We ran into Renata, a really kind girl, during a yoga session in La Veleta. That's how we found out Renata is renting cars and her business is really cool.
After seeing her bran new cars, we saw the super convenient prices she was applying and we decided to try her service out.

A trip to the beach is a must as a Tulum tourist. Why? It’s all because of the calm and tranquil Caribbean ocean, and the lively ambiance as many people are gathering and relaxing on the soft sands too!
If you prefer a lively vibe, visit the Playa Paraiso. One of the popular public beaches in Tulum because you will see people hanging out and there are some live performances at the beach that are super cool! We recommend going to Ikal and renting their floating beds for the whole day!
If you prefer something more private and quiet. You can visit any beach restaurants across the hotel zone, as they are far away from the crowd. But, the catch is that you need to spend more. We recommend Ziggy Beach Club and Mi Amore.
