  • Post comments:0 Comments

Are you thinking of booking yourself a destination boudoir photo shoot in Tulum?

Planning a trip to Tulum may seem daunting and like a lot of work, but it actually isn’t when booking with our studio.

Why? Well because your boudoir photographer (me!) has been based in Tulum for 3 years now. 

This means, when you book your boudoir shoot in Tulum, I’m giving you all my insider tips and recommendations on what you need to know and how to make the most out of this trip of a lifetime.

In fact, you’ll receive our entire Tulum Travel Guide when booking your boudoir session. You’ll know exactly what to expect and how to plan for your trip.

One of the things Tulum is known for is it’s therapeutic atmosphere and activities. For many, being in Tulum feeds their soul and rejuvenates their mind and body.  Which makes it the perfect complement to your sexy and self-loving boudoir session.

So, I wanted to share with you a Healing 4-day Tulum Travel Itinerary for those of you who want to focus your time here on reconnecting to yourself… which, is what the boudoir experience is all about!

Let’s get into it!

Day 1: Healing

Before your photo shoot in Tulum, you can practice re-centering yourself and stretching out those travel kinks with yoga.

At Holistika Hotel, they offer every type of yoga under the sun, sound healing, and incredible spa treatments, amongst many other types of workshops. Try out aerial silks, breathwork or Kundalini yoga (my personal favorite and where I practice yoga regularly).

For healthy and organic groceries and vitamins/supplements, you can walk down to Gypsea Market from Holistika. Or visit Bio & Natural for even more variety of supplements and an amazing restaurant that focuses on nourishing the body. Bio & Natural is on the other side of town heading towards the beach.

If you would like to make healing a more extensive part of your itinerary, then you can make a trip to the healing cenote waters. The Yucatan peninsula is rich in cenotes (limestone swimming holes found in the jungle). There are literally thousands in the area and half the fun in touring around is getting to see all the variety of cenotes. Cenote hopping is definitely a thing and may be one of the highlights of your trip.

Pro tip: Don’t forget to drink plenty of water and lather on the sunscreen as you venture outside before shoot day. We don’t want you to be burnt for your session.

Day 2: Personal Development

A boudoir photo shoot becomes a pivotal part of your personal development journey because it encourages you to get out of your comfort zone and see yourself in a brand new way.

So, what better way to spend your second day in Tulum than by challenging yourself to try something new that will expand your horizons.

One of my favorite ways to do this is to go to a beach club or restaurant by myself and be open to making new connections.

Some of my favorite places to visit are Ziggy’s Beach Club for the atmosphere and Sunday night jazz, Co.Con Amor for the nourishing veggie food and Humo for the sultry vibes.

Let the confidence from your destination experience flow through you and keep you out of your comfort zone for a little bit.  

You never know how your perspective will shift or who you’ll cross paths with.

Afterwards, you can reward yourself with a stroll on the beach or a walk through town.

Spending the day before your boudoir session this way will lead you to walk into your photo shoot feeling radiant and like anything is possible.

Day 3: Your Boudoir Photo Shoot

Your photo shoot in Tulum will take up nearly half the day between hair and makeup, travel, shoot time, etc.  

So you’ll want to plan on a leisurely morning, devoting the first few hours of the day to a good breakfast and getting in the zone for your session.

Do NOT stress the day of your photo shoot. Take your time to be mindful with your morning and prep yourself to be ready for hair and makeup when we arrive to your hotel.

Then, get ready for what some clients have described as “the most amazing experience of their life!” as we venture to our shoot location and help you feel like a total Goddess from head to toe.

After your boudoir session, enjoy a nice local dinner within walking distance from your accommodations and if you are anything like me, an early night in to reflect, journal, and recharge for the next day.

For a nice authentic Mexican dinner, I recommend El Asadero, Sabor de Mar, and Pozolería La Mexicanita

Day 4: Self-Care

I think that spending your last day(s) in Tulum indulging in self-care activities is the perfect way to end your trip.  This will help you relax, meditate on your experience, and return home with a fully integrated sense of confidence.

If you are feeling the call to indulge more spiritually, you can book a temazcal or cacao ceremony. These popular ceremonies are prevalent throughout the Yucatan peninsula and are intended to cleanse our spirit and unite heart, mind and body.

They also double as an opportunity to experience the local culture and enjoy some dancing and singing during your last night in Tulum. 

If you have the time to extend your trip beyond four days, I highly recommend booking an overnight excursion to Bacalar.  

This is more of an off-the-beaten-path spot that is quiet and surrounded by stunning lake views. Bacalar, known as the lake of 7 colors, has grown a lot in popularity in the last 5+ years, so be sure to visit while it’s still a lesser known gem.
