Sharing some seriously dreamy Tulum Airbnbs! Located in the Quintana Roo state of Mexico, Tulum is a jewel of a place in the Riviera Maya and has everything you’d expect of this area: jungle treks, Mayan history, and beaches — it’s all here in this Central American oasis.
But when you’re in Mexico and you feel like swinging by Tulum, hotels are not where it’s at — like, at all. It’s all about the Airbnbs, and trust me; there are some unreal properties to choose from.
I’ve made a shortlist of my favorites to give you a good place to start. Check out my picks for the best Airbnbs in Tulum!
This perfect Tulum Airbnb is stunning with a gorgeous rooftop terrace. It's got an outdoor rain shower, there are a ton of tropical plants, sun loungers, a seating area, a hammock, an outdoor kitchen, and a private pool.
That's without even mentioning the design of this place, which features concrete, patterned tiles, and natural stone—all resulting in this dreamy place.
Combine this with tropical interiors and space enough to sleep six, and you've got yourself the perfect place for you and your besties. There's also a special perk of free bikes to use during your stay!
The terrace has gorgeous polished concrete and white bright walls that leads to a stunning rooftop pool. The seating arrangement out here is also pretty awesome with unforgettable views. Inside, the style continues—more polished concrete and sleek minimalist furniture to give this place a modern contemporary look.
It's also within easy walking distance of Downtown Tulum so you can explore what this magical place has to offer.
This Airbnb is designed with a chic and sleek design throughout. Imagine polished concrete, industrial touches, minimalist furnishings, spiral staircases, and cute little balconies. The rooftop infinity pool is the most stunning feature of this place with swings and see-through sides.
This stunning location is great, right in the heart of town. Without a doubt, one of the coolest Airbnb rentals Tulum has to offer.
This Airbnb is filled with boho vibes and has a gorgeous minimalist feel — there's so much space in this apartment that it brings a calming vibe.
There's a private rooftop with a pool, which is a super relaxing place to chill in (not to mention the other beautiful balconies here). Everything feels super clean and refreshing with air conditioning.
This cool apartment has its aesthetics on point. I'm loving the interior design here—think gleaming tiled floors, neutral tones, laid-back furnishings, plush dark wood highlights, and paneling. It's the perfect place to chill after a day of exploring Tulum and the surrounding area.
There's a communal rooftop area with a pool, but you'll also have your own private terrace to relax on with a drink or two in the evening. The price is super budget-friendly, too, making this one of the coolest and most affordable vacation rentals Tulum can offer.
Situated in Aldea Zama, not far from Tulum Beach on foot, this Airbnb has the best location.
The indoor-outdoor living feel of this place is super relaxing, with a spacious deck that comes with a dining table, a lounge area, and an outdoor kitchen. The paradise al fresco vibe is real.
