Kan Xuk resort Tulum in the Sian Ka'an BiosphereNestled on the Sian Ka’an biosphere coastline, a UNESCO World Heritage site on the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, KanXuk is tucked away from trodden touristic attractions. Approximately 35 km from the beach town of Tulum, its remoteness is central to its charm. The property is located on latitude 19.861523 and longitude -87.439767

Privacy and exclusivity with a tropical backdrop. Does anyone out there relate to 19.861523 and -87.439767? Or the log of the sin of a 47 degree angle? Didn't think so. Not to worry. Not important good people. What is important is that this all-inclusive resort just south of Tulum in the Riviera Maya has luxury rooms (so you have pristine settings with modern comforts) and all food, beverage and house premium liquor included.
For added privacy, KanXuk can also be reserved exclusively for you and your party. Your own private holiday.

In the language of the Mayan peoples who inhabit this region, Sian Ka'an may mean Origin of the Sky or don't take my corn.
Capatalize one letter and the word changes meaning. Confusing.
Located on the east coast of the Yucatán peninsula, this biosphere reserve contains tropical forests, mangroves and marshes, as well as a large marine section intersected by a barrier reef.
Provides a habitat for a remarkably rich flora and a fauna comprising more than 300 species of birds (so if driving down be sure to carry enough windshield washer fluid), as well as a large number of the region's characteristic terrestrial vertebrates, which cohabit in the diverse environment formed by its complex hydrological system.

The diversity of life in Sian Ka'an is awesome.
The tropical forests are home to charismatic mammals such as Jaguar, monkey, Puma, Ocelot and Central American Tapir (A tapir is a large, herbivorous mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile snout. Kind of a pig with a trunk) They are herb eaters so won't bother you.
The property also provides habitat for a large number of resident and migratory bird species.
There is a great diversity of marine life, including the West Indian Manatee, four species of nesting marine turtles and hundreds of fish species.
About a third of the property is comprised of highly diverse and productive mangrove communities, of vital importance to fisheries in the broader region.
Hundreds of forested islands, locally known as Petenes, emerge from the flooded marshes, some reaching over a kilometre in diameter.

in the Sian Ka'an BiosphereThe Riviera Maya resort offers both luxury rooms and larger beach bungalows.

The grounds at KanXuk all-inclusive resort have a unique identity and eco-influence.
With more than 200 meters of beachfront, the vast property awakes the senses, allowing guests to completely surrender to the beauty of the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve around them.
Incredibly remote but accessible by car, boat, starship, and helicopter, the property offers five luxury rooms in the Main Villa, three ocean bungalows and one premium bungalow with a private garden. Each offers elegant amenities in balance with the breathtaking landscapes and shared spaces outside which help to inspire KanXuk’s restorative spirit of sustainability. Whether guests want to relax with others or seek out solitude, it’s easy to find the perfect spot to settle into and enjoy.

All kinds of herbs abound in the biosphere surrounding Kan Xuk.
Regarding one of them, some local Mayans claim this herb can cure coughing, itching, burning, athelete's foot, and high cholesterol.
27 people were given this herb while 27 were given a placebo.
Some felt better while some did not.
Tests would have been more conclusive if the Mayans kept track of who got what.
One thing is certain. Your experience here in Kan Xuk in Tulum will please! Enchant! Regenerate the spirit
Although there are no known side-effects you may become warm, cold, hot, or lukewarm.

TulumMayans claim other herbs growing in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere can make someone invisible.
As evidence they show how the famous Hollywood actor Ernie Kovaks is invislbe in this photo on the left.

But some claim he never ever came down to the Mayan ruins.
As he's been deceased for a while, figures he no longer travels anywhere anymore.

