Tulum and Holbox Guide — Estée Lalonde


Matcha Mama:

 Matcha Mama is the place to go for smoothie bowls. They use fresh tropical fruit to create the most insane flavour combinations. I highly recommend if your in Tulum!

Raw Love:

Tulum has options for all food preferences. There is this incredible spot called Raw Love, which specializes in cooking vegan cuisine. They have the best homemade Kombucha which is so refreshing after being in the sun all day.

La Hydra & Italdo:

I’m always in the mood for some pizza. La Hydra and Italdo are the spots to visit if you’re in the mood for Italian. Bonus points to Italido for being located next to a bar with an incredible wine list!

Real Coconut:

Real Coconut is the place to visit for a beach view meal. Their menu is full of fresh and local meat and seafood. You’ll see everything from ceviche to barbecue chicken, to plantain tacos.


Another great vegan spot with upbeat music, a lively atmosphere, and incredible guacamole. Definitely worth checking Laylo out, even if your not vegan.

Antojitos la Chiapaneca:

My mom and I had some insane tacos, chips, and guacamole here. This spot is a great mix of locals and tourists. The fast service makes it a great spot if you need a quick lunch in between activities.


Mezzanine is a really luxurious spot, with an incredible view. The restaurant is located in the Mezzanine hotel. The food is Thai, but there are so many options on the menu. They also have a separate menu if your gluten free or vegan. This would be a really great date spot as well!

Burrito Amor:

If the name wasn’t a dead giveaway, Burrito Amor has some incredible burritos. They are HUGE, and the perfect lunch after a long morning of swimming or exploring around Tulum.


This was probably one of my favourite spots in Tulum. I ate here multiple times, trying everything from french toast, to fresh juice, to the most creamy labneh with roasted zucchini. I think part of what made the experience so surreal, was the atmosphere. It’s located in a peaceful boutique hotel in the jungle. A great spot to escape some of the more tourist populated destinations.

Gitiano Beach:

So many incredible flavor combinations at the Gitiano Beach restaurant. I tried everything from fresh watermelon, avocado, and coriander salad, to churros!
