What's So Special About Mahayana Tulum?

Dreaming of a beachfront destination wedding on the shores of Tulum? This location is simply put, a whole vibe. On the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, this stunning natural beauty, Mahayana Tulum, sits poised on a private white sand beach surrounded by jungle and lush tropical greenery – creating an ideal backdrop for an intimate destination wedding, elopement or micro wedding or even a slightly larger celebration for up to 60 guests. ​

Mahayana is located in the heart of the boutique hotel area of Tulum, of all the beachfront properties Mahayana is a beautiful spot to say I do. Surrounded by incredible restaurants, artisan shops and yoga studios just steps away. Your guests can explore the vibrant, free spirited culture of the area just out the gates of Mahayana.

Mahayana offers a private beachfront, 2 swimming pools and a rather cool onsite taco bar. Stay with your closest friends and family and enjoy exclusive use of the whole property, which includes the 3 bedroom Casa Bonita, the 4 bedroom Casa de las Palmas, a 3 bedroom Casa Mandala, and the Casa Gaia & Eclectic Treehouse.

Mahayana can accommodate 24 – 27 guests staying on site in total and is suitable for events between 20 – 60 people.

Full buyout of the venue is required, with a 4 night min stay.

The nearest airport is Cancun (CUN) Airport, just a 1 and a half hour transfer away for you and your guests.

Language Spoken

Mostly Spanish. But you’ll get by with English.


Make sure you’re up to date with Tetanus, Typhoid
and Hepatitis A. If your honeymoon is likely to include trekking, Rabies, Meningococcal Meningitis and Hepatitis Bare recommended and some areas may require you to take anti-malarials.


Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey all have a metro system and most towns and cities have cheap bus systems. Taxis are convenient – just make sure it’s an official taxi and that the meter is on. Self-driving in Mexico can be hair-raising and unlikely to help with any pre-wedding jitters.

Public Holidays

Mexico celebrates Christmas and Easter, as well as Cinco de Mayo in some locations (5th May), Constitution Day (5th February), Independence Day (16th September), Revolution Day (third Monday in November) and Labour Day (1st May), among others.

Good Time to Go

The best time to visit Mexico is during the dry season between December and April, when there is practically no rain at all. The coolest months are between December & February.

good to know

A typical Mexican wedding reception is usually one of the best parties you’ll ever attend. From the never-ending dancing to lively mariachi music, and the incredible food and desserts, it’s a celebration that goes on well into the night.

What Couples Say

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We rented out the entire Mahayana property for our wedding in Tulum and we had THE BEST TIME! The property is absolutely amazing and everything we had hoped for. The houses are all so nice and clean and freshly renovated. Having the private property was perfect for our trip and wedding. The two pools were so nice to have, all of the water sports equipment and so much outdoor and beach space. All of the staff was so friendly and hard working. We spent time with Guy the owner when he was on the property and he’s such a great person. The two property hosts Chabely & Alma were always available and so accommodating with any needs that we had. We felt safe and at home during our stay and would highly recommend Mahayana to anyone and everyone planning a trip to Tulum!!”
