"Not much of a retreat"

Scuba course was great- got my certification and enjoyed the cenote, very beautiful.

The people in general were very friendly and likeable.

"Tribal Tulum "

Tribal Tulum was wonderful! Such great yoga instruction and diversity of classes :) The cenotes and diving were spectacular! Would highly recommend it for anyone looking to get away, relax and have a little adventure!

"a balm for the soul"

The combo of yoga and diving is perfect

The diving instructors, Estoban and Alex were fabulous. It was my 1st time diving after the PADI certification 18 months prior. They were patient, confidence inspiring and very experienced.

My apartment was very spacious and I very much enjoyed lounging in the hammock on the balcony

"Even better than expected!"

You can't go wrong with the studio and the yoga classes here. It is welcoming, challenging, relaxing, and peaceful. The owner Joanne is great human and a lovely host. I highly recommend the stay for the money.

"Perfect relaxing yoga retreat"

Tribal Tulum provided everything that could be needed for a truly relaxing and restorative yoga retreat. The lofts and yoga studio are in the same building, located in a great spot between the downtown area of Tulum and the beach. As a guest, you are given a bike to use, which is a very common mode of transportation in Tulum, and which gets you easily to the gorgeous beaches and great restaurants. The lofts are beautiful and seemed designed to provide wonderful vibes, and there's even a large grocery store nearby if you want to cook for yourself. We had the option to attend 3 to 4 yoga classes a day, and every one we went to was great. The instructors know what they are doing and how to facilitate a practice for all levels and body types. Everyone at Tribal Tulum is so kind and friendly, and Joanne really wants to make sure that everyone gets as much as possible out of their time there. She gave great suggestions and provided opportunities for things like a sunrise meditation, which was the perfect way to start the day. The yoga studio is also partnered with a dive center which provides guided tours for things like snorkeling in cenotes and learning to scuba dive. I could go on about how great my experience was, but I'll end by saying how truly cared for I felt and how restored this retreat made me feel. Before this, I had never gone on a yoga retreat, and Joanne and her team exceeded my expectations.

"Tribal Tulum is fantastic!"

Joanne made me welcome the moment I arrived and checked in regularly to make sure all was well. Great mix of class types and instructors. Love the space, the town of Tulum and the amazing beaches. And the cenotes provided for spectacular diving, it was breathtaking. I will be back, thank you!!

"Tribal Tulum Paradise"

There aren't enough words that could positively describe my experience at Tribal Tulum. Joanne was communicative and consistent throughout the entire booking process. Upon arrival to Mexico, transportation was arranged from Cancun to Tulum, and even though it was late, Joanne was waiting for us at check-in to welcome us to her facility and give us a tour. Our accommodations were divine, and there were so many thoughtful and personal touches that made our stay absolutely wonderful. Fresh granola, almond milk, fruit, coffee, tea, filtered water, and coconut milk were provided daily during our stay. We were provided locally produced, environmentally sustainable products which I fell in love with. We had unlimited use of the yoga studio, bikes, and discounts on adventures through Aquatic Tulum. The location is PERFECT! It's a 10 minute walk to downtown Tulum, which has some phenomenal shopping and restaurants, and a 20 minute bike ride along a well paved path to white sand beaches and resorts/bars/restaurants/shops. The staff and yoga instructors were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. There were multiple class options daily varying in style, length, and difficulty. The yoga studio was absolutely gorgeous, with amazing light and a comforting atmosphere. Not only will I recommend Tribal Tulum to every person I know, I am already looking forward to my next visit!

"Diving and Yoga "

I was not expecting both the Yoga and the Diving to be so good. I thought that there would be compromises to accommodate the two activities. not so both were handled very professionally. Great time.

"Amazing Experience"

I arrived in Tulum a little bit lost, but immediately felt very grounded at the Tribal Tulum / Acuatic Lofts space. Everyone there was so helpful and positive and the whole experience was excellent. I was not entirely sure what had brought me to Mexico, but the free form and availability of different aspects of this retreat allowed me to explore freediving with a fabulous instructor Esteban.

I also deeply enjoyed all of the yoga sessions I attended, particularly the restorative evening session with Joanne... I will admit to falling asleep during a pose. I ended up getting level 1 certified in freediving which was such an amazing experience, the cenotes we explored and also the easily accessible surrounding sinkholes are truly amazing and must be explored.

The accommodations were outstanding and I was overwhelmed by the feeling of home and personal touches, as well as comfort, that I experienced here! I cannot recommend this studio more highly... I hope to return again soon!

