It can feel like the entirety of New York’s fashion crowd decamps for Tulum at some point in the winter. So unsurprisingly, local boutiques (and their expat owners) have risen to the challenge of supplying unexpected and stylish buys. The shops in Tulum celebrate the local—most are stocked with only Mexican or Latin American designers. And you’ll find incredible buys here, from designer shoes (Katie James, a Tulum native, makes gorgeous leather sandals) to beachy cover-ups (pick them up at Caravana Montaecristo) or traditional crafts (at Mixik, with locations both on the beach road and downtown). And the shops here are open late—many until 10 p.m.—so you could easily pop in for some late-night retail therapy after dinner.
