AE Loves Mexico!
El Tabano is one of our absolute favorite places in Mexico. It's a little roadside restaurant right in the heart of Tulum. The owner, Laura, is fabulous and has cultivated an amazing group of local Mexican women to prepare the food in their open air kitchen. This traditional Mexican food is served Tapas style (Laura is Spanish) and the larger your group, the more delicious dishes you can sample. They also make fantastic artisan cocktails like cucumber margaritas and mojitos. The level of service and food are so amazing that you almost forget you are in the middle of the jungle until the lights dim when the blender is turned on. Now that's true Tulum style.
