El Jardín de Frida is your home in Tulum, we’re an Eco-Cultural Poshtel, full of magic, culture and art built around a beautiful botanical garden.

We are located in Tulum’s residential area, on the main avenue, 5 minutes away from downtown and the bus station. We cater to guests looking for a quiet and comfortable place to relax, surrounded by a beautiful lush tropical garden.

The project is inspired not only in Frida Kahlo’s amazing life, but also in Mexico’s great culture, art and traditions, offering all that in your stay.

Our garden is programed to help you heal and release any energy you no longer wish to carry with you.

The first of its kind in Tulum town, we use solar panels to generate 80% of our electricity and we have a modern biodigester to treat our organic residues.

Our private rooms are thematic, representing aspects of the Mexican Culture and Folklore. Spacious, clean, fresh, all with private bathroom and jungle view balcony.

Our suites, named in honor of great Mexican culture icons, provide you with the comfort of having a separate bedroom, your own kitchen, a small living room and a spacious private terrace.

Our dorms are clean, spacious, with single beds (not bunks) and full bathrooms ensuite.

You will be surrounded by the beauty of nature... The singing of the birds in the morning will wake you up and the chirping of the crickets at night will accompany you in your dreams.

The facilities are designed to provide a pleasant and fresh stay every day of the year; nevertheless, we have ceiling fans in all rooms and air conditioning where specified.

In our beautiful botanical garden you will find different species of local trees and plants, like the sacred Mayan tree or the chicle (bubble gum) tree, amongst others. Here you can learn about our local flora and their uses. We also have a hammock site where you can lay down below bamboo trees, a great place to arrive and chill after a day of exploring the area.

In our bar, Cantina Tropical, you will find a wide selection of proprietary drinks based on Mexican culture icons and also Pulque, the drink of the gods, a pre-hispanic agave beer that is both delicious and healthy.

We are concerned not only in the quality of service but also in developing activities that benefit the planet.

We offer you a good price, an excellent service and an unforgettable stay full of magic, nature and Mexican culture.

Here you SLEEP, LEARN and HEAL.

Welcome HOME!

We are located on Tulum's main avenue, 4 blocks south from the center of town, in a quieter and calmer area.

You'll find us on the right side of the main avenue when going towards Chetumal (South) after the intersection with Kukulkan street, almost across the road from famous seafood place El Camello Jr.

Also, our neighborhood has other cool stuff, like:

El Camello Jr Ceviche House, were you can find fresh fish and ceviche, a very local spot for seafood run by fishermen.

Zine, a very original restaurant cinema where you can enjoy a movie of your choosing while having dinner in your own private screening room built in the middle of a lush jungle.

Green Beats, which is a permaculture center, were you can find different activities and buy organic goods.

Chac Mool and Meztli language schools were you can learn Spanish and Maya.

From Cancun Airport: Take either an ADO bus directly to Tulum or if not available one to Playa del Carmen and then one to Tulum Town.

From Playa del Carmen: Take an ADO bus or if you don’t have a lot of luggage a “colectivo” (shared shuttle), which departs about every 10 minutes. Their terminal is located approximately two blocks from the ADO terminal.

From Tulum’s ADO Bus Station: When you exit the ADO bus station head to your right (south), we are aprox. 10 min away walking, on the same side of the road. You can also take a cab from there, which should charge you around 25 pesos.

You'll find us on the right side of the main avenue when going towards Chetumal (South) after the intersection with Kukulkan street, almost across the road from famous seafood place El Camello Jr.
