Paradise is that concept that from a spiritual perspective evokes a place of indescribable beauty in which we aspire to live in peace, happiness, and well-being are the ultimate goals for the afterlife. To talk about the beauty of Tulum is almost impossible without referring to “paradise”. Regardless of beliefs, most of us have the same ideological conception about heaven or paradise and the possibility of entering it. What you may not know is that María del Mar Hotel Boutique is located very close to what the Mayans wisely named “the entrance to heaven” and that is known today as the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.

The connection of Tulum and nature of which we have already spoken to you finds its maximum expression in this impressive piece of heaven located just 15 minutes away from María del Mar.
The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is a protected area that remains practically intact. Here you will not find malls, houses… not even streets! In Sian Ka’an nature lives in all its splendor and you can see different ecosystems and hundreds of species of flora and fauna, making it a great place for sustainable ecotourism.

This place was declared a “Natural World Heritage Site” by UNESCO in 1987 and the efforts to protect it have yielded results, that is why today it is possible to visit this place and enjoy it responsibly.

Why should not miss it when visiting Tulum? The same name says it all: It is truly the “entrance to heaven” and we dare to say that once here you’ll never want to leave. Sian Ka’an is home for diverse marine environments coexisting in harmony; From the sandy beaches to mangroves, its extensive wetlands and the reef barrier which is part of the second longest reef in the world, the variety of ecosystems host thousands make this place something you need to see at least once in your life. As we mentioned before, the tranquility of being in one of the most pristine and untouched places in the world is something worth experiencing, lacking only of the comfort and amenities that can only be found at the Maria del Mar facilities. 😉
