The A/C is working from 8PM in the evening till 8AM in the morning. All other cabañas do not have air-conditioning but they have the sea breeze coming into your cabaña. We do have a ceiling fan in each of our rooms above the beds as well as mosquito netting over the bed and on the windows.

We offer free WIFI on the entire premises including all the cabañas, the restaurant area, the garden and even the beach. The only room that has limited WIFI access due to the signal needs to pass two concrete walls is Jungle View Penthouse. Also due to electricity issues in Tulum the WIFI is not as stable as you have it back home.
