Located about 2 hours south of Cancun, in the Riviera Maya, Tulum is truly a piece of paradise tucked away between the clear blue ocean and the emerald green tropical forests. We spent 6 days/5 nights at Amansala, with yoga classes, lounging on semi-private beaches, biking, kayaking, snorkeling and trips to the Mayan ruins. Shoes are optional at this beachside eco-chic hotel. Stone and wood rooms created a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Beginning and ending the day with a quiet stroll on the white sandy beaches, this yoga vacation exceeded expectations.
