We had another fantastic vacation at Vida Silvestre. This was our second time here and plan to keep coming back. Laury greeted us exactly on time at the location. She was consistently available to answer questions via email throughout our stay. She is also very knowledgeable about the restaurants and sights around Tulum. We also enjoyed just talking to her when we'd see her around the pool. The villas here are clean and BIG. We loved having the space, the two bathrooms, and the kitchen to cook breakfasts in. There's a yoga studio about 2 mins walking away where we bought a week pass and did yoga everyday. It was truly a great vacation, overall.
Dear Severa Vida Silvestre is always open for you! Thank you for sharing your soo good vibes with us and enjoy our Paradise with so much peace & love! Always welcome and we are here for you!
All the bests!
Vida Silvestre was perfect for our week long getaway! The Villa was well appointed and matched the description perfectly. We felt right at home, right down to being able to make some stove top espresso every morning. The grounds were beautiful, quite and relaxing. We spent a lot of time by the pool; and even though all of the Villas were occupied, we still felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The walk to the beach was super easy using either Be Tulum or Los Ranitas as access points (and places to grab food and drinks).
Laury could not have been a nicer host. She answered all of our questions and made us feel welcome and safe. She also had plenty of ideas for good food and things to do.
Overall, our stay was perfect and I would highly recommend Vida Silvestre for those looking for an alternative to the standard beach hotels.
Thank you Matt! Was a pleasure to have you with us! Please come back anytime! Gracias!!
Vida Silvestre was perfect! The villa was clean and comfortable. Laury & Oscar were available and immensely helpful. There was some noise from the hotel generators, as other reviewers have mentioned, but it wasn't intrusive and seemed to disappear at night.
This was our first time to Tulum and Laury provided plenty of great tips. Simple, the seafood restaurant she pointed us to our first evening there, had delicious food and super friendly service! We ended up eating there twice and once in the breakfast/sandwich shop connected to the restaurant, Tulumski (inspired by the Big Lebowski!).
We also had dinner once and then returned for drinks at Mama Muu right next to Vida Silvestre. They have simple but yummy grilled food and an incredible selection of mezcal. The drinks we had at Mama Muu were the best we had on the whole trip (including the ones we had at the much-hyped Gitano. Those were good, too, but the place was a bit too fancy bro-ish for our taste. Mama Muu was way more chill!)
We didn't have a car, which for 5 days was no problem at all. We used USA Transfers to get from the airport to Tulum and back. Super easy! We took advantage of the bikes at VS (just $10 for the whole stay) and rode out to the big grocery store as well as to the Mayan ruins. We took a cab to the cenote Laury recommended, Cenote Cristal, and stopped off in the pueblo on the way back for coffee and waffle (Cafe Babel) then cabbed back to the beach. No problem!
What else? We hung out at the beach near Aura & also Las Ranitas. As others have mentioned, it wasn't a big deal to use their beach chairs. We just had to buy a couple of drinks and snacks which we would have wanted anyway! We also had drinks and the best ceviche of the trip at Be Tulum as well as delicious breakfast there on our last morning. And one last mezcal margarita!
We spent the whole time we were staying at Villa Silvestre talking about how we needed to come back with friends and stay for longer. And we will!!
Thank you Lisa!
We are here for you anythime!
All the best!
Vida Silvestre was the perfect getaway spot. We felt like we were in a gorgeous tropical treehouse. The location is great- right on the "strip". Beach access is super easy through one of two hotels right across the road. There's also super easy access to other restaurants, yoga, and shops. The villas are exactly as pictured, private, well maintained and beautifully designed. Laury was wonderful, she met us right when we arrived, provided fresh water and suggestions for breakfast spots and yoga. If we're ever lucky enough to visit Tulum again we will definitely stay at Vida Silvestre again. :)
Thank you Erica!

This place is a paradise! Peaceful, beautiful and conveniently located. Amazing beach across the street (through Las Ranitas), a few good restaurants walking distance. Laury was great - she was there to welcome us and gave us great suggestions on where to go/what to do.
Laury met us upon arrival, escorted us to our room and was lovely. Rooms were well appointed, simple, eco-chic. The only drawback was the non-stop sound of a generator close by - a pretty common occurrence in Tulum.
Our stay at Vida Silvestre was truly spectacular! Laury was inredibly freindly, welcoming and accomadating. She provided plenty of helpful recommendations via email before we arrived and in person once we settled in. The villa itself was amazing. It seemed to be one of the few places to stay on the jungle side of the beach road, but having walked up and down the beach several times during the week I didn't see any other place I would rather have stayed. The grounds were imaculately kept (by Oscar) and felt like a true sanctuary. The villa itself felt like a luxury treehouse. We were able to access the beach through Las Ranitas accross the street and used their chairs if we purchased items from their beach menu, which was not a problem because it was very good and not too pricey. The pool on the property was also a delite! It was perfect for a cool dip after a hot day on the beach and perfect for our kids too, as it is tiered with a large shallow portion for them to play.
Overall I highly recommend Vida SIlvestre...we will definitely be back!
Thank to you and your Family Mark! Bests Regards! Laury
Amazing Experience!!! We loved our villa and it made our trip. The style and vibe of the place was amazing. The hosts were really helpful and housekeeping staff was great. The location is off the beaten path enough but still close to everything. thanks for a wonderful vacation.
The villa was just as shown in photos and absolutely beautiful. It's not beachfront, but you have so many options right across the street that it doesn't matter. Our experience was absolutely perfect and lovely. I imagine it may get very hot in the rooms during summer, but in February, we were just fine without air. Beautiful and hope to come back soon!
enjoyed stay - no ac so hot months a stretch - remote feel but close to beach -small but nice pool - great staff - I would go back
