Amazing Sights at Tulum and Sian Kaan: Tulum, (about 8 miles from Maya Jardin) is the combination of a beach coastline, archaeological zone and shopping area. If you want a little taste of the Mayan history and a wonderful view, Tulum is your place.
Shops line the main street with colorful restaurants and excellent Mexican food, Italian, and seafood.
The Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve has incredible beaches, pristine mangrove estuaries, and you can drive all the way to the little fishing village of Punta Allen
Coba has fewer tourists and 2 new cenotes: The ancient Mayan ruins and village of Coba are located about a 40 minute drive west of Maya Jardin. Coba was the capital of the largest Late Classic empire in the Northern Lowlands. Coba is a mammoth ruined city , with one of the tallest pyramids in Mexico. This archaeological site sits amid 5 small, shallow lakes and is very
impressive. Coba is known for its great length of occupation. The earliest stele dates to a.d. 623 and Coba was occupied until the late Postclassic times, around the 14th century.
There are two unspoiled cenotes 5 miles away that have just been opened to the public. The water is pure and refreshing with stalactites and even a diving platform.
Jeff and Sherry lived in Mexico for 3 years while they built Maya Jardin and Playa Belleza. They now reside in Washington state and yes, Chloe (the lab) and Sony (the cat) are enjoying a slightly cooler climate.
We love the beauty of the water in the Mexican Caribbean. We bought our two properties and built the villas to our tastes. We lived here and ran a B&B at Maya Jardin and lived upstairs while we built Playa Belleza. The experiences we had while living in Mexico were priceless.
