Why is everyone so obsessed with Tulum? On the southern end of Riviera Maya lies the incredible town of Tulum. This magical place is a paradise for everyone. I love places in touch with nature, the sea and peace.. where you can lay in a hammock at night watching starry skies, hearing the sound of the ocean and breathing the salty air.

In Tulum; you will find ecological hotels, bohemian bars, local taco trucks and artists. Travelers and people who visit are not seeking to change to local customs.. Each person in Tulum follows their own path and blend themselves creating an interesting atmosphere!
