With more than 200,000 tourists a year, Tulum has lost its “vibe” and become what one feared most: an annex of Cancún with its crowded beaches. That’s why loyal to her belief in eco-conscious hospitality, Sofia Lynch, co-owner of Habitas de Bacalar, decided to pitch its tents on the edge of a unique lagoon, just two-hour drive noth of Tulum, known as “the lake of seven colours”. As turquoise as possible, this new luxury location offers a soothing calm that the waves cannot claim. A calm that matches the one of this place, which advocates a full deconnection from the rest of the world, eco-conscious consumption, local cooking techniques and ingredients and sunset yoga classes. A colorful, bohemian setting that shows a side of Mexico that one thought was long gone, a stone’s throw from Belize.
