We understand if your first impression of Azulik Resort in Tulum is that it’s something out of Swiss Family Robinson, but this is so much more grown up. 

In fact, the Azulik Tulum eco-resort is adults-only and comes with a clothing-optional private beach, so you’ll want to know that going in.

Practical Tips to Consider Before Booking Your Tulum Eco-Resort

  • Choose a location that fits your lifestyle. Whether planning a week on the beach or admiring the tropical jungle forests, you’ll want to pick a Tulum eco-resort in a location you appreciate the most. 
  • Plan your travels ahead of time. If you’re going to see the natural beauty of the Yucatan, make travel arrangements before you arrive if you need to book a tour or drive to nearby archeological sites or cenotes
  • Pack what you think you’ll need. Because eco-resorts are sustainable, they often don’t have the same amenities as all-inclusive Tulum resorts. Be sure to pack anything you’ll want on hand for your vacation to enjoy your trip to the fullest. 
  • Do your part to preserve the nature around you. It takes all of us to create an eco-resort experience. Remember to respect the environment you’re staying in and take steps to make your stay sustainable and wellness-minded.
