Cabanas Copal     Mexico

Cabañas Copal is nestled in a small clearing in the tropical forest on top of a natural terrace which overlooks the most private beach in Tulum.

Copal has a secluded feeling, quiet and tranquil, though it is located at the entrance of the hotel zone of Tulum. Its central location also places it at only 3 km. from the seaside Mayan ruins of Tulum, and within walking or bicycling distance from many of the area's crystal clear cenotes (natural freshwater pools that are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, or diving) Cabañas Copal is ideal for the traveler who enjoys a natural experience without sacrificing some of the comforts of home.

The beachfront side of the cabanas has a wide series of windows, allowing the sea breeze to enter and making the cabanas fresh and comfortable at any time of the year.

 

Seaview and partial seaview cabanas

Eco-Res Opinion ~ what is it really like?

Cabanas Copal has cozy cabanas which are close together. Most of the cabanas are seaview  or partial seaview and behind the sea view cabanas are the garden view cabanas which are surrounded by  the jungle and connected with sandy pathways. In the summer months the garden view cabanas can be quite warm.

The Cabanas are simple  and without electricity.

The grounds  are very beautiful and there is a small bluff which rises from the beach.

The sea view and the partial sea view are located overlooking the beach.

As the Cabanas do not have private patios or decks, there are hammocks, chairs and hanging beds located all over the property for you to relax and enjoy. There are also chairs and hanging beds on the beach.

Bar Tun Tun beach bar is open during the day for snacks and beverages. The Copal restaurant is located in the jungle is open from 7 am to 11pm.

The Maya Spa reception is located at Cabanas Copal, however, you can enjoy the Maya Spa services even if you are not staying at  Cabanas Copal.

Cabanas Copal is clothing optional on the beach  and about  50% of the people will be nude.  It is a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.

Keep in mind, Copal is surrounded by jungle and nature and you might have the opportunity to share the pathway with some  of the local friendly hermit crabs and iguanas.
