Tulum: Gitano Island
Cruise on over to Gitano Island, a little slice of Tulum that’s just a five-minute ferry ride away from Manhattan on yes, an actual New York island (Governors, to be exact). Overflowing with lush greenery and palm trees galore, the bohemian beach escape brings Mexican spice and everything nice to this secret corner of the city. Whether you get the party started early at boozy brunch, or arrive just as the sun goes down over the horizon, don’t be afraid to show a little skin in colorful, south-of-the-border looks. You can truly get away with it all among the wooden pergolas and open-air disco ball glittering over the sand. And if that isn’t enough to let loose, the mezcal margaritas on deck won’t hurt.
