Regional Information - The Reserve
Sian Kaan is translated from Mayan as where the sky is born.
The Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve was established in 1986 by presidential decree, and in 1987 the reserve was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sian Kaan faces the greatest challenge of conservation: to find a way to integrate human activities without compromising other forms of life contained within its boundaries.
Sian Kaan is approximately 1.3 million acres in size and spans 120 kilometres from north to south (comprising almost one third of the Caribbean coast of Mexico). In 1994, an area of over 200,000 acres to the south of the Reserve was named a Protected Area of Flora and Fauna of Uaymil, increasing the continuous area of protected land.
The reserve contains three large core zones where human activity is limited by permission to scientific research. Low-impact human activities and sustainable development occur in the area of the reserve known as the buffer zone. The human population is estimated at 2,000 inhabitants, the majority of which are located in the coastal regions, especially in the fishing villages of Punta Allen and Punta Herrero. Approximately one percent of the land within the reserve is privately owned.
The northernmost section of Sian Kaan (where Casa Nalum is) contains what is thought to be an ancient trade route through lagoons with ruins and mangrove channels between the cities of Tulum and Muyil.
Please note that staff at Casa Nalum will attentively clean 100 yards directly in front of the villa. Also the team cleans a further 300 yards in each direction from plastic bottles or any other inorganic material - not from organic material such as sea grass or drift wood that are part of nature.
Our family had a wonderful time at Casa Nalum!!! The home, the staff and every element of our stay was perfect. The property is even more beautiful than the pictures. The chef, Mercedes, was remarkable! The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. While the house is near Tulum and there are many activities nearby, we left the property only once during our stay ( cancelling dinner reservations and activities after only two days at the house). The villa managers and entire staff were a pleasure and so helpful. The most relaxing vacation we've ever taken. We will definitely return!
Vacances formidables avec un personnel compétent très attentionné dans une maison quasi parfaites. La route abominable pour rejoindre la maison ne pousse pas aux sorties nocturnes mais cela devient un avantage tant l'endroit est féerique. La piscine indigne de la maison et la végétation trop dense qui interdit de voir la mer du salon absolument magique sont les seuls freins à un note d'appréciation maximale...

this was such a wonderful experience. the villa was gorgeous and the locations was breathtaking! The staff was out of this world great and the food AMAZING!! The staff was more than hospitable and so gracious and accommodating. WE all felt this felt more like a vacation than work. Cannot wait to return to relax on vacation some day
Truly enjoyed it... The people at the house were fantastic, the location was excellent, the ameneties were first class and even the weather cooperated. The only thing we missed was a hot tub, but Emily was very up front that the place wouldn't have one.
This was my second trip to Casa Nalum. If you are looking for a beautiful, open-air villa with a wonderful staff and incredibly private beach then this is IT. Casa Nulum is set on probably the lovliest beach I have ever seen, and it's literally all yours when you stay there. The views are magnificent, the food is wonderful, and the service is sublime.
