The Space

In the middle of Tulum , not far from the center of town , there`s AEROLITO , a charming hide-out . Tucked into a lush tropical garden there are our individually decorated rooms : Casa del Arbol ( treehouse ), Rincon Precioso ( mayan style stone house ), Casa Alux ( original mayan cabin ).

CASA ALUX is an authentic mayan hut . It·s in between the Treehouse and the Rincon Precioso . It is equipped wih a doublebed and a mosquitonet , a sofa that can be transformed into a bed , fans , sheets and towels .
The private bathroom with a hot and cold watershower is outside the room,

Mexico is a lifely country , so is Tulum . At AEROLITO you can enjoy an oasis away from the busy and noisy street . But please note that you can hear dogs , cocks , mexicans selling goods on the street or people having a party .

Tulum is now a fast growing city , And its getting louder .
The life in Mexico is outdoor , also the fiestas are in open spaces without walls or windows and so its dificult to keep the sounds apart .

Every morning we prepare a delicious breakfast .

Coffe or tea, fresh fruit and juice, natural yogurt and homemade granola ,
Bread and local honey ,
Also eggs and beans and hot sauces , always diferent in flavours and colours .

Getting around

You can easily reach the closest beach in a 20 minutes bikeride
( In AEROLITO we are renting bicycles to our guests for 50 Pesos per day )
Tulum offers many things to do ,
swimming in a cenote with cristalclear natural water , visiting an arqueological site , like Tulum , Coba or Muyil .
snorkeling , diving , exploring .
Maybe a daytrip to (website hidden) AEROLITO we will help you with advice and ideas to plan your trip .

AEROLITO is just 4 squares to the mainroad of Tulum , where you can find many restaurants and bars , also the busstation and other public transportation .

Note

Sometimes I still can hear the waves of the ocean in a silent night in the low season . Tulum is a new city and it's growing steadily. More people are coming to this paradise, and so the noise level is growing as well . Mexico (email hidden)ly and noisy country , life happens often on the streets . Dogs are here to guard houses , the cocks cry early in the morning and party starts usually at 11 pm ending a 4 am . AEROLITO is a quiet oasis in the center , four blocks away from the main strip . It depends from where the wind blows , and where the moon is , noise comes from outside into this paradise .

  • My husband and I stayed at Casa Alux in July 2014, and we had a great experience! Ariane is a wonderful hostess. She made a point of sitting and having a conversation with us each morning at breakfast. She gave the best advice on local restaurants, and places worth sightseeing. The breakfasts she provided each morning were delicious--I absolutely loved the frijoles!! For those of you who just can't quite let go of technology while on vacation (as we are), her wifi is great--we were able to stream Netflix during our stay with no problems :) She also provides free unfiltered water for guests, which is such a great a rare perk - there's a water dispenser in the guest kitchen that you can use each day to fill your water bottles. The only con I had is that there wasn't any hot water in the shower. I don't know if this is a normal occurrence though. And most days it was so hot and humid that a cold shower was actually very refreshing, but I just thought it was worth mentioning.

    Overall we had a wonderful experience, and we will definitely stay with Ariane the next time we visit Tulum!

  • Ariane is a wonderful host. She has loads of great advice and helps with whatever you want to get done around Tulum. The gardens and rooms are beautiful and calm. Plus fantastic breakfasts!

  • Awesome host, very helpful with everything we needed - Ariane generously loaned us snorkels for a trip to Akumal and aloe when we got a little burned. The breakfast was super yummy as well - fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, THE HONEY - all eaten in a beautiful setting surrounded by fruit trees.

    I should mention that my boyfriend was concerned about staying in a place without A/C but found the casita very comfortable!

  • My girlfriend and I stayed in Ariane's Casa Alux for 4 nights while visiting Tulum. It was a great location in the centre of Tulum, a short walk from the bus station and main street of the town, lots of great local street food nearby and more touristy restaurants on the main street. Our little cabana was clean, tidy and all we needed for our stay in Tulum. There is a nice bathroom and a great little kitchen to be used. Arian provides filtered drinking water and an AMAZING breakfast each morning for her guests, this was one of the highlights. Ariane was so helpful and recommended some great places to eat and the best cenotes. Would highly recommend staying here - also the bikes Ariane provided were great and saved us renting bikes in town. Definitely great value for money. The description mentions it can be noisy but we didn't find it noisy at all and enjoyed the sound of birds in Arianes garden. Would highly recommend a stay at Aerolito and Ariane as a wonderful lovely host. Enjoy!

  • We had a great stay here. Clean, comfortable and in a good downtown location. Great breakfast each morning as well. We had no issues with noise and slept fine each night. We would stay here again.

  • Every thing was perfect. You have to follow the instructions given by Arianne to find the place.

    Then it's close to everything thank's to the cheap cabs !

  • Ariane was a great host with a beautiful property. would love to go back!

  • Ariane has been a great host and we loved Aerolito and the tree house was perfect! The location is perfect, close to Tulum main street and still quiet and relaxed with beautiful exotic garden and lovely surroundings! Really enjoyed breakfast there and so easy to rent bikes and cruise around. Ariane has also given us great advice on where to go and what to do in our journey through Yucatan and Chiapas. I highly recommend this place when u go to Tulum, way more real then the area with hotels and mass tourism;) thank you Ariane!

  • Ariane's set up is so, so cool! We met other travelers who also stayed at her other properties and we really liked having breakfast with them. The eggs prepared for us were so delicious! Ariane is a terrific, thoughtful, and a fun host and we definitely recommend this to travelers seeking adventure and a different experience.

  • Sur 4 nuits prévues chez Ariane, une seule nous a suffi.
    Mise à part la gentillesse de notre hôte, nous n'avons pas apprécié les cabanes "ouvertes" très sommaires. Le bruit pendant la nuit était insupportable. Nous avons "dormi" avec des polaires.
    Elles sont situées dans un jardin un peu fouilli et sont très loin de la plage (si vous n'êtes pas véhiculés, cela peut s'avérer problématique)
    Les petits déjeuners sont corrects.
    Prix excessif par rapport à la prestation.

About
I was born in Germany and I live in Mexico since 1985. My 2 children are born in Tulum. I work as a massagetherapist, I bake bread and I do jewelery and I really enjoy time for doing yoga or swimming. Tulum and the mexican Carribean is full of natural beauty and I call myself lucky to have discovered it so many years ago. I am still learning how Airbnb works. I like renting my space, so I can get in touch with people from all over the world. Looking forward to meet you Ariane
