However we'll always be close by to help, advise and attend you, and to make sure all your needs and expectations are satisfied. For a small fee we can also help you with transportation and provide extra services like private tours, personalized meals, and more, allowing you to see a less touristy side of Tulum and the area. We'll also be happy to recommend you the best providers for scuba diving and snorkel tours, kite-surfing classes, yoga sessions. There is also a bar onsite, so if you fancy a few cocktails after a day of sightseeing or sunbathing, we'll be happy to open it especially for you! By staying at MELI-MELO P&B you can enjoy the best of both worlds Tulum has to offer. Its location is ideal: close enough to everything, far enough to feel like you're away from everything! Spider monkeys pay us a visit almost daily. You'll also get to see toucans and many other birds. Most people think Tulum is just about the beach. Here you'll discover another side of it: its magical jungle. MELI-MELO P&B is located on a bumpy road, 4 km away from town on the way to Coba. We recommend to use a rental car to make the most out of your stay in Tulum. You can also use rental bikes in the daytime to get to the beach and cenotes. However you will need to be back here before night time since the road is not lit.

Just three miles outside Tulum, this jungle hideaway is a delight. If you want to sleep in a beautiful netting-sided palapa, wake to a jungle chorus of chacalacas, woodpeckers and orioles, followed by a gourmet breakfast from French host Quentin, then Meli-Melo is for you....More
