After staying in an excellent bed and breakfast in Tankah, my wife and I ventured into Tulum Pueblo itself for a taste of the real Mexico--and we loved it. Don't pay too much attention to the news out of Juarez and other border areas that Mexico has horrible crime. Yes, there are parts; just like any country. Posada Yum Kin...

As independent travelers we enjoy finding places located near establishments which locals enjoy and appreciate. Posada Yum Kin puts you in the residential part of town, away from the crowds and next to a patch of jungle that keeps things quiet and allows you to explore the town from another perspective. Our room had a kitchenette with a propane stove,...

We very much enjoyed our 6 night stay. The Inn is a little bit away from Tulum's main strip- walking to town is possible but not super convenient. We had a car anyways so no big deal. Our room was great - nice big king sized bed and so nice to have the little kitchen where we cooked breakfast. People...

Really enjoyed our stay. The place was very nice. The design and gardens were beautiful. It is a cab ride from Tulum town, but that also help keep the noise down and the $2 taxi ride to town wasn't a big deal. $4 taxi ride to the beach. Yum Kin is very clean and well run. If I had to...

My wife and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience at Posada Yum Kin. The rooms were large, nicely decorated and very well maintained. The water pressure in the shower was unbelievably stronger than our own shower at home! The staff went above and beyond any expectations my wife and I had. They directed us to...

If you are looking for a quiet oasis off the typical tourist path, then I can't recommend Posada Yum Kin highly enough. We chose PYK because it was half the price of the beach hotels, but it also has about 10 times the character of any other place I have seen. It spoiled us! Staying there is like living in...

We stayed at the hotel for a week while visiting Tulum and the surrounding area this past January and really enjoyed our stay at the posada. We rented two rooms, one was slightly smaller than the other and lacked a porch, both were spacious and clean with equipped kitchens, two large beds and sitting area. The hotel was lovely and...

Thank you Dan for working with us. It was a very pleasant stay and my Vietnamese in-laws loved it. The vegetation reminded them of their home country.

Posada Yum Kin is nice, out of the way place with great rooms and delicious breakfast. We were staying during busy Christmas holidays but the place was always quiet and peaceful. Most probably you will need a car or a bike to get to the Tulum’s main street and go further to the beach. The owners were very helpful and...
