Top 7 Aldea Zama Tulum rentals and practical tips

Aldea Zama is an upscale new neighborhood in Tulum. Located halfway between Tulum Down Town (Pueblo) and the entrance to the beach area of Tulum, it’s the perfect place to find your temporary (or permanent) home in Tulum, and in this post, I will tell you why and share the best Aldea Zama Tulum Rentals.


I stayed in Aldea Zama Tulum for about 2 months while I was house sitting and looking after two beautiful cats. I had a bike to move around which was very convenient as walking around in the heat of the most humid months of the year (September and October) would have been impossible.

Aldea Zama Tulum at a Glance

In fact, although Aldea Zama is relatively close to Down Town and the beach you will still need a means of transportation to get there, be it a bike, a motorcycle, or a car. Otherwise, you can always rely on taxis but they are super expensive in Tulum, way above any reasonable fares and that’s why I’d rather use other options.

Keep in mind that in Tulum Uber is not available.

What is Aldea Zama Tulum?

Aldea Zama Tulum is a Residential Area that has been built into what was before a tropical forest full of mangroves and lush vegetation. That is why it sounds a bit ironic when I hear that many ongoing projects are called “Eco Friendly”.

Having said that, it is a very beautiful and relatively safe area where you can find not only exceptional condo hotels with modern design and the classic boho chic Tulum style but also, many nice restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutiques. It’s like a small pretty town within the town, with lots of green, and cycling, and pedestrian lanes.

Many expatriates bought their homes there, some to live in and some others to make an investment and rent it out. In fact, some of the most popular Tulum Airbnb rentals, and, for sure, among some of the most amazing Airbnb in Mexico are located in Aldea Zama.

This is an upscale area and prices are the highest in Tulum, but you can also find some relatively affordable deals every now and then.

If you are working from home, wifi in this area is great, but always make sure you ask the homeowner before confirming the place.

I hope this post was helpful to learn more about the best Airbnb homes in Aldea Zama and how convenient the area is. The only disadvantage, if we need to find one, is that you will need a mean of transportation to move around, but to be honest you would need it from anywhere because as you might have noticed, in Tulum the beach is separated from the main town and the other places to visit in Tulum. Aldea Zama is located in a very strategic location at an equal distance for everything.

Please if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!
