Fodor’s Recommends Posada Yum Kin Hotel Tulum

We are happy to announce that Fodor’s has recommended Posada Yum Kin Hotel Tulum in a post entitled Cheap and Chic Beach Vacations. Although we’re not exactly on the beach, it still hits Fodor’s list.Pool From Above

Here are the excerpts from the article that mention PYK:

When it comes to getting away from it all, nothing soothes the soul quite like the beach and its ability to wash away worries along with the cresting waves. It’s hard to relax, however, when a breezy getaway becomes a budget buster. Lucky for you, there are these seven sun-drenched, sandy spots to hit that are high on value without sacrificing style. Plus, even as snow starts to fall at ski resorts, there are plenty of shoulder season deals to be found before the warm-weather high season kicks off in December. So go play in the waves without worrying about your wallet.

Tulum, Mexico

About an hour away from the sprawling mega-resorts of Playa del Carmen is Tulum, a low-key town where lodging, mostly boutique hotels and guest houses, is off the grid and prices are right in tune with the feel-good vibe of this yoga-loving community. Tulum is divided into three parts: its beachfront archaeological site, full of breathtaking Maya ruins; its bustling in-town area, or pueblo; and its Zona Hotelera, where beachfront cabanas, open-air restaurants, and a relaxed atmosphere—sunset yoga sessions are a common sight—beckon.

Where to Stay: Posada Yum Kin offers a sanctuary in Tulum’s pueblo area, with nine eco-friendly suites and plenty of privacy. It’s not on the beach, but a beautiful pool and hammocks on porches add a relaxed tropical feel. Budget-conscious travelers should consider a suite with a kitchenette to save on meals.staircase

Where to Eat: Tuck into fresh fish tacos and lobster flambéed with tequila at the beachside restaurant of the Ana y Jose Hotel & Suites, just steps from the powder-white sands and sparkling water of the Gulf of Mexico.

Insider Tip: For customized tours that mix visits to Maya ruins—2012 marks the end of the Maya long-term calendar, after all—with activities like swimming in cenotes, or sinkholes fed by refreshing groundwater, check out Catherwood Travels, led by Mundo Maya archeologists and experts.
