If you want to get away from the hustle of the main street at Tulum beach, this place is perfect. It’s a two-minute walk from the entrance of Sian Ka’an, which was one of our favorite spots in Tulum. The best part about Manglex is that they integrate the ecosystem in the hotel, because it’s built above mangroves. Staying at Manglex means being in touch with nature. Each room is named after on of the elements air, wind, fire and earth. The cabanas reach above the trees, so from your balcony you have a view over the mangrove. The hotel values sustainability, they work with solar panels and are free of electricity-use during the day. Get in touch with your spiritual side, and set your intentions at the altar in the common area of the hotel. If you want to cool down after a hot afternoon, jump in the natural mangrove pool or take one of the kayaks for a sunset tour. Manglex is a place we definitely preferred for its conscious mindset and un pretentious vibe.
