Following the COVID-19 pandemic that threw a global curveball, Mexico's charismatic President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, rolled up his sleeves and announced a game-changing project. Fast-forward three years, and the plan to construct an airport in Tulum is about to take off. You heard it right, this picturesque Mexican paradise is all set to welcome travelers by air, and it's not just any airport – it's a mind-boggling fusion of military might, eco-consciousness, and Mayan magic.
Tulum, nestled 120 kilometers south of the ever-popular Cancun, is a place that's seen quite the transformation. With just around 33,000 residents, this charming town has exploded in popularity over the years. It's a hypnotic blend of cenotes (natural sinkholes), meandering underground rivers, powdery beaches, and the dramatic ruins of an ancient Mayan city, perched precariously on a cliff.
