Getting to Central Park Tulum

Central Park Tulum is located in the downtown district of Tulum. It is a new hotel and some cab drivers aren't familiar with the hotel. Make sure you have a screenshot (or map preloaded) with the cross streets.

If you are coming from the Cancun airport you can arrange a transfer before you arrive with Travel Yucatan. They will drop you right off at the hotel (or pick you up and take you back to the airport from the hotel).

Checking into Central Park Tulum

Check in was extremely easy, we actually had plans for the day and dropped our bags off in the early morning. Although our room wasn't ready, Central Park staff were more than happy to hold our things. If you are going to be early, I always suggest emailing the hotel ahead of time. 

The hotel property is quite large, especially for the downtown area. It is arranged in a circle with the solar powered flower in the middle, a large pool surrounding it, and multiple buildings with different units around the the pool. This hotel felt more like an Airbnb and a home away from home.

The Room at Central Park Tulum

The rooms at Central Park come in a variety of sizes. During my 4-night stay I was able to relax in a one bedroom apartment that included a full kitchen. I loved having the ability to take my leftovers from restaurants home with me and save some money on food. You could also easily stay here with a bigger group and cook meals. The condo also came with two bathrooms, one full one half, which was nice since the water and food might upset your stomach. There were many times we told each other not to go into the small bathroom for a bit - ha! 

The bed was extremely comfortable, as was the living room couches. I loved that the TV's come with Netflix and other apps preloaded. As long as you have a log in you can watch whatever you want.

WiFi at Central Park Tulum

Absolutely no complaints here! WiFi is so important to me since I am always working while on the road, I always scrutinize it! Central Park Tulum had Wifi that worked perfectly and was extremely fast. I was able to check email, add to my insta story, and even stream Netflix on their TV (and my phone). 

Onsite Extras at Central Park Tulum

Central Park comes with a long list of extras including bikes, beach access, and drinkable water in every room.

I really encourage you to stay at a hotel that has free bike rentals. It makes your stay so much easier because you can take them for a quick ride into town to get food, or for a whole day of exploring. Central Park also had it's own beach club. I did not visit during my short time in Tulum but they explained the process. You sign up for one of the two free shuttles. One leaves at 8:45 AM and the other at noon. Once there you have access to beach chairs, towels, and best of all a free private beach. There is only one return shuttle though - at 5 PM. If you wish to come back sooner you have to pay your own way. The beach is around 30-45 minutes (depending on traffic) from the hotel.

Dining at and around Central Park Tulum

 Breakfast at Central Park Tulum

Breakfast at Central Park Tulum

Breakfast does not come with the stay but the prices are extremely reasonable. Plus the food is delicious and filling! The restaurant serves all three meals, but the dinner menu is extremely limited. I am a pescatarian (who mostly tries to eat vegetarian) and they had no vegetarian meals and only a shrimp meal that I wasn't feeling the night I tried to eat there for dinner. 

The good news is that around Central Park there are tons of restaurants you can bike to. The downtown area has many places for any variety of meals - it shouldn't be hard to find something to eat. From Central park to the main downtown strip of food is only about a 5-10 minute bike ride.

Final Thoughts on Central Park in Tulum Mexico

This new hotel was such a great find I would stay here again for sure. Not everyone can afford a $300-400 a night beach hotel and this is the perfect option if you want to stay in something new and chic. Book your vacation with Central Park Tulum here.

One last thing... even though researching ahead of time is great, I definitely recommend bringing a guidebook along with you. Here are some books I recommend...

Also, a super common question I get is: What camera do I use for my travels. The body is a Nikon D3300 and I use the kit lens and a Sigma wide-angle lens which I am genuinely obsessed with.

My full list of travel gear, that I take on every trip can be found here.

And of course, if you have any questions DO NOT hesitate to reach out to me via Instagram, Twitter, or just shoot me an email (tessajuliette@gmail.com).
