El Curandero, the best bar at the Tulum town

El curandero mejor bar de tulumDJ

Live music, with live bongoes, lots of percussion and hair, yes, this shit is available everywhere in Tulum, today’s world beach capital of bug-scratching-rasta-haired-never-working-people, and my second favorite beach in the world after Saint Tropez. But if you pair these bongoes with a live jazz trumpet (yeah, a hippie with real brass), in a background of DJ recorded acid-jazz music, with good drinks other than the usual downtown shitty beers and Baccardi, you got something. Specially if you can get a Chivas or a Buchanans for a hippie price of US$ 7,50.

El Curandero inherited something of the crowds from the traditional Pepenero, the traditional hippie joint of Tulum Ave, sadly gone sour after the inter-italian management change (or maybe before that, to the regret of the new capo, a nice italian buddie). Hippies, hip chickies, and even cool people coming from the expensive beach hotels go there. Especially on low season, this is the only place to have a drink with the Tulum crowd, even the Hartwood guys go there after they close (clients and employees, the latter the better).
