I recently spent a month in the stunning city of Tulum, which is a lovely Mexican beach town. It’s a very famous destination for Instagrammers and luxury travelers alike, but there’s another side to it as well. Along the beach, that’s where the expensive hotels and villas are, which are incredibly beautiful, but will quickly put a frown on your bank account. You will most likely be spending big there, the prices are similar to those in Miami, or even higher. All the while, much more affordable, yet just as enjoyable experience is hiding in plain sight. You can find that in downtown Tulum, also known as El Centro. That area is not as close to the beach, maybe a 10-15 minute bike ride, but the difference in pricing is enormous.
One thing I fell in love with there were the bargain tacos, which were some of the best I’d ever had. That’s why today I want to tell you all about my favorite places where you can get some of Tulum’s best tacos. I’ve also included their locations right in Google Maps, so if you find yourself craving a tasty snack in Tulum, you can open this article and see which venue is closest to you. The first five you can find in El Centro, so you automatically know that they will be much more affordable. I’ve also ordered them on the basis of how much I enjoyed each one.
