Luum Hideaway is located in an exclusive development in Aldea Zama in Tulum on the glorious Yucatan Peninsula. You do not have to venture far to realise why this area is one of Mexico’s culinary wonders. You will find everything from charming little cafes to world-class eateries as well as plenty of fresh fish and a wonderful array of bars. The town enjoys a new age yoga vibe with many yoga studios, gyms and a wonderful spa. You can walk to either the beach or town centre from the apartment or take a short drive or cycle along the paved bike path. In keeping with Tulum’s eco-conscious nature, you will see ethically produced and handcrafted goods when shopping including floaty kaftans, handwoven bags and leather sandles. The boutiques are usually open until 10pm.
Tulum’s world-renowned archeological site, the ancient Mayan ruins, is just 10 minutes drive on the northern end of the beach. In their time, they served as a point of defence against invaders from the land and sea. It is the only walled city that the Maya built and the only one by the edge of the Caribbean. When the Spanish first found the site in 1518, they recorded that it was as large as Seville. The Castle, a handsome pyramid perched on the edge of a cliff above the snow-white beach, aptly called Paradise Beach, offers spectacular views of the ancient city and the coastline. Tulum is also famous for its cenotes, underground rivers and caverns where visitors can swim and explore. These gorgeous sinkholes with rugged walls and crystal clear water are perfect for refreshing dips on hot days, away from the beach crowds. Visitors are very attracted by the sea turtles. From May to October, they can be seen on the beaches where they come to lay their eggs after nightfall. You can visit Akumal to swim up close with the turtles. It is an amazing experience. The nightlife in Tulum is amazing with fantastic gastronomy with many vegan and vegetarian options, exotic cocktail bars, full moon parties and popular Cuban bars.
The massive Reserva de la Biosfera Sian Ka’an is incredible, the largest protected area on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. It is home to endangered creatures and boasts some of the Yucatan’s most sublime landscapes. It is just south of Tulum. The name Sian Ka’an – Yucatec May means ‘where the sky is born’ and perfectly captures the magnificence of the 1.3 million acre reserve. It is home to spider monkeys, crocodiles, jaguars, pumas, tapirs, howler monkeys, sea turtles, giant land crabs, manatees, dolphins, some 400 fish species and more than 330 bird species. You can board boats or 4x4’s to explore the jungle, mangroves and lagoons.
Tulum is 2 hours from one of the New & Wonders of the World, Chichen-Itza, another very worthy trip.
