Be Tulum is a luxury eco-resort immersed in the jungle on the edge of a soft white-sand beach, located in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in Quintana Roo. The setting is beautiful and romantic, offering stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and magical sunsets.

Located 10km north or Tulum on the Riviera Maya in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Jashita is a luxury boutique beach hotel. I love Jashita for its beautiful setting on Soliman Bay, a private and protected beach, providing a real sense of seclusion and exclusivity, and panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. Best of all, you’re within easy reach of the spectacular Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza.Read more
Hotel Esencia is a timeless classic on the Riviera Maya, located directly between Tulum and Playa del Carmen, within reach of regional wonders that include Mayan ruins, crystal clear cenotes hidden deep in the jungle, and breathtaking beaches.Read more
Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
