It is no surprise that Tulum real estate has become the darling of investors the world over since becoming its own municipality 2008.

What will surprise most people is the fact that Tulum is also a food town with a wide array of international fare.

The increasing number of tourists visiting the area has created a demand for restaurant space that’s made the price of Tulum Commercial Real Estate to go up in value. This is particularly apparent in the two most popular destinations: The beach road and the poblado (a.k.a Tulum town center).
