With its vivid blue Caribbean waters, proximity to historical sites and world-class restaurants like Heartwood and Arca, it’s no surprise that Tulum has become a must-visit for jet setters and wellness travelers. The once sleepy fishing village still feels more bohemian than the Yucatán Peninsula destinations of Playa del Carmen and Cancun with its more rugged jungle landscape and authentic downtown that still caters to locals. Hotels and resorts play up their exotic surroundings with low impact architecture, open-air restaurants serving wood-fired seafood and all the beachfront yoga and meditation sessions a wellness seeker could ask for.

While Tulum is trendy, note that most of the best hotels offer eco-chic luxury (if you’re looking for a large resort experience, look elsewhere) and are located along the 6-mile-long stretch of beachfront from the Tulum Ruins to the soft sand beach in the south end. Here are the 10 best hotels in Tulum, including a Robinson Crusoe-esque luxury guesthouse on the beach and a modernist treehouse hotel surrounded by jungle.

There’s arguably no place more transporting than the Las Vegas Strip. Within convenient walking distance of wherever you’re staying you’ll find the Eiffel Tower, Lago di Como and an Egyptian pyramid topped with a laser beam so bright you can see it from space. A visiting Italian friend, expecting to hate our Piazza San Marco, instead marveled at the novelty of experiencing it sans marauding pigeons.

Much of this began as schtick, of course, but the race to accommodate an increasingly well-traveled and cosmopolitan visitor has made the resorts along the three-mile stretch among the best luxury accommodations in the world, and at some of the most reasonable prices for travelers. Each resort provides a distinctly different travel experience; what’s good for you and all the kids is not ideal for a sexy weekend a deux, for instance. Perhaps you’re looking for the best luxury hotel overall, or you’re looking for a more authentic experience via a hotel with a 5-star location. No matter what’s on your agenda, here are the best hotels in Las Vegas for all kinds of vacationers.
