Tulum is one of Mexico’s hottest destinations. And not only for the beautiful beaches, the charming town and the magic cenotes you will visit, but also for the incredibly appealing places to shop! We bet you will not be able to resist Tulum’s style clothing and you will fall in love with the shops mentioned in our guide below. If you are not sure about what to pack for your trip to Tulum, don’t worry: I always advise friends to bring less dresses and clothing than they would. Why? Because in Tulum you will want to buy so many things you will certainly need some extra space in your bag. But let’s skip on and discover the essentials to pack for your vacation in Mexico and our favorite clothing shops in Tulum!

Tulum weather and the famous Tulum vibe

Guess what? Weather in Tulum is hot, hot, hot! Remember while you’re packing, that linen and simple clothing will save your life out there. Since the sun is always beating, another must have is sunscreen protection: remember to apply it always before leaving your hotel, even if you are wearing one of those beautiful boho hat! Talking about hat, you probably noticed that if you search for Tulum on Instagram or you saw a few photos of your friends there, a real Tulum vibe exists when we talk about outfits. Boho vibes, fancy cowboy hat, long linen dress, handmade leather shoes, woven bag: all these items will be a great base for any outfits during your travel to Tulum. Are you curious about our list of essentials to pack (or shop in Tulum) for your trip? Keep on reading!

The essentials to pack for your vacation in Tulum: our list

Dresses, dresses and dresses

A long and a short dress are always a must have. Comfortable to go to the beach or to walk in town, they will keep you fresh and you will always be elegant and chic. So while packing, bring at least 2 dresses. Why only 2? Because in Tulum you will fall in love with so many handmade and conscious dresses, you will want to buy a thousand of them!

A bag for the day and one for the night

I personally love having a woven bag that fits everything! Plus, it’s definitely a Tulum’s style must have. Comfortable and big enough to be an inseparable travel mate, from the beach to the ruins and even to the cenotes, you will be happy to have it with you. But what about the night, when you will wear an elegant long dress? I recommend you to bring an extra small bag to complete your party’s outfit in a quick time.

A hat to upgrade any outfits

This is most probably the only thing I really recommend you to buy in Tulum. Here you will find so many places to shop great hats (which are usually handmade). No matter if you are female or male, you will love to spice up your outfit by adding a simple boho hat. 

A versatile top

A linen top, a crop top, or everything that keeps you protected from the sun and fresh at the same time is really a great deal for a trip to Tulum. 

Comfortable shoes

We love the typical shoes from Mexico called “huaraches“. You will find many places in Tulum to shop for them, and thinking they are all handmade, with great leather and beautiful colors, will make you fall in love with them. Find below our favorite shoe shop! 

Linen shorts all day every day

Linen will save your life in Mexico! A linen dress, top or shorts are definitely something you should pack before you travel. If you want to buy linen at a more affordable price, considering buying it in Tulum is a great idea since it’s often on sale.
