Minimalism on the Mayan Coast: The Hacienda-Style Casa Pueblo in Tulum

February 7, 2019

Consider this our good deed for February. If you haven’t yet planned a spring getaway to replenish your vitamin D stores, you may want to check out Casa Pueblo, a design-focused, hacienda-style hotel that opened last January in Tulum. In addition to its Instagram-worthy architecture, appealing minimalist interiors, and intimate size, the hotel boasts affordable rates; when we checked April dates recently, a room with a king bed was $180 per night, and with a queen bed, $150.

Let’s take a tour.
