Dotted along the beach of the Caribbean coast and nestled in the jungle, the Papaya Playa Project is truly a paradise. We’re swooning over this barefoot luxury camp, overlooking azure waters, where Mayan mysticism, verdant flora, and creative vibes, to truly reinvigorate the senses. Learn more about why Papaya Playa is one of our favorites, by exploring below.
On a pristine stretch of the Caribbean in Tulum lies Papaya Playa Project, an idyllic playground for the creative community. Here, eighty-nine rustic casas, casitas, and treehouses dot the beach. Choose from a palapa-roof traditional hut, or a cool, concrete casita with its own plunge pool. You'll wake to the gentle chatter of Green Jays and the lapping of waves, scents of palm and sea-breeze.
House-made ceviches and margaritas put the essence of Tulum on your tongue, with local ingredients from Papaya’s own garden and apiary. Enjoy with some low-volume electronica at the lounge bar. The tempo rises with the evening fire-pit funk-outs, where both embers and beautiful people dance in the night air. This Tulum awaits you when it's time to travel again.
Tulum abounds with experiences to anchor in your memory for a lifetime. Perfect beaches, jungle ruins, hidden swim holes, hip boutiques, cozy mezcalerias….numerous are the allures of Tulum. If you have just a few days here, you might find yourself choosing between relaxation and vigorous exploration. First thing on the agenda is to drink in the relaxing blue ocean view -- but then, turn and face inwards, to the deep green heart of Tulum’s true magic. You’ll soon learn why this place is one of Mexico’s most mindful and magical destinations. And after one tangerine Tulum sunset, we’re sure you’ll be back for more.
