Finding a Tulum Beach Hotel Means Going Green!

Everywhere you turn nowadays , a celebrity or something is telling you to definitely Go Green!  A long time ago , going green meant with envy, but these days people are getting hip to the fact the environment is in turmoil and it ’s on us to help ensure it is a better place.

Now, I’m no Greenpeace Campaigner , but I do my part .  I recycle.  I turn off lights.  I even decided to buy those dreadful spiral light bulbs for lamps in my domicile .  With some people , these small life adjustments are sufficient .  For other people who want to do more, one can find surprisingly many things they could do to reduce their carbon trace in the world.

Ever think about going green on your vacation?  Recently , I visited Tulum, a tiny seaside town about ninety minutes south of Cancun.  While the jungle makes up greater than 90 % of the location , it’s not exactly the green I’m talking about.  For years, Tulum has been the host to a increasing number of eco-friendly resorts.  These Tulum hotels manage virtually completely on wind and solar power although many do possess gas or diesel driven back-up generators just in case.  Many eco resorts do use wind and solar to make the majority of their power needs.

South of Playa del Carmen the Flats Fishing is World Class

Upon arriving on the Boca Paila Fishing Lodge beyond the long row of beachfront Tulum Hotels without delay at 7:30 am, we noticed the place was already jumping .  Visitors were   finishing up breakfast and the guides were getting the last of their equipment in the boats while being proficiently directed by  Chico, the general manager and the primary host of the property.  Undoubtedly this was not the opening occasion these guys had done  this, in fact Boca Paila has been around since the late 1960s.  To say these guys are pioneers of fishing in this area is  an understatement , they were the only game in town long ago and it had been a a couple of hour drive from Tulum, not 20 to 30 minutes as  it is now.

We came for the fishing and they had been equipped on behalf of us.  Subsequent to brief introductions with Chico, he informed us that our boat and  guide Alfonso had been by now waiting on the pier in favor of us.  A quick assessment of our tackle and off we went.  Chico made certain we  also had a variety of the best flies and jigs for the locale and season before we departed and handed those to our guide Alfonso  following he personally escorted us to the boat.
