We're super excited to announce a brand new weekly blog segment, Travel Tuesday! Each week we will be highlighting our wolfpack traveling the world in their sustainable threads.
Our first destination to feature is the magical Tulum, Mexico. If you've never been to Mexico, Tulum should be the reason why you go. Located on the Caribbean coast of the amazing central American country, Tulum has so much beauty to offer. From white sand beaches, crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, and stunning ancient ruins, there's so much to take in. Before you take your journey to this incredible part of the world, read on for travel tips, and make sure you pack your sustainable swimwear. Nothing is sexier on the beach than wearing a suit that directly protects the ocean you're swimming in.
Stay: There are so many nice places to stay from in Tulum, so we are giving you three different hotel options all at a different price range.
The first is Yoga Shala Tulum for a small spending option. This tropical, off the grid hotel lets you fully connect with Mother Earth. Take a yoga class, get a massage, and enjoy the lush jungle you are engulfed in while you're at Yoga Shala. Take time during your busy vacation to relax & heal and love yourself & your planet.

For a medium spending option, we would recommend Shambala Petit Hotel. This beachfront hotel hosts yoga retreats and lets you do your sun salutations in a beautiful studio overlooking the ocean. Obviously we love a hotel that gives us a sacred space to get our flow in before heading out on an adventure!
If you have a larger spending budget for your trip, the Azulik Tulum is hands down the place to stay in Tulum. Transport yourself into lush, green jungles while overlooking the beautiful, powerful blue sea. This resort is luxurious, but eco-friendly. The organic architecture allows the trees to grow freely and the soil to stay healthy. The whole resort is lit by candles at night, creating a magical, romantic experience that does no harm to the planet. The beautiful cenote on the property fills the handcrafted bathtubs in each room with its sacred water for you to enjoy.
Eat: Aside from the assortment of fresh, ripe fruits you can buy walking through town, we found a magical little vegan spot you must try, Raw Love Tulum. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so start yours right even while you're on vacation and get a delicious smoothie bowl! I don't think you can get a better, or fresher smoothie bowl than right in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by beautiful and healthy fruits.
See: You obviously need to go see the archaeological magic that is the Tulum Ruins while you are in Quintana Roo! They are amazing and transport you to another time. The beach behind the ruins is so lovely and gives you an incredible view of the site from the ocean!
To stay active on vacation, rent a standup paddle board and do sunset yoga while the waves of the Caribbean Sea splash against your board. SUP yoga is far more challenging than practicing with the support of our beloved earth. It will help develop your balance even further, while making you increase your focus. Being out on the open water is calming and can take you to an even further point of relaxation.
Lastly, this area in Mexico is so populated with natural, unbelievably beautiful cenotes. Grab your favorite suit from the Ascension collection, take a dip, and feel like the mermaid goddess that you are. But make sure you rinse off before you jump in! The cenotes offer fresh, natural water to many people on the Yucatan Peninsula and sunscreen, bug spray, and many other products will release a lot of dangerous chemicals into these pristine waters. You can buy bio-degradable sunscreen before you head out on your adventure as well!
