People don't have addresses in Playa, you have to describe the local geography, shops, house colours etc

Sheesh, you can sleep in our loft in a hammock with mosquito netting and a fan ALL NIGHT LONG with a whole shower house at your disposal in exchange for a few boxes of Family Size Low Fat Triscuits! (And it's just 60 steps to the beach! )

Its just my strange sense of humor.

I think they do as I had to tell a taxi driver to take me to my friends place & she told me it was:
Col.Ejidal
Diagonal 75
Manzana 47
Lote 3A
And we found it!

I know its not like Canada nor the USA though,been there a few times!

What, at that price!

You can cover yourself with a layer of mud though.

We stopped in there for drinks last week, it was pretty near the "rustic" cabanas we were staying at (Hamaca Loca). The place was very beautiful, very nice dining room and beach area. Didn't see any of the cabanas in person but the people we spoke to said they were great. The prices are normal for that area of Tulum and that level of luxury (electricity, ceiling fans, soft sheets and on the beach tends to go for about $100/night it seems, and only one or two places on the whole beach has A/C...but with that ocean wind you don't need it!)

I would seriously consider staying there if we came back in low season. It was really tempting and it's on such a great stretch of beach.

Don't know about their rooms, but their bar is really fun. The kiteboard instructors hang out there, so it's a pretty interesting mix of people. They made the best margaritas I've ever had. The bartender squeezed fresh limes for each margarita - no mixes used.

The location is just next to Nueva Vida, to the left with your back towards the ocean, about a year ago someone had started to re-do the place and did not get very far, about 8 months ago the place started to be remodeled again, hence what it is now, but yes they had to have done some major overhaul for the rates they want. There is a parcel of land between La Zebra and Nueva Vida that is owned by a Canadian/ Australian couple I guess its just a matter of time before they are bought out by Nueva Vida or La Zebra.

Hmmm... not really. It's way down the other way. You turn right at the "T" instead of left and go a reeeeeeally long way down the road to get to La Zebra. El Paraiso is to the left about 3/4 of the way or so to the ruins.

OK. I got the name of the adjacent hotel wrong. The hotel next to El Paraiso is La Vita e bella. Makes sense now. Anyhooo, La Zebra is in a great spot.
