Please notify us if you have any issues. We strive to provide a relaxed place to stay and enjoy Tulum.
Tips & Rules
1. Campsite Rule: leave the place as good as you found it or better.
2. Respect the property and other guests.
3. Keep noise levels down after 10pm.
4. Please DO NOT flush toilet paper, personal hygiene products, etc. Use the waste basket provided instead.
5. Local guide books, regional interest books and tourist maps, etc. are available upon request. Feel free to use them, but please don't take them with you when you leave.
4. No smoking inside please. $100usd will be deducted from your security deposit if you are caught smoking or leave behind any evidence of having smoked indoors.
5. No pets.
6. If you finish it, replace it (condiments, spices, olive oil, etc).
7. If you turn it on, turn it off.
8. If the trash is full take it out and replace the liner bag.
9. Wash your dishes; wipe down counters; clean up any messes you make.
10. Knives should be used on cutting boards, then washed and dried after every use.
11. Teflon pots and pans: use only wooden or plastic utensils. Never use anything metal. When washing them, don't scrub them out; use only the soft part of the sponge.
12. Disinfect fruits and vegetables. Those with a smooth outer texture (apples, pears, tomatoes, etc.) can be disinfected in tap water. All others (lettuce, cabbage, etc.) use purified water. The disinfectant drops can be purchased at the grocery store. Use as directed on the bottle.
13. Don't leave fruit and vegetables in plastic bags. In this tropical climate they rot fast.
14. Tip properly:
Spare coins or more at taco stands.
12-15% minimum when eating out.
$5usd minimum for housekeeping staff; more if staying for over three nights.
$5usd for tour guides; it may be more depending on the tour.
You do not need to tip taxis unless hiring them for a tour, for the day or for the airport.
15. Don't leave the lockbox code in place, spin that sucker!
Lock the door behind you. Don't forget your keys!
16. Check out is before 12pm. There is sometimes flexibility on this but you need to ask and get the okay from us.
17. Have fun!
I was born in San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico and moved to Florida for high school and New York for college. My father is from Veracruz and my mother is a former army brat that grew up all over the US, so I am not just bilingual but totally bicultural.
I own and operate La Palmita Tulum Accommodations as part of a family of entrepreneurs overworking ourselves in paradise. I take care of most rental inquiries and am very hands on at La Palmita and my father's property Akiin Beach. As a Tulum resident since 2007 I can be a great resource for anything you might need during your stay. Just ask!
When I joined Airbnb in 2010 I was one of the first listings in Tulum. It has grown a lot since then both as a community and in the complexity of the platform. With so much practice I know my way around the site and am happy to work with you on more complicated bookings for multiple guests, locations, dates, etc.
When I'm not responding to Airbnb requests I train for an event called Travesia Sagrada Maya, run an ultimate frisbee pick up game, play poorly in a local soccer team, swim in cenotes and hang out with my wife and our dog.
