With more than 120 kilometers of Caribbean coast that start from the south of the Cancun International Airport, this tropical paradise has one of the best beaches in the world and with easy access to various entertainment options, nightlife and shopping, so it’s nothing surprising that the stars can not get away from the Mexican Caribbean for long.

If you are one of those who follow celebrities through their social networks and keep up to date with their lives through news and their accounts, surely you have noticed that celebrities love to visit the Riviera Maya, specifically Tulum, the city south of Playa del Carmen.

With over 120 kilometers (74.5 miles) of pristine Caribbean coastline, Tulum has some of the worlds most picture-perfect beaches, access to some of the most cultured nightlife, entertainment and shopping, so it’s no surprise that the stars simply can’t get enough of Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Vogue Italia dubs Tulum “the new Goa” as famous names flock to this beach paradise, names such as Jimmy Choo, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paris Hilton, Cara Delefingne and Sienna Miller, as well as Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Heather Graham, Nina Dobrev, the entire cast of Vanderpump, Richard Gere, Nomi Watts and so many other.

Boho-Chic, Hypset (Hipster + Jet Set) or the Tuluminati are just a few neologisms used to describe the atmosphere that is lived in Tulum on a daily basis. Yoga classes, hipster beards and sun-kissed skin is what makes Tulum a cultured paradise. Many upper class and luxury driven expats from all over the world; Milian, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, dot the Tulum landscape with their artisanal pizzarias, craft beer distilleries and hand-made craft shops.

Bicycles are no stranger on the roads of Tulum where the eco-friendly, eco-conscious pedal along to the numerous outdoor restaurants and bars, organic and vegan grocery shops and to enjoy the natural beauty of this heaven on earth, right here in Mexico.

The lifestyle and the ambiance of Tulum has attracted so much attention now that it has generated a significant real estate boom over the past decade, even though the area still dedicates itself strongly to sustainability and being eco-conscious, this seems to have sparked a new kind of development, a green-conscious, low impact style of development and construction that is available nowhere else in Mexico. In addition to eco-consciousness, the gastronomy as well has taken a turn for the best where you can find the absolute best in organic meals, snacks and a variety of vegan/vegetarian options throughout the area.

The beaches, the climate, the food, the ambiance and the culture has made Tulum the posh city of the Riviera Maya and its friendly approach to the environment now attracts household celebrity names committed to sustainability and development.

To truly experience the best of Tulum here are a few personal suggestions; Hartwood is really the talk of the town as well as among the top visited restaurants among celebrities and locals alike, drinks at Casa Jaguar is also a must and for modern Mexican dishes, Gitano is truly an experience upon itself. For something more unexpected, the Posada Margherita is a scrumptious italian experience with an amazing Carribean Sea view.

No conversation about where to eat in Tulum would be complete without mentioning Hartwood, which changes its menu night after night, each dish is cooked to perfection over low heat and the tickets are priced at a reasonable price ($ 15 to $ 30 dollars) per person.

A drink after dinner at Casa Jaguar is also a must, and the modern Mexican food at Gitano is out of this world. For something more unexpected, head to Posada Margherita and experience an Italian cuisine with a beautiful Caribbean view.
