Posada Luna del Sur has a great reputation, having topped the TripAdvisor rankings for Tulum hotels and cabanas for some time already.

It combines great service, spotless A/C rooms and a very attractive price of $60-$70 per night (double room).   If you are traveling budget, Posada Luna del Sur will let you use the kitchen and kitchenware to make your own food (there are many small supermarkets, convenience stores and grocery shops near the hotel).

Posada Luna del Sur is owned and operated by a friendly couple, Marty and Sarah, who provide a warm service to their guests.  They are a cool couple of Canadians (Montreal) who left their corporate lives to start up this “working in paradise” adventure as they refer to it.

Posada Luna del Sur is probable one of the best options to stay in Tulum town if you are not looking for a fancy place.  Just remember the pros and cons of staying in Tulum downtown:


  • You will have to take a 5 minute and $5 to get to the closest beach
  • Tulum downtown is evolving and getting better, but still the town can be described as “ugly”
  • The big PRO: restaurants, bars, supermarkets and all services at walking distance
