Tulum Area


Located on the Riviera Maya 1.5 hours drive south of Cancun, the sleepy little village of Tulum Mexico is quickly finding its way onto the map.

Not so very long ago, Tulum and her fabulous beaches, was a secret paradise shared mostly by word of mouth amongst the international  backpacker crowd making their way through southern Mexico on their way to or from Central America.  Today the backpackers are finding the rustic cabanas that were scattered along the beach, are being upgraded or  replaced by eco friendly resorts full of savvy vacationers looking for a get-a-way experience without giving up all of the conveniences.  In addition to the cabanas of the eco resorts, parts of the area is transforming into more and more upscale residential areas with vacation villas where no creature comfort is left behind. 

Tulum usually refers to the poblado (village) of Tulum located a couple of miles back from the beach, the stretch of beach from the Tulum ruins south to the entrance to the Sian Kaan Biosphere, plus the quiet bays of Soliman and Tankha.

TULUM AREA Vacation Rental Locations - Soliman Bay

Soliman Bay
on the Riviera Maya of Mexico is a gated residential community on a gorgeously private and quiet bay just a short 10 - 15 minute drive north of the Tulum poblado (town). 

When I moved here in 2000 there was no electricity on the bay, the accommodations were very basic and I don't even want to remind myself how inexpensive the lots were by today's value.  Now there is electricity and while there is still some very basic accommodation to be found on the bay, in general things have moved way up the scale.  

The bay is shallow, bordered by soft white sand, and protected by an outer reef so the water is normally calm.  This makes it an ideal environment for kayaking and snorkelling.  There is no commercial activity allowed on the bay.  This restriction, the gated entrance and the owners resolve to respect the environment, ensures a high level of privacy and serenity.   Just you, your family or friends, and a scattering of other vacation villas ringing the shoreline to share paradise with.  If you can't de-pressurize here.  You don't need a vacation, you need a prescription.

TULUM AREA Vacation Rental Locations - Tankah

Tankah Mexico refers to Tankah Bay and the residential communities of Tankah Tres right on main beach part of the bay, and Tankah Paradiso that follows the north shore and continues on to the rocky point to the southern point of Soliman Bay.

Tankah Mexico is a short 10-15 minute drive north of the Tulum poblado (town)

Tankah Bay is another one of those postcard perfect scenes right off the pages of a travel magazine.  Along the shore of the bay, dug into the sand, is a little community of vacation homes, a couple of small restaurants, a dive shop and tranquility calling. 

The backdrop to this postcard setting is a pristine mangrove jungle environment full of birds and tropical plants.  Tranquil Cenote Manatee with its warm, crystal clear, fresh water, cuts into the mangrove and allows access to this special place to those who snorkel or swim.

Like all of the area, there are still some basic accommodations to be found but the areas growing popularity and the resulting escalation of property values is bringing more and more upscale accommodations to the bay and available for you.

TULUM AREA Vacation Rental Locations - Tulum Beach

The Tulum Beach is truly a marvellous stretch of white, powdery, sand and azul, clear, warm, water.   It runs nearly uninterrupted from the Tulum Ruins on the north all the way to down into the Sian Kaan Biosphere in the south.  With only a few breaks of dramatic rock outcrops, this is a gorgeous piece of real estate that beckons you to wander down the shoreline with the ocean lapping at your feet. 

So far efforts to keep the area restricted to low density eco type resorts and simple cabanas, has been fairly successful.  Only one large resort has managed to move in, but pressure is certainly on for others to gain the permits.  With so much of the coast already swallowed up by faceless All Inclusive resorts, it would be a real shame to loose this area to the mega resorts that blanket so much of the worlds beaches and isolate vacationers from the culture surrounding them.

There is not a great deal of commercial activity along the beach area.  A number of the eco resorts have restaurants and bars, and there have been a few low key beach clubs open but otherwise you need to head into the near by Tulum Poblado to find shopping and groceries.

TULUM AREA Vacation Rental Locations - The Poblado (town)

The Tulum Poblado is the small commercial hub of the area.  Here you can find a number of good restaurants, bars, boutiques, dive shops, tour operators, most services, and a mid size grocery store that should provide most everything one would require for a week of cooking at one of the villas or cabanas.

Accommodations in the Tulum Poblado is restricted to fairly basic and inexpensive hostels and small hotels that cater mostly to the international backpacking traveler.
