Cabañas in Tulum

About a 10-minute walk from the ruins, this beachside place resembles a little Smurf village with its painted cabañas. Bare-bones cabins (basically just a bed with mosquito net) have electricity available from 7pm to 8am, while more expensive air-conditioned rooms run on 24-hour electricity. Apparently, cleanliness is not a virtue here. Bring insect repellent!

There are swings and a jungle gym for kiddos.
