The Perfect Eco-Vacation: Tulum, Mexico







A recent trip to Tulum, Mexico convinced me that there is indeed Heaven on Earth. Aside from the gorgeous beaches lined with palm trees, Tulum also possesses significant green credentials. The main road in Tulum features a string of eclectic cabana-style hotels, restaurants and yoga centers (such as Maya Tulum) along the main road, some of which are powered by small wind turbines and solar panels. My own rustic-style hotel, La Posada del Sol, was one of these, and offered organic body care products in its guest rooms. Out of several vegetarian-friendly restaurants I found, one that blew me away was Restauraure, a vegan restaurant nestled among the palm trees, where the food was made with such fresh, local ingredients you could taste the love in it. The young owners used local materials for the tables and chairs, renewable energy, and are hoping to help start an organic market next door. The connection to nature is apparent in Tulum and is reflected in the remarkable ruins and artwork of the Mayans. An incredibly beautiful, inspiring place, full of friendly people, Tulum is perfect for a rejuvenating retreat.
