The winter months in Europe can be depressing if you don’t like skiing and cold temperatures. In order to cheer up, there is nothing better than an escape to the sun. If you happen to be looking for a destination to get a bit of vitamin D, I just know the place! Tulum is one of the most beautiful places in Mexico. Ancient ruins and white sand beaches make it the ultimate destination for winter sunseekers.
What to do?
Let’s start with the most obvious one - relax on the dreamy beaches! With kilometres of white sand coastline, Tulum is a little piece of heaven on Earth. The water there is the bluest of the blues and the temperature almost never goes below 25°C. Swimming in the sea is like having a bath with the most incredible view. After taking a dip in the turquoise ocean, head to one of the many beach bars for a cocktail or two!
Visit the clifftop Ruins of Tulum. Originally a Mayan city established in 564, Tulum’s ruins are one of the most famous touristic sights in the region. It is a great way to learn more about the people and history of the place. Who knows, you may even be lucky and see some of the many exotic animals living around the ruins too!
Cycle along the Mexican coast. Cycling is one of the best ways to travel in Tulum. You can easily go from the beach to your hotel or a restaurant without having to worry about booking a taxi. There is nothing better than cycling in the sun, along the beach on your way to some delicious gluten-free tacos!
Finally, if you can, try to plan your trip so you can attend Sound Tulum. The festival’s lineup includes some of the most famous DJs and lasts 16 days. So, if you like electronic music and a good dance party in the jungle this will be right up your street. My favourite DJ is Tale Of Us, you should check them out, they are amazing!
Where to go?
My favourite restaurant in Tulum is Rosa Negra. The atmosphere is really fun and the food delicious! Their menu is inspired by the cuisine of Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico. They serve amazing steaks and an excellent variety of ceviche. Yum! Rosa Negra closes around 2am and the music is great, so after dinner, stick around for a digestive dance.
Mur Mur is the cutest restaurant! Take a seat at the bar on a swing and enjoy traditional seasonal Mexican food. All their ingredients are locally sourced and they have vegetarian and vegan options.
I highly recommend you stay at Nomade Tulum if you can. The rooms are very charming, they have all the facilities you could wish for and the beach is only a stone throw away. The breakfast is served in Berber tents which makes the whole experience even more fun. The Mexican eggs and chilaquiles are to die for. This place could make anyone a morning person!
So, if you are in desperate need of some sun this winter, consider planning a vacation to Tulum. Don’t forget to pack a few of our dresses, they are perfect to go out and dance even in the warmest climate!

I’ve decided to start organising wellness retreats with one of the most important people in my life; my mom.
I know what you’re going to say… isn’t launching a yoga retreat WHILE running a full-time fashion business going to be a lot of hard work?!
