Are you heading to Tulum and wondering where the best places to watch the sunset might be?
Typically, we love to observe a good sunset on the beach, as it falls behind the horizon, but in Tulum, as it’s on the east coast, you get the privilege of having a slightly different viewing experience.
You can witness the sun setting over the jungle of Tulum, with the beach behind you, to the sounds of the wildlife while sipping on a margarita – good vibes all around!
Ciel Rose Sunset Bar
If you’re looking for one of the easiest and most accessible, budget-friendly rooftop bars to go and marvel at the sun setting over the horizon but still be a stone’s throw from all the action, then Ciel Rose is for you!
Ciel Rose translates to the pink sky, so it’s very aptly named.
Giving you the most incredible 360º views of Tulum, with acres of jungle ahead of you and beautiful beaches of the Mexican Caribbean sea behind you.
This one is perfect if you perhaps missed out on booking some of the more exclusive or high-budget options.

Located down at Tulum Beach, at the back of Puro Corazón restaurant, you can climb a stairway to the sky and take a seat to spend a memorable evening, either solo, with friends or family.
Make sure to try their zesty pineapple guacamole and chips or their tuna ceviche tostada, and wash it down with a punchy margarita or a local beer.
Mateo’s Mexican Grill and Bar
Open from 12 pm – 11 pm and located in the hotel zone of Tulum, you have your very own sunset lounge built into the treetops of the Tulum jungle at Mateo’s.
A two-level platform kitted out with sofas, hammocks, and cozy booths, including a delicious Tex-Mex grill, a sports bar, and many different types of tequila await for you to enjoy.
There is usually live music and a really good atmosphere, with wonderful service – so it makes for the perfect sunset hangout after lazing around the beach all day.

If you’re looking for something a little more intimate, special, and romantic, then this is the one for you.
Azulik is a boho luxury tree house hotel, which provides Kin Toh, the bar which features a maze of handmade wooden paths, twisting and turning in between the treetops.
This is an eco-conscious sunset spot that is calling your name.
Picture yourself stepping out of your hotel and into the jungle to sit in the giant bird nests filled with cushions — allowing you to have the most perfect place to overlook the sun setting over the jungle with a cocktail in hand.

It is located between the Mayan Jungle and turquoise ocean waters, and will certainly take your breath away the second you arrive.
It’s a moment when you can just stop in time and be present, marveling at how incredible this earth is; despite it being a super expensive experience, it is highly recommended you witness this at least once in your life.
It’s definitely one you need to book in advance before you go as well.

Atico Rooftop Bar & Lounge
This breathtaking rooftop bar and lounge features a restaurant for semi-casual sunset dining, an exciting atmosphere, and an insane view of the sunset from the rooftop, including an infinity pool that looks over the jungle and the ocean in the far distance.
It’s clean and youthful but also super casual, with a chilled California vibe to it, somewhat different from the typical Tulum vibes.
Try the sliders or the guacamole, and finish it off with the matcha ice cream while enjoying the impeccable service. This non-pretentious, undiscovered rooftop pool, restaurant, and bar is one of the best places you might not know about to watch the sunset in Tulum!
