Get Away To Chic Jungle Beach: Tulum

tulum

It’s hard to believe that an off-the-map jungle-on-white-sand-beaches with stylish, Instagram-ready vibes and fit-for-foodies food, actually exists. Well, believe it or not, it does exist and it’s called Tulum.

Usually in life – you have to make sacrifices – go to the crowded city for good food and fashion or go to a beautiful isolated beach for less-than-mediocre food and no fashion. Tulum gives you both natural beauty and the chic factor, and we’re not sure how this happened but we like to just believe it’s magic. Tulum is an hour and a half car ride away from Cancun, which makes it just far enough not to attract your average tourist or  resort chain. Someone, and we’re not sure who, was a taste-maker from some big city and decided to gypsy their way out of the city and onto the shores of Tulum – and then all the other fabulous taste-makers followed.

When in Tulum, this will be your daily routine: drink some fresh pressed juice, swim in the ocean, have tacos and mezcal on the beach, check out a Cenote (aka a naturally formed freshwater sinkhole cave filled with turtles), shower up and head to a chic dinner. This is the Caribbean ladies, so straight hair is literally impossible and heels are a no go. Be one with the beachy vibes and be free. We recommend: rompers, bikinis, maxi dresses, anything off-the-shoulder, and embellished sandals.

If you consider yourself a well-traveled minx, put the oh-so-dreamy destination of Tulum on your list and stick to these Minx recommendations:
