groundskeeper Martin is so kind and helpful.

“Great reasonably priced place in a superb location..we really enjoyed the balcony. Comfortable bed, nice shower, cute little kitchen.

Great quieter location than the middle and upper beach zone. Like the balcony. AC worked nicely. Parking is unlikely here as there are only 3 spots so try to look around for that, a bit expensive close by. Recommend walking through nomade to get to the beach

Romantic Beachfront Bungalow with Infinity Pool

📍 Tulum Beach · 2 guests · studio · 1 bed · 1 bath ⭐⭐⭐ – 💲💲💲

Located at the end of the beach road towards Siaan Kan, it’s a cozy bungalow to enjoy peace and tranquility right on the beach and surrounded by the tropical jungle.

The bungalow is part of a hotel and you get to enjoy a continental breakfast that is available daily and offered as a courtesy.




I lived in Aldea Zama for two months and it has become my favorite place to stay in Tulum, basically because it’s a sort of residential area with lovely restaurants, cafes. The roads are lined up with tropical vegetation and it’s at an equal distance between down town and the beach area.

It is a relatively new area that is continuously upgrading with the new outstanding luxury condo, and most of them available for rent on Airbnb.

Keep in mind though that to move around from there you will need either to call a taxi or to rent a bike, a scooter, or a car.

You might find that here the prices are the highest in Tulum, but you get the best of the best and if you are working from home WIFI is guaranteed (but always ask before booking if it’s your priority)

What some of the previous guests say:

We had a wonderful time in the apartment, Abraham and the rest of the staff exceeded all our expectations, they were super supportive and helpful, the place was in a great location, very clean and exactly as in the pictures, we totally recommend it.”

GREAT GREAT hosts, very helpful. They will do everything they can to make your stay perfect. GREAT internet and very comfy bed! Very good location – lots of green beautiful plants right outside the balcony! Thank you for everything!

Overall an amazing two-week stay in Tulum. I’d recommend this spot for someone looking to be very close to the beach but a little disconnected from the hustle and bustle. Safe neighborhood and building with security and a gate.

Delightful PH in Bajo Cielo

📍 Aldea Zama – Tulum · 1-2 guests · 1 bedroom· 1 bath ⭐⭐⭐⭐- 💲💲💲

Spectacular 1 bedroom penthouse for a romantic couple getaway, but I would definitely book it as a solo traveler.

You have the rooftop with a swimming pool all for yourself which is a huge plus.

Also, the wooden furniture and stylish decoration create a special cozy ambiance, the perfect place to enjoy some resting time after all day exploring Tulum and surroundings or to stay at home all day to work.

Lovely Airbnb! Perfect location in downtown Tulum, close to food, beaches, and bars!

This is a stunning apartment with the best amenities and location. A quick bike ride to the beach or downtown to explore the city. My husband and I spent a month here and loved our stay. The kitchen is perfectly equipped to spend many nights in, especially during a pandemic. We loved the pool in the morning when the weather was warm and visited the larger pool daily. Be aware, the wifi is good, but you need to be in the kitchen or bathroom area if you plan to take a video call. The wifi does not work in the bedroom. Also, there is massive construction all over Tulum. You will hear it daily and it will bother you. However, it is the price you pay to be in paradise

Place is impeccable, one minor issue and they literally dropped everything and helped us accommodate. This is customer service! Book the place, you’ll thank me later!

La Veleta is a fancy high-end neighborhood, that is in constant development and where the wealthy expatriate community chose to live.

At La Veleta, you can find amazing condos and villas to rent, but also yoga places, nice restaurants, and cute cafes, not to mention the Gipsy Market, where to find organic and vegan products, a sort of jewelry for healthy goodies.

It’s a little secluded on the way out of Tulum in the direction of Bacalar. YOu will need your own means of transportation to move around.

Perfect apartment in the middle of the Nature!

📍 La Veleta – Tulum · 1-2 guests · 1 bedroom· 1 bath ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 💲💲💲

Among all the fancy apartments at La Veleta, I fell in love with this one, for its minimal stylish decor and sleek look. It’s immersed in a lush garden with a pool to relax and chill. An oasis of calm and tranquility.

The apartment is equipped with all the most modern amenities for maximum comfort.

We had a great time at Magdaleno’s place. The pictures are accurate and some of his art pieces are lovely. 

Is wonderful and so stylish.

I have a really good stay. The WiFi works perfect. For me, mosquito is a problem. The price is really worthy to stay. If the sunshine can go inside of the living room will be better.
