I fell in love with the Riviera Maya in the 80s while traveling to Mexico. For years I dreamed that one day I would find myself living here somewhere near the water. It seems like only yesterday that I was packing my bags and heading to Cancun to attend an International Conference on Living in Real Estate Investments Abroad. It was on that trip, in 2013, that I bought my first investment property in Tulum. The condo delivered a year later and I moved in. That decision changed the course of my life forever and I couldn't be happier.

I am from San Antonio, Texas and lived 25 years in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have spent much of my life moving back and forth across the border. I love Mexico, the culture, the language, the people and I love living in Tulum. I live and work full time here and it feels like home. Life is simple and the pace is slow, people are happy and nobody is in a hurry for anything.

This past weekend I kept it simple and spent time with good friends in Tankah Bay, we laughed, ate, drank, walked, kayaked out to the reef and got massages on the beach. It was a perfect weekend, it makes me look forward to the next one.

If you are considering Tulum as a place to invest, then you are considering one of the main world destinations of interest for international travelers, retirees and investors.

Whatever your plan, it's important to understand why people come to Tulum. This is not your average small town, Tulum is surrounded by natural wonders, north of the city on a cliff. Over the water are the ruins of Tulum, built in the 2000th century, and to the south is the Sian Ka'an Biosphere, with more than XNUMX square miles of UNESCO-protected coastline, rainforests, mangroves, and salt marshes. Inside, there is Coba, an important Mayan settlement that dates back to the first century. 

In front of Tulum is the second largest coral reef in the world. Tulum sits at the top of one of the largest underground river systems in the world. All this mixed with white sand beaches and lush jungles that make Tulum the best destination on everyone's bucket list.

People from all over the world are drawn to Tulum. There is an open mind here that blends easily with the Mayan culture. With all the diversity comes exquisite food, great music, fashion, incredible art, and sports of all kinds. Once known as a winter wonderland for snowbirds, Tulum is becoming a year-round destination with year-round art, music, wellness, yoga, food and wine festivals. It attracts not only locals, but North Americans and Canadians, Central Americans and South Americans and Europeans who are arriving all year round. If you pay close attention, you will hear the different languages ​​spoken throughout the city.

Every week I will share different experiences and more information on how to live and invest as a foreigner in Mexico. Next week I will give an overview of the growth we are experiencing here and a breakdown of the different areas of Tulum.
