About the location

Tulum, Mexico is simply paradise. Just two hours south of Cancun, there's a reason it's become the "it" destination for celebrities, honeymooners, backpackers, and yogis alike. With all the chill vibes of Bali, Indonesia but way closer to the United States, Tulum's got it all: adventure, wild nights, spiritual mornings, and countless places to fill your stomach with way more than tacos (but believe me the tacos are amazing, too).

Okay, okay, I get it, it's great...but how do I travel there on a budget (or, not)?
