The fashion world’s elite have long known about Tulum and all that it has to offer,electing to spend holidays here whenever the demands of creating the latest must-have clothing and accessories will allow it.
As evidence of the endless love affair between Tulum real estate and the world’s most affluent,the popular American socialite,model and heiress to the Heart Corporation media conglomerate Amanda Hearst,writing as associate market editor for Marie Claire,elected to spend New Year’s Eve in Tulum and described her adventures for the publication.
“Last year,I spent my New Year’s in the Mexican beach town of Tulum and fell so in love with the place that I went again this year!” Hearst gushes.
Her most recent stay involved getting a room at the Maya Tulum,which the heiress describes as being “near the action,but not in the midst of it.” She reports the hotel has a relaxed,family-friendly vibe,as well as a fabulous beach. Hearst recommends the trendier Be Tulum for singles who are looking for more “hustle and bustle à la Miami beach,” because it lies closer to the town’s hottest bars and most popular restaurants.
“Tulum is filled with great places to eat and drink,” writes Hearst. “The local celebrity spot is definitely Posada Margherita.”
Although she says it can be tough to get a table here,the fabulous cuisine is well worth the effort,since all pasta is prepared from scratch each day and the menu changes to feature the freshest fish and produce. Other of Hearst’s picks include Casa Banana for Argentinian-style steak,El Tabano for breakfast and Hemingway’s for a drink overlooking the beach. She is also quick to point out that Tulum is home to a wide variety of first-rate international cuisine and is not limited to serving just local or typical Mexican favorites.
Hearst also recommends a trip to view and swim in a few of the area’s many freshwater lagoons,known as cenotes,which are found both above and below ground. In addition,she enjoyed biking down to Hotel Coqui-Coqui,which is home to a variety of one of a kind boutiques,offering items from internationally established fashion designers.
