Daniel not only provided amazing dinner recommendations (delicious), but he gave us incredible travel advice. The power continued to cut in and out, but that's all OK. When I complimented him on his English, he said, "The best way to know a culture is by its language, its food and its love." Did he steal that? Anyway, we had amazing... More

Puro Corazon serves delicious dishes and excellent cocktails. The decor is simple and welcoming, service is impeccable and it's simply the best place in Tulum for live music. When I went there, a band called "Padrinos Magicos" was playing and the place was filled with a really incredible atmosphere, with both tourists and locals enjoying dinner and drinks. Highly recommended!

I had an amazing time at Puro Corazon: the band which was playing (Los Padrinos) were outstanding, the food and the cocktails were amazing, and I just loved the gypsy vibe. Definitely recommand. It's just different from other American-like posh restaurants.

You can't walk by without stopping in your tracks. The whole restaurant is decorated in layers of Myan Folk Art style. Colorful but relaxed vibe. The Shrimp Pepper was fabulous, and the live local band was awesome!

Food here is outstanding - the best we had on our 4 day trip. The seafood is very fresh, with large portions (shrimp are huge) and plenty of choices of chicken or beef as well. Drinks are delicious and strong with over 50 tequilas behind the bar. Owner is French, so I imagine those influences have made their way into... More