"A magical experience "

I decided to take a last minute yoga retreat because I had fallen out of my own yoga practice and figured the retreat would help reset me. This was better than expected. Everything was amazing. The lofts are super cute !! The studio is really nice, and Tulum is magical! The owner Joanne is amazing and the instructors were awesome! I am already planning my next trip down there again. Hands down one of the best retreats you will find out there!!

"I loved it...I will definitely be back!"

Joanne is the most hospitable and knowledgeable host and owner of this business and the trip was really made great by her and her care for her guests and clients. The loft and studio are beautifully kept, she made sure I had what I needed to make my stay enjoyable. I also loved the variety of classes that are offered and each of the instructors were individually challenging, skill level and technique-wise, from whom I learned a lot and have a new appreciation and respect for yoga. Added bonus is the ease of booking excursions with Joanne and her team who are knowledgeable with recommendations based on what you want to do. Tribal Tulum is fantastic and I cannot wait to return!

"Much needed yoga and balance"

Joanne and Alex were both amazing hosts. I enjoyed the special attention and the fabulous yoga. 5 days was way to short, I will definitely be back to see my new Tulum friends! Hasta pronto!

"Can't Wait to Return"

Tribal Yoga Tulum is a magical place. I felt at home with Joanne and her staff; including her dogs Astro and Eh, Tu. I arrived with a warm welcome and my apartment had all the comforts of home. It was clean, cozy and safe and there was fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, and coffee waiting for me. My private balcony with my own private hammock allowed me to nap by candlelight. I stayed in loft #2.

I walked up one flight of stairs to practice yoga and the teachers were very knowledgable and attentive. The studio was calm and warm with an amazing cross breeze that was perfect for the experience. All mats and props were provided and in great shape.

The location was close to the beach (20-minute bike ride - the bike is free) and grocery store.

The private rooftop was great for having morning coffee and meditating.

This is my Tulum home away from home and I will be back.

"Amazing space and Amazing People"

Such a well done space! Joanne and Alix and all of the crew were just wonderful people. Very informative whether it was in yoga classes or in the diving lessons. I loved the well designed space of the studio apartment, the delicious food left for breakfast. Such a kind staff at Tribal. Joanne and Barbara made sure I had a vegan lunch, Joanne even road me into town to show me where the restaurant was. She also was kind enough to answer her . phone when I . arrived to provide transpo help. I am not a yogi, but loved the flexibility in levels and the variety of instructors. The dive sites were the best places to get scuba certified (barely even snorkeled) and was happy to have the capability and great/positive/well informed crew of dive instructors. Would def return just to stay here:)

Loved the unlimited yoga classes, access to a bike, the location of the center, the beautiful & comfortable loft, and most of all the kindness of the people that run the place :)

"Great Experience"

The activities were awesome, the rooms big and comfortable, the food was tasty, the instructors were friendly and knowledgeable, the location was located perfectly in between the town and beach, and a bicycle and water bottle were thrown in for free.

Thank you Joanne, great experience!

"Tribal Yoga "

I stayed at Tribal Yoga for 8 days, it was a fantastic experience. The loft accommodation was stunning - fully self contained apartment so I could cook and have my own living space. The yoga sessions were top notch. All the instructors added their own style to the classes keeping it interesting and diversifying what was offered. Joanne the owner was particularly personable and welcoming, ensuring she introduced herself when I first arrived and that my stay throughout was going well. On arrival there was also a welcome basket of fresh fruit, vegetables and coconut. Loved it! Definitely hope to return in the near future.

"Beautiful Room..unique experience...lovely people."

I loved the room first and foremost. It was decorated beautifully and felt really luxurious. Lovely little balcony and stunning yoga studio next door. I absolutely loved the meditation on arrival which was on the roof top, what a way to arrive. I had a fantastic Yin class with Joanne which was my favourite class of the trip. We had the opportunity to have a Mayan Cleanse with a local Shaman. It was such an unexpected joy and one of the highlights of our trip. We went to a Temazcal later that week which Joanne helped organise. Just amazing! Esteban's theory, knowledge and passion for Freediving is phenomenal and I loved the Cenote's and especially the last day when we dived underneath Mangrove trees with a crocodile called Panchito not far away. A really unique and educational experience.

"Lovely Stay in Tulum "

I decided to come on this retreat as a gift to myself for finishing school and it was a great experience. The lofts were all beautiful, and the instructors for yoga were always fantastic with correcting posture and remaining true to the practice. The free dive portion of the retreat was also very nice in the cenotes. The instructor Esteban was incredibly understanding and very good with feedback. Thank you Tulum Yoga for a wonderful trip!

"Great, Quiet, Peaceful, Loving."

I enjoyed staying at Joanne’s place. Everyone is so nice and amazing! I had an amazing time!

They have a great studio with great teachers!

