Boutique Resort Casa de Las Olas : Biosphere Tulum
If you want to get away to a small little resort with only 5 suites right on the Gulf of Mexico, near Tulum and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, swim in caves, eat fish that was caught that morning and take in historical Mexico, then this is the place we recommend. We know the owners, they are great American hosts on premise. Casa de las Olas is magical. It has a Five Star rating on TripAdvisor.
Tulum is a town on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It’s known for its beaches and well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city. The main building is a large stone structure called El Castillo (castle), perched on a rocky cliff above the white sand beach and turquoise sea. Near the ruins is the Parque Nacional Tulum, a coastal area with mangroves and cenotes (natural limestone sinkholes).
Travelers who want to experience Mexico’s untouched beauty should bypass the concrete-high-rise jungle that is Cancun, and beeline down the Yucatan Peninsula coast to Tulum. While it houses plenty of comfortable accommodations and restaurants catering to all budgets, incredibly, Tulum remains largely untouched by overwhelming development.
