Mexico - Ana y Jose

Ana Y Jose - Mexico

$201 – Ever been to a place where it’s so special you don’t want to tell a soul? Tulum’s secluded Ana y Jose is just that kind of place. It’s a family-run hotel on a palm-lined beach with 21 handcrafted wooden bungalows, garden suites and those white louvered windows.

Mexico - Ana y JoseYou don’t have to, but most guests start the day with an invigorating session in the yoga “palapa”. Later, head on out to the ancient pyramids just four miles away.

When you get back, plan on spending the rest of the day on the crowd-free beach, or enjoy the native spa treatments which incorporate papaya and volcanic clay.

Mexico - Ana y JoseGrab a bite at the alfresco Mexican restaurant where dishes get spiced up with Yucatecan herbs. They pick them every morning from a nearby herbal garden.

If you have a heart for adventure, get your meal to go and hike to the ruins. Eat on the steps overlooking the Caribbean sea.

Mexico - Hotel Basico

Hotel Basico - Playa del Carmen

$158 – Playa del Carmen has a new lover. It’s Hotel Basico, the latest venture from the hip Micha brothers, who were behind the extremely popular Hotel Deseo.

15 rooms just a block from the beach is rougher, more of an industrial look when compared to the streamlined Deseo.

Mexico - Hotel BasicoNote that rooms are on the small side. What they lack in size, they make up for is Caribbean style: exposed support beams, walls of cement and local sand, and floors covered with – what’s that? Yes – recycled tires.

You will even find an innertube and flippers in your room. Use in good health.

At the Azotea bar, relish the local seafood ceviche or other local dishes. Whatever you decide - make sure to sit facing the ocean.
