What to Eat in Tulum

Over the years, Tulum has cultivated an impressive parade of local and international chefs who have opened trendy, yet rustic restaurants that put the spotlight on some of the region's most celebrated ingredients, including huitlacoche (Mexican truffle) and cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork). These new eateries blend seamlessly with the casual dives locals love. Though traditional Mexican flavors are the focus of many of Tulum's menus, there are a variety of other cuisines represented here, including Italian at Posada Margherita and Casa Violeta, and Thai at Mezzanine. But if it's the traditional flavors of Mexico that your palette seeks, head to Safari (famous for its Airstream trailer turned kitchen), El Tábano or Antojitos La Chiapaneca (for its spit-roasted meat).

For more upscale meals, consider Kitchen Table, Gitano (well-known for its mezcal cocktails) and Hartwood (though you should be prepared for a wait at this extremely popular eatery).

True to Tulum's bohemian ethos, this beach town is also chock full of vegetarian- and vegan-friendly restaurants, including Arca, Ziggy's and Raw Love, which earns praise from guests for its collection of healthy smoothies and bowls.
