"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!

"Home away from home!"

Upon arrival, I was greeted by Joanne with a fresh cup of delicious coffee. She made me feel at home right away!

Accommodations: The room was beautiful and stocked up with fresh fruit and water. The room was also cleaned regularly. Joanne also provides a bike for your stay which quickly becomes your best friend.

They also have some of the best scuba and free diving instructors which I wish I had tried if I was staying longer.

Yoga: I tried to attend at least 1 yoga class a day and found there is much variety and something for everyone. You can attend even if you’re a beginner. I liked the incorporation of essential oils and more breathing techniques than I’m used to.

The staff: Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I found Leif provided me with the most information and was very cheerful. They had a new member named Malin who is helping out for a little while. She was willing to travel along with me to some bars and cenote when she wasn’t working.

Location: The retreat is in a convenient location. It doesn’t take too long to bike to the beach or even some cenote. I biked to 2 nearby cenote during my visit which were beautiful. There are also some delicious restaurants and bars within walking distance.

Tulum: Tulum itself is gorgeous, safe and I’d definitely revisit. This loft fits the Tulum vibe of positivity and slow living perfectly!

Thank you all for making my first solo vacation wonderful 😊

"Lugar genial en Tulum para practicar yoga"

"A perfectly restorative retreat; just heaven "

The apartments are just lovely, lots of light, lovely calm colours, sumptuous bed linen and divine cosmetics made by local bee keepers.

There are yoga classes for all preferences from hard core Ayenga to gentle Yin and all that flows in between. The teachers are excellent and accommodate novices just as well as experienced practitioners.

The location is perfect, on the edge of a gentle and authentic Mexican town with lots of restaurants serving local and vegetarian cuisine. The studio is also quite near to the big supermarket which has a wonderful range of everything you might want for self catering, including gf produce. We arrived to find a lovely bowl of fruit and chilled coconuts as well as excellent tea and coffee.

There is so much to do locally beyond yoga. We went snorkelling in two different cenotes with a lovely guide and went on a fabulous trip into the ecosphere near by. The archaeology is also fascinating.

The studio is located on the cycle path which is just a 15 minute flat cycle to the beach and the more fancy bars, restaurants and shops. Personally I preferred not staying in the main tourist zone but having easy access to those facilities from time to time.

There is quite enough for people who are not into yoga to do and who knows they may even get into some gentle relaxation in a hammoc if not in the yoga studio.

Above all the staff are so lovely. Joanne could not have been more kind and helpful. Thank you. Xxx

"Counting the days until I can return! Excellent retreat!"

I loved the location, the yoga classes, the diving, the accommodation, but most of all the people who make Tribal Tulum and acuatic Tulum. Joanne is an absolute gem and you can tell she is dedicated to giving everyone the best experience and practice they can have. Leif who took me out for diving was so friendly and I felt incredibly relaxed and comfortable and have now been bitten by the diving bug! I took at least one yoga class per day and they were all different, all instructors had different ways of teaching but all nurturing and I was very impressed. I made lots of friends and had the perfect balance of improving my yoga practice and fitness level while also getting to experience the beauty of this region of Mexico and meet new people. The location is great, within walking distance of the city centre and the cycle path makes it all so easy to get to the beach as well. I am a vegetarian as well and ate like a Mayan queen ha ha! The food was incredible! I also have to say, I am thrilled I never had to buy a single plastic water bottle as there was an endless supply of drinking water in each room. I will be going back for sure and bringing friends as this retreat is absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for such an unforgettable adventure! Love, peace and Namaste

"Incredibly healing trip!"

Joanne (owner and instructor) is an angel! She makes you feel at home, helps you with recommendations of things to do around the area. I came to Tulum to heal. And this place helped me more than I could imagine. The location is perfect, you can walk to restaurants and downtown if you'd like. The beach is also very accessible by bike (which is provided). I am so excited to go back :)

"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.

"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!


from United States, January 2019

"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.

Lukas Iraola

from United States, December 2018

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.

"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.

"A treasure box in paradise.."

I loved my experience with TribalYoga.. The classes were all different and unique, yet complimented each other beautifully. I felt challenged and motivated by all the teachers and learnt so much in such a short amount of time.


from Canada, September 2018

The location was very good, very small yoga classes, relaxed atmosphere, Acuatic Tulum staff helpful when they're available, room was clean and everything in working order.

