In recent years,the small eco-chic beach town of Tulum,Mexico,has received a growing number of impressive accolades from the world’s most respected travel publications for its unique blend of luxury,sustainability and – of course – its beaches.
“This is a great beach,by any standard,” writes Condé Nast Traveller in a recent feature on recommended beach holidays. “Everything is bright and beautiful.”
From fashion’s elite to Hollywood A-listers and other travelers of all types looking for an affordable,luxurious,eco-friendly vacation destination,Tulum real estate definitely has exactly what it takes to draw in visitors. Here,ancient Mayan ruins are perched atop a cliff overlooking the shimmering turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean,while the nearby town and local resorts prove that a posh,top-quality vacation destination can also be laid-back and put environmental concerns first.
“The beach at [nearby] Akumal is covered with swarms of snorkellers and swimmers and divers,” writes Condé Nast. “Under the water,it’s apparent why.”
In Tulum,the waters are teeming with life,including turtles,manta rays,squid,parrotfish and many other varieties. And the beaches at Tulum are – quite literally – second to none,covered with soft,powdery white sand that feels simply delightful under foot. In addition,the area’s many cenotes have become a major attraction. These deep natural sinkholes are formed when the limestone bedrock collapses and exposes the fresh groundwater below.
London and Paris-based Eluxe Magazine also paid tribute to Tulum’s appeal in a recent article,which focused on the area’s penchant for luxury and the natural environment. Here,resorts and other developments believe that comfort and sustainability need not be mutually exclusive,boasting spacious rooms constructed using locally harvested wood and stone and recycling baskets that are readily available throughout the grounds. In addition,the cuisine is typically created using the freshest,locally produced food with organic fruit,herbs and vegetables in the mix whenever possible.
The bottom line? Now is the best time to plan a trip and experience everything Tulum has to offer!
