Rocky coastlines offer with white-sand beaches, spectacular crystal-clear swimming and diving pools, tropical jungles, and remnants of Mayan temples. Together with the Mayan ruins of Tulum, the beaches are the crown jewels of Tulum. The area between Playa del Carmen and Tulum is a hotbed of resort and residential construction among the beaches and jungle. This area is among the most desired resort, residential, and tourist areas in the world.
Tulum’s expat community is small, estimated at around 2,000 expats. It’s a great walking and cycling town. You’ll love life in Tulum if you love hot weather, are adventurous, physically active, enjoy outdoor activities—especially swimming, snorkeling, and scuba-diving—and look forward to assimilating and enjoying the cultural differences Mexico offers.