"A wonderful yoga community"

Tribal Yoga is an amazing place to get away from the chaos of everyday life and immerse yourself in Yoga and Tulum. You will be challenged but you will also have a lot of fun along the way. The teachers are world class and the class sizes are small and intimate. Joanne goes above and beyond to ensure that your time there is exceptional. I highly recommend this retreat to all yogis of any level and style.

"Apartment, yoga studio and roof terrace were fabulous. "

So much to do around Tulum. Cenotes, biosphere, restaurants and ruins. All the yoga classes at Tribal are wonderful.

Kate Lebedeva

from United States, June 2018

Rooms are huge and light, comfortable and clean. The location is perfect, about 10 min from the beach by bike.

Yoga studio was right next to my room (Loft 4) super easy to just wake up and get there, people are coming from different hotels for the classes and have to ride back. Yoga teachers are amazing, tried some new for me practices during staying and was surprised how flexible you can be just by following the correct steps. Did diving in a cenotes for the first time ever, it was great. Would highly recommend this place!

Jackie Simmons

"Wonderful place for a personal yoga retreat"

The loft was great - very spacious, bright and clean. There was a kitchen stocked with coffee and basics like salt, pepper, olive oil, etc., a large bed (note: with a very soft mattress), a pull out sofa, a patio with a hammock, a nice bathroom with a heavenly locally made Mayan honey shampoo and body wash.

I really enjoyed the beautiful yoga studio and went to every class offered during my stay, which meant morning vinyasa or flow class, sometimes followed by an iyengar class and then an evening restorative or iyengar class. It was nice to practice many different styles of yoga, and all the classes were taught by knowledgeable teachers who made an effort to create a warm community. The studio has everything you need and the props are plentiful and in good condition.

A bicycle rental is included and it was easy to bike 15 minutes to the public beach or rent a beach chair at a nearby hotel. The bike ride back for evening class was always shady and a good way to warm up for restorative poses. 

This was an ideal way to have a solo vacation because it was easy to do my own thing, as well as meet other travelers. Also, Joanne, the owner, is a gem of a human being. Every single interaction with her added a brightness to the day. You can tell she is thoughtful about every detail and attentive to any concern. I highly recommend Tribal Yoga and hope to return to again.

"Excellent teachers, beautiful apartment"

The yoga retreat was amazing. The teachers are really well trained and know how to adapt postures to your possibilities (definitely not what I sometimes call the "lululemon yoga babe teacher type"). The apartment was beautiful, super comfy bed, and had a kitchen. We cooked most of the time ourselves, there's a supermarket across the street so we could get plenty of fruit and veggies. There are tons of restaurants in case you don't want to cook.

"Release Restore and Rejuvenate "

For self celebration of right foot hardware removal, and cessation of chronic pain following 3 surgeries in 2 years, I traveled alone to Tribal Tulum. I felt safe and well cared for! I attended 12 yoga classes in 6 days--5 different, fabulous instructors helped create a peaceful and nourishing practice. My last class ended with Flavio playing amazing beautiful music from his flute, a stunning magical ending. I also did 7 dives in 6 days, 6 in the amazing Cenote caves and 1 beautiful reef dive. I tried free-diving one day and quickly learned that I wanted my tank back, I am thankful for the experience. The dive guides and all the staff who cared for me were well-trained and highly qualified. I had my own bike for the week and could venture out as much as I wanted. My transportation was well-planned and seemless. I will be returning!

"Worth a second trip!"

I stayed at Tribal Tulum last year for 7 days and liked it so much I went back again this year. It has many wonderful teachers, each with their own style. Classes are fresh and fun, and never boring. You are able to pick the classes that suit you, and challenge yourself at the same time. The schedule leaves you the freedom to explore the town and enjoy the beach. I especially enjoyed being able to bike to wherever I wanted to go.

The accommodations are very comfortable, with all the conveniences you could ask for!

"a beautiful and chill vacation"

I really enjoyed the staff at Acuatic Tulum, they were very helpful and friendly. There were different yoga classes and instructors each day, the variety was very welcome. The location is on a main street between the beach and town so it made it easy to get to both. It is close to a vegetarian restaurant called Co.con Amor that was an easy and delicious spot to get to. I hope to make it back for another week get-away.

"What a trip!!!"

Tribal Tulum is central: to town, beach, food, grocery store. You’re literally on the bike path. The yoga was awesome and I can be critical. My non yogi husband even went to class solo!!!

