Tulum…During the last 12 years, this fishing village has turned into “the fastest growing city in Latin America” (USA Today). This place is on a bucket list of every travel blogger, digital nomad, yogi, hipster, etc. Tulum is the choice as a permanent holiday destination for celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Mick Jagger, Kim Kardashian, and many others who chose Tulum as their permanent holiday destination. Tourism, art, and culture are the main components of Tulum’s real estate attractiveness. Let’s talk about each of them to make sure that investing in Tulum is the future of real estate.
The town has three main zones. Tulum downtown (pueblo) has the main public infrastructure and some residential gated communities. The beach zone is full of luxury hotels, boho boutiques, nightclubs, and gourmet restaurants. However, the most visited part of this magic town is the Archaeological Site. This Mayan settlement was surrounded by a wall that was used as a defense from the Spanish conquistadores. The temples of Frescoes, Descending God, and El Castillo have been kept very good. Strolling around a vast territory of the ruins, you can imagine the life of its mysterious inhabitants. And if you are lucky, you can see a reconstruction of some of the indigenous ceremonies. Another reason why this tourist spot is so popular is that it has an astonishing Caribbean Sea view.
Tulum has drawn the attention of the world’s art community for its sustainable hotels’ architecture. Alaya, Casa Malca and Azulik are some of them. Azulik is also a home for the IK Lab gallery founded by a descendant of Peggy Guggenheim Santiago Romni Guggenheim. This art space is not a gallery in a traditional sense. Instead of static walls, you will see undulating concrete surfaces connected in paths and catwalks in the form of leaves. It reminds me of a bird’s nest. Azulik offers to its visitors a walk through concrete and wood labyrinths barefoot. The idea is to show the contrast of cool smooth polished cement and the warm and raw Bejuco wooden floors. All external sounds are muted while the steps reverberate and echo, intensifying the surreal shapes of the labyrinths.
Tulum Art Club, MiNiAtUrE art Gallery, Hernandez gallery, and Pepe Soho Photography are some of the classic art galleries in town.
Art With Me is an event that speaks for itself. It is a five days festival creative focus on environmental sustainability in Tulum.
It’s not a secret that Tulum is Mexico’s electronic music capital. Such festivals as Sound Tulum, Day Zero, Comunité Festival annually attract thousands of devotees. But at the same time, it has kept the national traditions. The body and soul purification at Temazcal, a Mayan bath, is one of them. But if shamanic ceremonies are not your thing, visit La Zebra. Caribbean rhythms, tequila, exquisite Mexican dishes, this is the best authentic cultural experience.
Tulum’s growing popularity
Needless to say that Tulum’s popularity will continue growing. Its real estate market is in an embryo. Thus the same is with the prices. This means that by investing in Tulum, you can get instant profit and skyrocketing asset value.
