With soft white beaches, dazzling turquoise waters, and blissfully located “off the grid” from Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Tulum remains one of the last great undeveloped areas of Mexico’s Caribbean coastline. Smart investors and travelers should consider taking advantage of Tulum’s affordability before the new airport increases international accessibility and awareness. See the following article from International Living for more on this.
There are beautiful beaches all over the world, and I’m fortunate to have seen and written about many of them. If I had to choose my favorite, though, simply for sheer beauty, I’d be hard pressed to select any other than those near Tulum, Mexico.
Here, the water is a dazzling turquoise-blue like something from a neon fairytale. It swells your heart to gaze at it, it’s that perfect. Warm and silky with gentle foamy-white waves that roll against the softest, whitest sands, this is the Caribbean of travel posters. It’s a picture to lose yourself in.
To up the ante, here and there a rocky outcropping appears…and flawless palm trees stand glimmering and reaching for the sun. Surprisingly, no matter how hot or intense that sun, you won’t burn your feet. The sand here isn’t made of silica, like most beaches, but is instead tiny fossils of microscopic plankton. It’s silky soft, too. If not for its lack of fragrance, you’d swear this sand was baby powder.
