The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Eat Locally in Tulum


4. Insider’s Tip

Beware of imported produce that's passed off as local on the side of the road, but don't skip coconuts, which are native to the area.  

Most of the fruit you’ll find sold along the side of the road around Tulum is grown in the region, but keep an eye out for imposters, since produce is sometimes imported and passed off as local. (Note boxes, discarded or not, bearing signs of Californian origin.) Be sure to try the green-rinded, extremely juicy oranges that are native to the area, as well as chilled young coconuts, which contain sweet, refreshing nectar.
