TULUM, MEXICO (LOCALISM IS THE GOAL)If you know me, you will know that my preferred mode of vacation is one where there is the opportunity to immerse myself in Nature, ( Earth, Water, and Sky). Finding peace within our chaotic lives and creating the ideal flow, symmetry, and balance, are the hallmarks of the sanctuary. While my work as an Interior Designer is to provide sanctuary for the homes we work on, so of course, a vacation sanctions similar goals.

Just looking at downtown Cancun from the sky as we flew over and into the airport, stressed me out. Yes, its a beautiful piece of land surrounded by amazing crystal clear ocean water and reefs and it is very easy to get to, but I am not a fan of densely populated shores with CONDOS AND SKYSCRAPER resorts. I prefer to visit real places and meet real people.

Once in Tulum, you will find yourself traveling along a narrow two lane road parallel to the beach with the resorts, and businesses on the ocean side, and the jungle on the other. Kissed by the Carribean sun and surrounded by the ice blue ocean, this is the perfect getaway that you must visit before it disappears.
You will see this is a town of environmental beauty as you plan to spend time on a glorious beach or boating on the crystal clear Ocean, visiting the wonderful "Cenotes" for swimming (sinkholes in the ground where you can swim in pristine water) and the most anticipated, a day visit to Sian Ka'an for a ride on nature's sleepy river of fresh water. You can also have the most wonderful meals if you choose correctly.

What to Do
Wonderful food, drinks and the music was amazing!
The perfect afternoon treat! A Massage and Mayan Clay body treatment, followed by a dip in the ocean to rinse off!
We hired a local Shaman to accompany us on our tour and swim in the Kian Ka'an preserve. Meeting and spending the day with him was a special part of our trip. This amazing environmental setting is owned by an international group of preservation organizations.
