Since Tulum real estate is a booming market, there are currently a growing number of excellent options for a variety of property types. The following is a brief overview of some of the main location styles and options for Tulum homes for sale and Tulum condos for sale.
Tulum’s town center is quaint and offers a walk-everywhere lifestyle. There are restaurants, cafes, local art and craft shops, banks and a supermarket, all within a comfortable walk of just about everywhere in the town center. The style of the town blends modern trendy cafes with traditional thatched-roofed huts of the local Mayan people and an ecologically-focused lifestyle. The people are very relaxed and friendly. The beach is about a 10 minute bike ride away; bikes are an important part of the community’s culture.
A variety of homes and condos are available in Tulum’s town center at good prices.
New Beachfront Communities
While there are no residential communities going in directly on the beachfront, and development is currently very limited, Tulum’s boom is bringing a number of very nice residential communities to the area between the town center and the beachfront. Besides being a walk away from both the town center and the beachfront, there is a new village-center area going in with trendy shops and cafes and there are plans for an upscale resort complex with further shopping and dining option along a picturesque promenade.
These are usually back from the beach, but offer luxury homes in an eco-friendly context that allows residents to live very comfortably with all modern conveniences while taking care of their environmental surroundings and living in close contact with nature. There are several homes and one complete development that is completely sustainable.
Especially the nearby village of Akumal offers a similar balance of nature, ecology and local tradition, with the difference that it is located directly on the beachfront. Basic services are available (a grocery store, several restaurants) and there are local handicraft shops. The village is full of trees and original vegetation, and is very natural. Homes and condos are available directly overlooking the sand of the beach.
Since Tulum and the surrounding area is very small with a fairly low population density, it’s easy enough for buyers to choose some home and condo options in a variety of locations and plan to view each when they arrive proceed to the next step of their purchasing process.
