Where to shop, eat, and stay in the most fashionable of Mexican cities
First-time visitors to Tulum, Mexico, can?t quite believe the place is only an hour away from the spring-break revelers in Cancun. Here, the relaxed beaches, rough luxe hotels, and gourmand-approved restaurants draw the fashion cognoscenti, including the likes of Christy Turlington, Jason Wu, andLinda Fargo. Don?t come expecting the Four Seasons; Tulum has its own particular brand of sleepy glamour, the kind you get not from skyscrapers or chandeliers but from environmental beauty?it?s in the cenotes (swimmable natural sinkholes), the Sian Ka?an nature reserve, and the Mayan ruins. Stick to these places to eat, shop, and stay, for a nice complement to the real reason you?re here.
