“Best Accomodations in Tulum!”

My family recently returned from a return trip to Tulum AND a return stay at Posada Yum Kin….the best place to stay in Tulum. Accommodations for our 8 night stay were perfect….#7 for a family of 4. The suite is very well appointed with bottled water, coffee maker, blender for those homemade margaritas, dishes, wifi and A/C. The rooms have many windows and you are up in the trees, so the A/C is really not needed. We slept comfortably every night. From a delicious breakfast every morning including hot and cold entrees and fresh fruit and juices to a sun deck to soak up the rays to a refreshing pool to cool off to a hammock on your private porch for a siesta, there is no reason to leave Posada Yum Kin but you will as there is much to do in and around Tulum. Now to the people….Liz is always available to ensure your stay is the best whether it’s something you need for your room or suggestions for sights, restaurants, etc. The staff always greet you with a smile and keep the rooms and grounds spotless. The hotel is situated in a residential area about a 10min walk from downtown. You awake to the roosters and the man selling bread/pastries from his bike. You feel like you are part of the community and the Posada Yum Kin family no matter how long you stay. We rented a car and enjoyed the flexibility of taking day trips when and where we wanted. However, on our first trip to Tulum we did not rent a car and were still able to get out and enjoy the beach and other activities. Walking, biking and taxis are good ways to get around. Liz and her staff can assist with guiding you on the options and help set up any tours with pick ups right at the hotel. Choose Posada Yum Kin – you won’t be sorry!

“Wonderful, relaxing place to stay”

Our family of four stayed at Posada Yum Kim for 9 days. I don’t think that we could have picked a better spot for for our stay. There was a glitch in our expedia reservation and Liz was quickly able to fix things and work out a an equitable solution (Dan you need to give her a raise, she was great). The rooms and grounds were very clean and tastefully decorated, all the staff were friendly and seemed to enjoy working there. The Breakfasts with fresh fruit, juices, pancakes and eggs were better than anything you could have bought in town. My wife and I both commented that the pictures on the website don’t do the place justice, it is really much nicer than the pictures. The location (a little hard to find) was away from the noise and bustle of downtown, we never had trouble sleeping. If you are that all inclusive type of vacationer this may not be the spot for you, but if you want to experience a nice Mexican posada you will not be disappointed with Posada Yum Kim. Tulum was a great centralized spot for a Yucatan vacation if you can’t find something to do you are not trying very hard.

“When in Tulum, stay at Posada Yum Kin”

We would not hesitate to recommend Posada Yum Kin as a romantic jungle getaway in Tulum. It is on the outskirts of town, but my wife and I liked walking through the quiet streets and using the available rental bikes.


“Even better second time ’round!”

After doing research last year for a place where we could stay and explore the Tulum area from, we spent 10 days at Posada Yum Kin and were SO glad that we decided to choose this little gem on the edge of town. We found it a perfect place to relax, cook our own meals (we LOVE to cook!), use as a home base while exploring beaches and cenotes, and wandering around Tulum town.

 We returned to this lovely hotel this February for another get-a-way … and are not disappointed in any way! It’s a lovely oasis, safe, very quiet, very clean, and provides a space to do yoga, meditate, cook or not cook (includes breakfast), sit in the sun, cool off in the pool, or go to the beach. The beach is about a 70 pesos ride in a taxi, and the grocery stores are easily accessible by walking or taxi. The beds are comfortable, and the pillows too …. the decor is beautifully done, private patios with soft lighting, seating and hammocks. Each room is unique, we booked the best one for cooking :)

The staff at at the Posada Yum Kin is very friendly, helping when ever there are questions asked about the area, assisting with travel plans or day trips, and even facilitated two amazing massages under the stars by Marta! Thank you so much for all your help Liz (the manager).

This hotel is off the beaten path, but the opportunity to experience the local flavor is amazing.
We will be returning next year for another stay … we ran into many guests who have returned year after year, and we will too!

“Outstanding, friendly, happy stay”

We brought the whole family including grandpa and a six year old for 2 weeks in Tulum. We stayed at Posada Yum Kin and here’s what we loved about it: – Small place that feels cozy and intimate.


“Amazing As Usual”

I am amazed at how clean everything is from the bedding to the floors. All the staff go out of their way to make us feel welcome. I feel safe enough here to bring my daughter and son in law and two granddaughters here to vacation. hola from Tulum
