Tulum in perspective

Often times, when you make the decision to invest in a property from far away, it’s difficult to get a feel for the layout and size of a city and what the most interesting parts are, etc. In this latest post we will give a concise description of Tulum that will help you to understand it in a more accurately.

For starters, it’s important to know what Tulum is. It’s a costal city in the state of Quintana Roo and is broadly divided into three parts: the archeological site, the hotel area and the town.

The archeological site is located at the 230 km marker on the Chetumal—Cancun Federal Highway, around 10 minutes from the centre by car. There we can find the ruins of what was once part of the ancient Mayan city Zamá, nestled by the Caribbean shore.

In what is referred to as the “town”, we find the heart of Tulum, which is located on the very same Chetumal—Cancun Federal Highway and for organization’s sake is divided into 15 areas.

But obviously the big question is: Where are the different options that I’m looking at for my investment located? Currently the most sought after areas are those with direct access to the sea such as Aldea Zamá: an international cutting-edge real estate development that is both for living and commercialization; the hotel area: where we find the best boutique hotels in the Riviera Maya, with restaurants that offer world-class gourmet gastronomy (an area in which there are no lots, nor living units for sale); and the areas that are next to Kukulcán Avenue, will soon have access to the coastline (Area 8 — known as La Veleta-; Area 9). Currently, the only avenue that goes down to the beach —Cobá Avenue — beautiful with the Aldea Zamá lots and Tulum National Park, which is why all the lots and projects next to Kukulkán Avenue have the highest guaranteed profit.

In summary, with the constant development in the city, the demographic density of Tulum keeps going up and the town planning continues to take make new, very well-planned roads, where sustainable development is seen as a priority, as well as taking care of the native Mayan community, and the life-style that is founded on the values of cooperation and great respect for the natural surroundings.
