TAO Resort amenities include the onsite holistic TAO Wellness Center offering programs in fitness, inner peace, personal development, creative arts and lifelong learning classes. At the Tao Wellness Center you can engage in wellness-focused programs and a host of holistic services including:
• two salt-water lap pools
• a fitness center
• a healthy snack bar
• an eco-boutique

As a guest, you will have access to a private homeowner’s beach club on a pristine beach offering shaded loungers, drinks, snacks and towels.
You can play a round of golf (at a significant discount) on the surrounding world-class 27-hole Robert Trent Jones II championship golf course, recently rated 3rd best in the country, with a 100,000 square foot clubhouse.
Regularly scheduled shuttles are available to transport you around the resort and to the beach.
You can enjoy the beach facilities, the water park and slides, and a couple of evening shows. The beach was great and has a very safe lagoon. You can just 'hang-out' without getting an 'all-inclusive wristband' but be sure to bring your own beach towel if you don't do the all inclusive as the Bahia only provides towels to wristband holders.
Lugar en el Sol at TAO is a unique destination for relaxation, healing, creative and spiritual inspiration where you can be complete without leaving the resort. Perfect for family getaways or a romantic retreat for couples.
It could also serve as your base camp for experiencing an abundance of eco and jungle adventures, exploring ancient sites, underground caves and rivers, diving at the world’s second longest barrier reef or discovering a series of amazing beaches, lined with authentic Mexican or trendy new restaurants, shops and galleries.

About Fran Cornelius
For most of my life, I have enjoyed traveling and immersing myself the cultures of my host countries. Mexico offers a rich cultural experience with something for everyone.
I am a long time fan of the Tulum area. I am certain that after staying at Lugar en el Sol, you will become a fan too!

What makes this condo unique
This region features an array of attractions ranging from historic ruins and sacred sites, white sand, palm tree lined beaches, lagoons and sacred cenotes, and just offshore is the world's second largest reef.
Riviera Maya is home to centuries old authentic towns and villages, modern architectural complexes, low rise hotels, marinas, sports facilities and gourmet or local restaurants.
At the southern end you'll find the biosphere reserve, Sian Ka'an, a habitat noted for the richness of its flora and fauna.
Riviera Maya has several small towns along its coastline, all of them located no more than 1.5 miles from the wonderful turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean.