George Clooney and his lady friend took his private jet down to Los Cabos but as far as we know never made it down to Tulum.
Drew Barrymore has been to Tulum but never tried this herb as far as we know.
All those who come to Tulum love the warm transparent turquoise waters.
But proof of invisibility is yet inconclusive.
So be reluctant to purchase this herb or book Kan Xuk with anyone but us.
some of the flowers growing near the Kan Xuk Tulum in the Biosphere Sian Kaan:
Chechem negro (Metopium brownei) nice to look it but fades in flower pots on your Brooklyn windowsill, Chicozapote (Manilkara zapota) not recommended for Mother's Day flowers get roses instead (best take mom down to the Kan Xuk Tulum and make her day), Chaca o palo mulato cousin of this is carniverous, palo chaca (Bursera simaruba) but none on the Kan Xuk Tulum grounds, Dzalam (Lysiloma latisiliquum), (Nectandra spp.), Menopausis Hilary (liarmaximus), Nance (Byrsonima bucidaefolia), (Caesalpinia gaumeri), Habin (Piscidia piscipula), Guayabillo (Piscidium sartorianum), Ya'xnik (Vitex gaumeri), Despeinada (Beaucarnea ameliae), Palma kuka (Pseudophoenix sargentii), Bigus Dickus (Pilato's friend), Pucte (Bucida buceras), Tinte (Haematoxilon campechianum)

No bows and arrows allowed in the Biosphere near Kan Xuk Tulum.
In the language of the Mayan peoples who inhabit this place, Sian Ka'an means Origin of the Sky.
When this bird let one go and it landed in the eye of the poor Mayan chief.
Located on the east coast of the peninsula, this biosphere reserve next to Kan Xuk contains tropical forests, mangroves and marshes, a few empty soda bottles, as well as a large marine section intersected by a barrier reef.
It provides a habitat for a remarkably rich flora and a fauna comprising more than 300 species of birds, as well as a large number of the region's characteristic terrestrial vertebrates, which cohabit in the diverse environment formed by its complex hydrological system.
The birds are great but if your driving remember to load up on windshield washer fluid.
En la lengua de los mayas que poblaban antaño la región, Sian Ka’an significa “origen del cielo”. Situada en la costa oriental de la península de Yucatán, esta reserva de biosfera abarca bosques tropicales, manglares, lodo, mosquitos, marismas y una vasta zona marina atravesada por un arrecife de barrera. Alberga una flora de gran riqueza y su fauna comprende más de 300 especies de pájaros y un gran número de vertebrados terrestres característicos de la región, que coexisten en el medio diversificado resultante del complejo sistema hidrológico del sitio.
In 2013 the Biosphere became a World Hertige property. The Kan Xuk Tulum is a glorious property for your Tulum lodgings.

Besides the Biosphere there is Tulum itself.
The Tulum archeological site perched upon the hill overlooking the sea will be found on the main highway as you head south to Tulum.
The can be accessed by walking, bicycle or taking a cab. Once you arrive to the ruins, the entrance fee is minimal, about 5USD per person not like the Biosphere. You can explore the ruins on your own, hire a certified guide or a kid looking to make a fast buck but knows nothing, and head down to the beach below to cool off.
If accessing the ruins from the main road, they do have a flea market area for souvenirs and snacks.

Tulum the town is like any town, there will be banks, pharmacies and other useful things like convenience stores.
No Macy's or Bloomingdales or Walmarts.
The Tulum bazaar has beautiful, bright-colored pottery to pack carefully so it won't break wrapped in your clothes or something.
In the bazaar are people in silly costumes wanting money for a photo of the Mayan Napoleon with a bird on his head and people with iguana also wanting money for photos.
Save money. You can take a photo with me for free.
And save by booking Kan Xuk Tulum with me.
Imagine an explorers’ wonder when they first set eyes on the great walled cities of the Mayans so many centuries ago.
They said que chido.
Los Mayans replied bash kabalik.
No one understood what the other was saying.
A remote civilization amidst the lush palm trees and white-sand shores, all but hidden from the vast world around it.
Today, there are few places that can offer that same promise of privacy and seclusion—the quiet elegance of a paradise perfectly at one with the immeasurable beauty of the land it inhabits.
Can you have that wonder now? Yes you can! Here in Kan Xuk Tulum beachfront all-inclusive resort.
