Papaya Playa, Tulum: 91 reviews and 19 photos

Papaya Playa is the best overall cabana on the beach for your buck! The cabanas are as low as $30 and can go as high as $150 for the deluxe experience. Papaya offers the beach bum experience no matter what your price range is. The beach is immaculate and is never crowded, the bar and cafe is excellent and looks directly into the ocean. The cabanas are wrapped around the palm trees and blend seamlessly into the scenery. They are very clean and well maintained. The shared showering facilities are very clean and out in the open which makes for a exhilarating experience, nothing like showering under the stars! Papaya Playa is centrally located about10 minutes from the town and five minutes from the ruins. They offer bicycle and boat rentals and you can even arrange for a massage. There is electricity but they turn off the lights at about ten every night. Papaya Playa is the place to go if you want to experience the beach bum life on a beach bums budget!
