My Pick of the 5 Best Yoga Retreats in Tulum, Mexico for 2022
Known for its spectacular Mayan ruins, amazingly clear aqua sea and beautiful sandy beach, Tulum has become one of the hippest places in Mexico. This small beach town only 90 minutes away from popular Cancun is a perfect place to relax, unwind, practice yoga and watch the sun rise over the Caribbean. It’s also become one of Mexico’s hippest yoga hot spots due to the boho vibes, instagrammable scenery, healthy restaurants and the many amazing yoga retreats in Tulum.
Covid Update: Mexico is one of the the few countries that have been open to tourists of all nationalities without testing or quarantines throughout the pandemic. Tourist attractions, beaches, restaurants and yoga centers in Mexico have reopened with extra hygiene and distancing measures against Coronavirus. Things can change quickly though so check the current news for the area you want to visit and don’t travel without insurance that covers Covid. Mine is with SafteyWing.
Tulum is increasing in popularity but still remains quite small and laid back but with plenty to keep you occupied off the mat. Swim in one of the best strips of sea in the country, go scuba diving, explore ancient Mayan ruins or explore the famous Cenotes of the Yucatán.
The best time to go on a yoga retreat in Tulum is during the dry, sunny months from December to April. Many people end up lingering alot longer than planned in Tulum and if you want to immerse yourself in your yoga practice in this magical landscape you could also do a yoga teacher training course in Tulum.
