Join us for a mezcal tasting in Tulum, Mexico. We are at Gitano Tulum with head bartender Maria Ronchi to learn about the history of mezcal and to try varieties from different regions in Mexico. If there’s a type of mezcal you’d like us to try, let NYT reporter Nilo Tabrizy know in the comments.
The Location: Gitano Tulum
"After returning from a joint birthday trip exploring the Riviera Maya with my best friend a few years ago, I knew I would have to return to Tulum for something special," said the bride. "The quaint beach town was just starting to develop the chic Bohemian persona it has today, and a night out at newly-opened Gitano had completely stolen my heart. Romain and I hadn't gotten engaged yet, but when he popped the question a few months later, Tulum immediately became the front runner for our destination wedding. We wanted to share the same euphoria we had when we first visited Tulum with our guests, so we tried to incorporate details that brought out that special feeling of the Riviera Maya."

"Gitano is all about sharing happiness"
IMAGINE WORKING ALONGSIDE YOUR BEST FRIENDS
The staff are just as naturally inspiring as the setting. A talent pool of chefs, managers, servers, and world-class mixologists, hailing from Mexico, Europe, Canada, USA and all through Central and South America make up the team. The atmosphere is truly family-like and jubilant: akin to putting 25 best friends together for a working shift. Everyone is genuinely happy who works here, and they want this infectious mood to flow into the guests.
Grab a table somewhere near the disco ball, if only because seeing a disco ball bouncing off palm fronds is as amusing as it is unexpected.
