Mexico’s zen destination is a lush magical jungle and barefoot connection with the earth.
The eco-conscious secluded oasis has you spell-bound with its white sugar sands, boho vibe, and glistening jade-green waters … leaning heavily on words like “magical” and “bohemian”.
In a few years, Tulum may likely be gone.
This peace jungle is being destroyed by greed, gringos, overzealous developers, drugs, plastic pollution, sunscreen, seaweed, and disco balls.
Since there is no electricity, diesel generators groan 24/7 to run air conditioners that swanky guests demand. The sewer waste has been draining into the water supply and out to the ocean, destroying the coral reef. Boutique hotels started by locals are being pushed out by large developers.
The wildlife is near extinct. Crabs are being run over by cars and Jaguars are being shot to death driving them out of their home.
Follow below to learn how you can be a conscious traveler and help save Tulum.
