The beach. If not, there are always the hammocks. There are also cenotes for swimming or cave diving all over the area: Xel-ha, Dos Ojos, Grand Cenote, Caleta Tankah... A day or more for a run down to Punta Allen is worth the time. As is a guided tour of the Sian Ka'an reserve, a day to Coba, Tulum Ruins, etc

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2007
Why The Owner chose Tulum
What if you could wash ashore on a beautiful tropical island with a group of friends and you would build yourself a cosy little settlement of colourful decorated, wooden houses right there on the beach? What if a local Mama would prepare lunches and dinners with local ingredients fresh from the sea and the gardens, serving it in the little village square? What if you could create your own electricity and water supply and be completely self sufficient? Wouldn't that be a fairy tale come true? We thought so, so we bought a piece of beautiful beach land in Tulum (Mexico) and created our dream. It is the dream we want to share with you. Our own little magical island of authenticity: La Luna. La Luna is build like a tiny little village. Private, elegant, warm and friendly with a nice central gathering place where you can enjoy our local fresh dishes with our other guests.
Feel like Robinson Crusoe, Christopher Columbus or Captain Dale on a tropical shore with everything you need to feel the magic of life: fresh air, blue skies, turquoise water, fresh local dishes, friendly people and a lot of sun.
What makes this bungalow unique

Furthermore, La Luna is a perfect place for a small intimate yet very romantic wedding. We have a beautiful spot on our dune where the wedding ceremony can be performed.
