Best sunset spots in Tulum
Tulum is a fantastic beach destination not only for its boho-chic atmosphere but also because of its majestic Mayan archaeological sites and natural wonders. According to the local government’s regulations, no building in Tulum can be taller than the tallest tree in the area – this helps preserve the environment, it does not over shade the jungle and keeps Tulum from being another exploited destination, preserving its small town vibe.
In Tulum, the sun rises in the ocean and it sets back in the jungle, so there are very few spots where you can watch a full sunset.
Here are a couple of places where you can enjoy the mystical sunsets of Tulum:
THE BEACH TULUM HOTEL: Each one of their Rooftop rooms feature a private roof top area with loungers, a sofa and a hot tub. From there you will be able to watch the sunrise on the beach side and the pink sunsets over the jungle.

KIN TOH: Is an haute cuisine restaurant, built on the rooftop of Azulik hotel, simulating oversized bird nests. It may be one of the most unique restaurants you will ever encounter. Unlimited creativity and the natural flow of its architectural design, along with their Mayan fusion menu result in a once in a lifetime experience. You will need to book and request a sun set seating. This is one of the most expensive restaurants in Tulum, but if you really want a fine dining experience nestled in the treetops with a beautiful sunset view, this is the place to go.

MATEO’S MEXICAN GRILL: This restaurant-bar has gained a lot of popularity. The food, drinks, live music, service and atmosphere have made it a favorite among tourists and has great internet reviews.
They have an incredible sunset spot: a two level platform located in the back of the restaurant with hammocks and tables. The sun will sink into the jungle while you sip your favorite Mexican drink.
