Every summer families everywhere are faced with the decision of where to take their children on vacation. It's important to choose a location that is kid-friendly,but also has things to offer mom and dad. This year,Access Hollywood named the top five kid-friendly vacation destinations,and Tulum Mexico made the cut.
Tulum was recognized for its Eco-chic Amansala Resort,which is located in the Riviera Maya close to some of the world's most amazing ancient Mayan ruins and just two hours south of Cancun. The resort features a bikini boot camp,a world-class spa and prides itself on being welcoming to families. The palapas are extra large and the beaches are clean and boast a soft,fine white sand that is easy on tiny feet. The resort provides bicycles for use to ride into the town or explore the ruins,and other favorite activities include jungle excursions and visits to Xcaret,the nearby Eco-friendly archaeological park that is world-renowned for its underground rivers and cenotes,many of which are perfect for swimming.
The Amansala Resort also offers pilates classes and fabulous organic food items,while the spa specializes in Mayan healing rituals. In addition,the resort has been known to play host to celebrities from time to time,thanks to Tulum's growing status as a destination for A-listers looking for a quiet place to get away from it all. Famous actors and musicians enjoy a level of anonymity here that can be hard to attain in many other areas of the world,but Tulum real estate is also situated close enough to the lively nightlife that can be found at Cancun and Playa del Carmen,that it is a breeze to experience some excitement.
Recent celebrities who have been spotted in Tulum include: Drew Barrymore,Sienna Miller,Jade Jagger,Jude Law,Ryan Phillippe with Amanda Seyfried and Kate Bosworth with her current flame Alexander Skarsgarde from True Blood.
