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.

every detail was perfect. A natural paradise made even more lovely by the architecture and minimally chic home decor. I am a designer and these kinds of details do not go unnoticed. The staff was so warm and friendly. They were a joy to get to know and seemed happy to be doing what they do and doing it well. The food...oh the food was over the top amazing. A feast of meats, sauces, tropical fruit, veggies, seafood, and soups. Dinner served on a breezy patio with full service and a perfect ambiance. Some of our group landed in nearby hammocks after meals. This trip exceeded even my high expectations. We rented out 2 houses right next to each other and our group of 12 was amazed.
Staff was outstanding, as were the meals. The house was really enjoyable; however, the 20mph winds coupled with a couple of days of heavy rains blew water under the door weatherstripping making the floors extremely slippery and dangerous. Temperatures were in mid 80's and combined with the winds and air conditioning made for comfortable days. With rented cars we drove to the Tulum ruins and adjourned to a nice beachfront restaurant. Then on to Gran Cenote. Very enjoyable. The gravel road was horrible and made travel from the house very difficult - at least 30 minutes each way to the closest civilization. We were told 15 minutes. If the beaches by our houses were nice we could have been happy staying put. Both were misrepresented to us. We were told "Pristine beaches." Hardly. They tried to keep them clean - it wasn't possible.
The most relaxing vacation I have had in a long time. The staff was amazing! Diego never missed a beat. The house was a true jungle paradise. I can't wait to come back!
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...