The staff are super nice and helpful. Joanne was a fountain of info and quite the hostess. We stayed onsite. It was clean, bright, all we needed was there for us. ESP the bikes! You won’t regret the trip at all.

"An amazing stay in Tulum!"

Joanne was an excellent host. She checked to make sure everything was ok thought my stay, and gave great suggestions about what to do. I loved the yoga, snorkeling, and my beautiful room below the yoga studio. I also was surprised by the rooftop deck area! Beautiful to count the stars at night. This place is in a great location between the downtown Tulum center and the beach.

"Thoughtfulness expressed in myriad ways"

My accommodation was beautiful, full of natural light and fresh air. The hammock on the patio lulled me to a long nap every afternoon.

The basket of fruit, the jug of potable water, the canister of coffee all conveyed a thoughtful hospitality not commonly experienced in other tourist settings.

The teachers were light-hearted and kind, yet I learned a great deal about alignment and was able to try poses I had not thought possible.

The use of the bikes to roam the neighborhood was again an expression of thoughtfulness.

Leslie Tseng

I loved the the space the location and the people and Joanne her husband everything about it. It's exactly what I needed. A large room with a full kitchen, my own little getaway hammock in a private terrace, The studio located right next to my room where I could use the space at any time if there were no classes being held.

The location was perfect, 15 minute bike ride to the public or hotel beaches and 10 minute walk to town. A supermarket no more than a 3 minute walk across the street as well as a few restaurants next door but not so close that there is a flurry of people around.

The bed was so comfortable and having the option of air conditioning is a plus especially when your coming back from the beach and am need of it.

The aquatic scuba, snorkeling store below was a treat as I didn't have to go anywhere if I wanted to take a special dive.

Joanne made it so welcoming that she catered to each of her guests needs and even organized a Telmezcal ceremony for us to attend. When I arrived she had offered to take me around town and show me special places to eat. She introduced me to another single guest and we wound up spending the whole time exploring together.

I'm planning on returning again in February.

"Relaxing, inspirational stay! Highly recommend!!"

I found this to be the perfect spot for yogis that are looking for a laid-back and less touristy vibe. Tulum is a great sized city where anything is accessible by bike. Joanne is wonderful and gave great recommendations for places to visit, to eat, and to relax. The yoga classes and instructors were great as well. In the few days we were there, we tried 4 different kinds of yoga (including Iyengar) and experienced our first sound bath. Truly a wonderful experience and I cannot wait to visit Tribal Tulum again soon!

Tribal Yoga Tulum is an incredible, peaceful place to spend your days in Tulum. The provide you with a stay at their clean, spacious, modern loft and offer different classes throughout the day. The yoga classes are professional and varied, with different levels and styles for you to try.

Joanne and her team are a happy, warm bunch and they definitely made me miss them as soon as I got on my plane home.

Highly recommended!

"Amazing! "

Everything is perfect here.. Yoga classes, the loft, the location, beaches, the town.. I am so glad I picked this place. This is exactly what I need in vacation.

Tribal Yoga is a beautiful studio surrounded by trees and birds. Teachers are all great and staff there are friendly and helpful.

The location is perfect, closed to the biggest supermarket in the area and everything else is pretty much accessible with a bike which is included if you stay at the loft. The room is clean, has kitchen and AC.. simple yet beautifully decorated.

I enjoyed every moment while I was there. Thank you very much Joanne, Orlando, Leif, Esteban, Marianne! I can't wait to come back and stay with you again!

Love, Peace and Om...

"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 !

"Una experiencia única de yoga en el paraíso"

En el estudio de yoga se respira un ambiente muy acogedor que invita a desarrollar una práctica saludable y sin estrés. Todos los maestros del estudio son grandes profesionales que escucharon en todo momento mis necesidades y me dieron opciones para practicar. Me encantaron los grandes ventanales con vistas a las copas de los árboles y los pájaros de la selva.

Joanne, la anfitriona, te hace sentir como en casa con su amabilidad y atención. La habitación fue muy cómoda, con muchos detalles como agua, frutas e incluso botiquín. Tanto la cocina como el baño estaban muy bien equipados y pude vivir prácticamente como en casa. La conexión al wifi funcionó de forma excelente en todo momento. También me encantó que el paquete incluyera el alquiler de bicicletas para desplazarme a la playa o a los cenotes.

Una experiencia totalmente recomendable, con muchas opciones de yoga y naturaleza al ritmo de uno mismo, sin sentirse obligado a seguir un horario establecido y sin ningún tipo de estrés.
