Tulum: The IT place for tourists and investors

Tulum was once a small backpackers haven, but as the world found out about its pristine white sand beaches, turquoise waters and spectacular natural beauty, Tulum has quickly become one of the top travel destinations in the world. You can’t open Instagram or a travel magazine without seeing a beautiful influencer in Tulum, sipping an iced latte in a boho-chic cafe on the beach or diving into a deep blue cenote. After reading this article, you’ll know exactly why Tulum has quickly become the “it” place for both tourists and real estate investors.

Tulum’s natural wonders

The impressive beaches aren’t the only natural wonder that Tulum has to offer. This picturesque town is also dotted with magical cenotes. These freshwater sinkholes are a natural phenomenon that has only occurred in the Yucatan Peninsula, and Tulum has a hearty share of them. From the fascinating deep, dark caverns of Dos Ojos, to the bright and dreamy jungle location of Gran Cenote, there’s a cenote for everyone.

Tulum is also home to Kaan Luum, a turquoise lagoon that reaches an impressive 82m in the centre and just waist height around the edge. This is the perfect spot to relax, connect with nature and maybe even explore on a kayak.

Possibly one of the most famous natural wonders of Tulum is the breathtaking Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve. Not only is Sian Ka’an the largest protected area in the Mexican Caribbean, it’s home to some of the richest flora and fauna in Mexico. It’s one of the best places to relax and disconnect from day to day life.

Tulum has also been home to some of the largest parties and festivals in the world, such as Maya Warrior, Zamna, Papaya Playa’s Full Moon Party and Boiler Room.
