Welcome to El Zapote, the little Caribbean oasis right in the heart of Tulum village.
Learn the true essence of rustic and conscious Caribbean living in your own palaba –the Mayan word for cabin– surrounded by El Zapote’s green and peaceful garden. The two cabins host 2 persons and are rented for very reasonable prices per day, week or month.
This clean, private and unique accommodation is only 4 blocks away from the ADO bus station and 2 blocks from the main street offering banks, all kinds of nice restaurants, bars, taxi bases and collectivo vans that will take you to Playa del Carmen. Tulum is very bike friendly and the 25-minute bike ride to the white sanded and coconut-covered Tulum beaches is highly recommended.
There is one more thing that will make your stay truly unforgettable: your enigmatic host, a Mexican lady nicknamed tha Sista that arrived at the Mexican- and Central American Caribbean waters 20 years ago. She will make sure you don’t run out of delicious incense and that the bananas in the garden are cut on time. See if you can resist knocking on her door when you smell her freshly baked Rasta muffins. Tha Sista brings all the good things of the Caribbean within a hand’s reach.
See you at El Zapote!
