Earlier this year we stayed a couple of weeks in Holbox Island. Absolutely loved it, love quintana roos, love the cuisine, love the climate.
So looking at our holiday for early next year Tulum comes up on the radar. Similar area, seems quite chilled but also gives us the option of visiting cenotes and ruins without the hassle of getting off a small island first.
We were looking at The Beach [hotel] ( http://www.thebeach-tulum.com/ ), and although we like the peace and quiet of not a lot around, a quick look on google maps really does appear to put this out in the middle of nowhere with nothing else around but similarly placed small hotels. Is this the case? We love exploring in the evenings on foot to go find somewhere weird and interesting to eat or some small beach shack to drinks and snacks.
Would be be a bit restricted in this location for our options? And does that also mean eating basically at similar small hotels which would mean paying hotel prices for food rather than the few dollars a meal we could pay on Holbox?