Alex, Orlando, Leaf from thank you so much for your time and scuba diving! You are amazing!

"I loved this"

The yoga teachers are all were great and unique. None of the classes felt like the same old yoga. The studio is well decorated, with high quality mats and props available, and beautiful feng shui energy. The rooms are great, too. Very modern, but a bit tropical and zen. The highlight, though, was the free diving. I had no idea how much I would love this sport, and I certainly had no idea I would be capable of such long and deep dives in only a few days. Esteban is the best instructor I’ve had for this sort of thing (better than scuba, skydiving, etc.). He knows the class material, and can see the little things you can correct. He gives simple, easy to follow advice that he catered to each of the three in the class, all of whom developed differently. He combines seriousness with go-with-the-flow vibe, which are the two things you need when free-diving.

I had a really amazing time with the Tribal team and would highly recommend it. Some of the highlights included:

* Great location (close to town, close to the beach)

* All the little details were taken care of (fresh fruit upon arrival, free access to bikes, very friendly / helpful staff, etc.)

* A wide range of yoga classes with really great teachers

Cant go wrong!

"Great yoga, diving and accommodation"

A lot of thought has been put into tribal yoga tulum and it shows. Each of the yoga instructors brings with them there own unique styles and energy. Amazing freediving experience, which was adapted dependent on bass levels. And great rooms/accommodation.

"Amazing solo retreat"

This was a perfect last-minute solo getaway and first trip to Tulum. I booked 4 nights at the Acuatic Lofts and have nothing but amazing things to say about Joanne (the owner of the studio & lofts) who was so gracious and welcoming. She even drove one of my fellow yoga classmates & her husband to a local honey shop in the town over (the same shop that provides the shampoo & body soap in the lofts), and then we had an impromptu dip in one of the local, smaller cenotes.

The location of the lofts is also really convenient, as it's the middle point btwn the town & the beach (short 15 min bike ride - and the rental is included). The yoga classes in the studio were just a short flight up, and the dive shop downstairs was great too (you get a discount when staying in the lofts & I recommend the snorkeling trip to Dos Ojos Cenote).

All in all, I highly recommend booking a retreat here & I hope I can come back again!

"the blessings of Tulum"

My visit to Tulum was a very sweet and rich experience. I felt very welcomed, safe and held by the folks at Tribal Tulum. The facilities are beautiful. The People are so warm and heart felt. The yoga instruction was beautifully paired with the Free Diving instruction. The blending of the two experiences, with their common thread of the breath, was brilliant. Joanne and Esteban both brought so many little touches of care and wisdom to their instruction and guidance. I feel very blessed to have meet them. It was a moment of a life time.

"Tribal yoga, Tulum une place à visiter! "

C’est une première expérience au Tribal Yoga Tulum, et ce ne sera probablement pas la dernière. Si j’avais à noter mon appréciation, ce serait 15 sur 10 ! C’est l’un des voyages les plus mémorables que j’ai fait. Tulum est une destination mystique, où l’énergie spirituelle des mayas se fait sentir. Pour vivre une retraite de yoga tout en s’imprégnant du quotidien mexicain, Tribal est une destination parfaite.

Situé sur une avenue bordée d’une piste cyclable, le Tribal est à 15 minutes à vélo de la plage (les vélos sont fournis) et 5 minutes du centre actif de Tulum (épiceries, restaurants, boutiques, banques, etc.). Nous habitions le Loft 1, une immense pièce située sous la salle de yoga, dans un aménagement simple, confortable et bien pensé. Nous n’avons manqué de rien durant notre séjour : café, eau de coco fraîche, eau potable, miel artisanal, shampoo et savon de corps, serviettes, robe de chambre. Le ménage est fait quotidiennement.

Les classes de yoga (trois par jours, sauf le dimanche) sont variées et dirigées par des professeurs compétents et attentionnés qui adaptent leur enseignement aux capacités des personnes présentes en salle. Il y a parfois une activité spéciale, comme cette méditation de 45 minutes que nous avons vécu au son d’un concert de bols de cristal « live »: c’était unique !! J’ai été touchée par l’énergie qui règne dans ce centre, le personnel semble former une petite famille.

L’hôtesse Joanne est mon coup de cœur de ce voyage !

"Lovely yoga gateway in Tulum"

I really enjoyed my 5 days at Yoga Tribal: the diversity of classes, the peacefulness of the place and above all the warm heart of the instructors and the people who work there.

"Great classes and wonderful place"

The classes were all different and all the teachers were amazingly friendly and helpful. The room was very specious and has everything you could wish for. The bike you get is very handy as it is quit a ride to the beach, but definitely doable.

I would really recommend this to anyone who would like to have a great balance in doing yoga and exploring Tulum.
