|Imagine the Caribbean Sea, a beachside cabana without electricity or telephones,
only the sound of birds to wake you up in the morning and the murmur of sea waves
to lull you to sleep at night.
This is Azulik villas in Tulum, a small cluster of fifteen private beachfront villas
with a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea.
The Azulik villas in Tulum are fully constructed of fine local hardwoods, with a large private deck to enjoy the spectacular sea view to the East and a series of ceiling to floor windows to enjoy the tropical jungle to the West.
Wake up early for a swim in the sea, or stay in to enjoy room service on your private beachfront terrace overlooking the Caribbean.
Spend your days filled with activities:
explore the coral reef in a sea kayak with snorkel gear to check out the details below; hike through the tropical jungle in search of spider and howler monkeys;
discover ancient Mayan culture in our mystical initiations at local archaeological sites,
including Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza.
Or not... spend your entire vacation hidden away in your own private Azulik villa,
Enjoy your dinner on your terrace under the moonlight, with an after dinner drink in your own
Couples and honeymooners seeking a relaxing, romantic, intimate getaway will love Azulik.
|Tulum it is where we can relax and enjoy peace and quiet.
It is beautiful and quaint. (of course the Tulum ruins are there too.)
We recommend staying in one of the beachfront cabanas...but if you are on more of a budget travel, stay in town and explore the beaches and the ruins during the day.
The actual town of Tulum is not situated on the beach but is about 3km, a 50 peso (approx. $5 US) cab ride away.
In town offers you more restaurants, handicrafts, grocery, fresh fruit and vegetable markets, Bital bank etc... this is a small town but can provide necessities.
I think we would always recommend making reservations before arriving but maybe if you are more of a free spirit, you could show up, grab anything for the first night then explore the amazing small beach hotels and find what you want.
Most places have hammocks right outside your room, very addicting.
Some of the beach hotels operate with solar power, the nights are lit with candles and oil lamps, the lack of ambient light creates a heavenly feeling. It is a wonderfully romantic place but you do not have to be with a significant other to enjoy it.
Another "must see", visit Gran Cenote which is approx 6 km from the beach
of Tulum on the road to Coba.
As far as the ruins go...we do recommend going once, but go early in the
morning or late in the afternoon.
It gets bus loads of people from about 10:30am on. It has been commercialized a bit but can still be a nice historical stop.
If interested in the history, we suggest paying a tour guide (most languages) to show you the site.
They are available around the entrance of the Ruins. Could cost a couple to tour the site around $30 US dollars with a guide.

If you choose to drive from the Cancun airport, take the highway south until you reach the crossroads leading to the Tulum hotel zone, where you will turn left, heading toward the sea. Once the road forks, turn right. We are the third resort, located just 700 m. from the fork in the road. From Cancun it is about 1 hour and 30 min. drive by car
If you prefer a more economical method of traveling south from the airport to Copal, you can now take a bus to Playa del Carmen directly from the Cancun International Airport! The new Riviera bus line leaves the airport for Playa at 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:30, 11:45, 13:00, 15:00, 16:00, 17:00, 18:15, and 19:30 hrs. daily (about $6.50 USD. per person, 45 minutes). From Playa del Carmen, you can take either a first- or second-class bus to the Tulum pueblo (about $3.50 USD. per person, two or more hours). First class buses are faster than second class ones, as they do not make as many stops along the highway. Alongside the Tulum pueblo bus station you will find a taxi stop, where you can take a cab directly to Azulik (about $3.50 per car, maximum four people per vehicle, about ten minutes).
The fastest and easiest way to reach Azulik from the Cancun airport is with a direct shuttle, which we can have arranged for you. The same shuttle service is available for your return to the Cancun airport. Our shuttle service runs 24 hours. No time is too late!
Shuttles are less expensive than taxis and more comfortable and more convenient than taking the bus from Cancun city to Tulum pueblo. By shuttle, it is about one hour and thirty minutes to Azulik from the Cancun airport. If you are interested in placing a reservation for a shuttle, please e-mail us with your airline name, departure city, flight number, and time of arrival.
We need at least 48 hours advance notice to book a shuttle; please plan ahead.
