In the last 12 months of media coverage for Mexico, many people would believe that Mexico as a country is a risky place to visit due to recent H1N1 (Swine Flu Virus) and stories of drug abductions and gunfire targeting mainly several US border cities. Unfortunately, regional events had a negative impact on the local tourist economy, which was half a country away on the Yucatan Peninsula.
A fair (or unfair) comparison could be made if LA LAts broke out after Rodney King's decision in the US in 1991, if people from all over the world were impressed, “don't go to the United States, there is violence and looting in the streets and the place burns! "I certainly wouldn't have visited South Central Los Angeles that week, but it wouldn't cancel my trip to San Diego."
As a lifetime resident in Colorado, who has lived for nearly 2 years on the Yucatan Peninsula south of Cancun, I can tell you that this is a great place to live and visit. I have never felt "dangerous" to myself, my family members or friends who have visited on many occasions. As far as influenza is concerned, the virus does not perform well in warmer climates, and at average temperatures in the mid-1980s it is a much safer place where most of the north is located.
Why should you visit this amazing area? The biggest reason is that it's a really beautiful and magical place that is changing fast. We can only hope that much of what we love in this place will stay, because the coming years will bring the inevitable changes that paradise will almost always find. It is a bit sad to have such places shared with the knowledge that sharing will change the place. So forgive me the beautiful places of the world for sharing a little place called Paradise, Tulum.
For those of you who have been to Tulum, Mexico, just mentioning the place will surely evoke delicious memories of lazy beach days and the colorful shades of turquoise blue water. Tulum's beaches and warm clear blue waters are truly noble, but there is much more to this place than just breathtaking beauty.
Tulum is a boarding school for kite and cabin resorts “Eco Chic” such as Ocho Tulum, Playa Azul and OM Tulum, small Mayan and Mexican Yucatan hotels and a spa; Try the Blue Tulum Hotel and Spa for complete luxury with the highest standards. Tulum is a diving adventure on the Caribbean reefs and underground, exploring the world's largest underground river system, which gathers in igneous springs known as cenotes. Tulum are flats with salt water and deep-sea fishing, kayak lagoons and growing Yoga Mecca; it is mostly green and natural with 1.3 million acres of Sian Ka protected and low impact protected wetlands.
It is an international melting pot where you can hear six languages on any given day only when you walk down the street. Tulum also has a growing well-deserved reputation for a range of excellent restaurants serving fine local and international tariffs in paradise. You will find all kinds of traditional Mayan and Mexican dining options, but you will also find plenty of Italian, French, German, Thai, sushi and more.
Tulum is a short drive to all the other things that make a Yucatan holiday so enjoyable and comfortable, though perhaps not as adventurous as golf, first-class shopping and nightclubs, just 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen.
So yes, Tulum is a unique and great way to experience this adventure holiday. It has a little everything you want on a tropical vacation. For me it is an adventure and getting into it and for others it will never leave the beach or day or week of shopping or golfing.
What people need to know is that Tulum and the rest of Yucatan are a great holiday destination that is safe for both adventurous and cruel sun seekers. See you in Tulum!
