La Vita e' Bella has direct beach access in a secluded setting near Tulum. Owned by an Italian couple who fell in love with the area during a vacation, the resort is a collection of beachfront bungalows on wooden stilts facing a stretch of rock-free, white sandy beach only a kilometer from the well-preserved Mayan ruins of Tulum. Rooms are simple, with accents of brightly painted tile and bathroom sinks decorated as inverse fishbowls. The on-site restaurant, La Vita e' Bella, specializes in brick-oven pizzas, but also serves Mexican and Mediterranean cuisine.
