Real Estate in Tulum
Tulum is small town with a big heart that attracts its share of travelers. As the site of a pre-Columbian walled Maya city, it once served as a major port for Coba. Now, it is a tourist haven in the heart of Mexico’s Riviera Maya. It is also a rapidly developing choice with expats.
Tulum, which is in the state of Quintana Roo, stands on a bluff facing east toward the Caribbean Sea. The name, Tulúm, is the Mayan word for wall. People wanting to escape from traditional loud city distractions are the people that make their way to Tulum.
The exquisite town site sits along some of the most unspoiled beaches the Riviera has to offer. The town is still small, fresh and full of vibrant life with ancient Maya traditions and modern necessities.
It is quickly becoming a top choice for those looking for investment and retirement properties. To see available real estate in Tulum, check out our MLS site.
Not far from the town center are the popular ruins, situated on a 12-meter (39 foot) tall cliff overlooking the sea. It is one of the last known cities to be built and inhabited by the Maya people between the 13th and 15th centuries.
Tulum continues to be a developing town along the Mexican Caribbean. With a short drive from Cancun and an even shorter drive from Playa del Carmen, Tulum has become a popular Maya tourist site.
