Upgrade Your Holiday Stay With These Activities

Updated: Dec 13, 2022

This year's holidays feel kind of different. Not only because they will be the first more normal ones after the pandemic but also because traveling has become regular in pretty much every country. Finally, travelers can book winter holidays with confidence and ease!

People often ask us, what is there to do in Tulum for Christmas to make it special?

While the ease of soaking up sunshine on the white sand beach and playing in the turquoise sea is already a magical way to spend your holiday, we have decided to offer something extra special to our Christmas holiday guests this season. If you plan to spend your holiday at any of our Zorba Collective properties, we want to offer you 5 extraordinary and local experiences to make your stay unforgettable!

1. Piñata-making workshop

If you are traveling with kids or want to tune into your inner child, this free workshop will not only teach you the history of traditional piñatas but will put your creativity to work as you create your own. Plus, you can fill them with traditional candies and have a piñata party after!

2. Ceramic painting workshop

There's nothing more relaxing than painting with the sound of the waves and birds in the background. Learn how to paint traditional Mexican ceramics and enjoy a relaxing day with your loved ones while creating something beautiful you can take back home as a gift.

3. Spanish lessons for kids

Learning a new language it's always easier when you are in the native language country, and even more when it's fun! Give your kids the amazing opportunity to learn this beautiful language while they can practice it in place by ordering their own food or reading and listening to it everywhere they go.

4. Tequila – Mezcal tasting

Don’t worry we have activities for the adults as well! A trip to Mexico would not be complete without trying the signature libations of Tequila or Mezcal. Learn more about these two traditional beverages and taste different varieties so you can return home as an expert.

5. Mexican Food tasting with a Mariachi band

Every traditional Mexican celebration includes good food and a Mariachi band. Taste the flavors of Mexican cuisine while listening to the most traditional Mariachi songs. Dance, laugh, and enjoy with the entire family while living the Mexican experience to its fullest! Not only is this a feast for all the senses but you will have exciting stories to tell on your return! Our concierge team can create a magical holiday celebration you will cherish and remember.

Any of these activities can be offered onsite for our Christmas holiday guests – must pre-book at Great for groups and families with kids of all ages.

Our concierge team is also happy to assist with off-site excursions to a local cenote or to the Tulum Ruins or Muyil with a trusted local guide. All excursions include transportation from the properties.

At Zorba and Mahayana, we are always looking to give our guests the most genuine and authentic experience while visiting Tulum. Let us know what you have in mind for the celebrations, and we will help to accommodate your wishes!
