Daniel is awesome.

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... read more

About the power, it usually doesn´t happen, but unfortunatly we had a problem with the generator for couple of hours, while you were enjoing some of our vegetarian dishes, but we improved to prevent this happen...

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!

I went to Puro Corazon with my family for late night drinks. Of all the restaurants we experienced on this trip, we all thought Puro Corazon was the most charming.

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

We had a tasty lunch here. What makes their food are the unique sauces or relishes, made from fresh fruits or chiles. Try the agua chile with shrimp, which is the house specialty. It was excellent!
