We recently visited Tulum for our family vacation. We have two kids of ages 4 and 1, so we were looking for a place comfortable enough for the kids and what implies to travel with them. We were looking for a home away from home, so we looked at apartments, did not want to do the whole resort thing, since we wanted to explore Tulum on our own. We found Casa Isabelle online after a long research, and researched the area and Aldea Zama(where is located) and it looked great. Plus we found a good deal for the 9 days of our stay. Aldea Zama is a private condo development located 5 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes to downtown Tulum. It is a new development so all condos are brand new and they are building more, you can buy a property here and it would be a great investment. The owner of our condo gave us perfect directions to get there and Rosy (the condo manager) was expecting us. We rented a car to move on our own, and Tulum is very easy to drive around without getting lost. Is a small town that has not loose it's natural charm, unlike Cancun and Playa del Carmen. The apartment is beautiful and modern, we were the only ones in that building since they were still installing appliances in the other ones. So we had the pool for our own. Aldea Zama has security 24hrs. Internet worked really fast too. We had a washer and dryer, and all appliances worked perfectly. So, we would cook breakfast everyday for the kids before heading to the beach. Rosy gave us a lot of information about Tulum, and what to do and where to eat. And Rick (our condo owner) checked on us when we arrived to make sure everything was ok. There is a huge supermarket nearby, so you can buy anything you need there. You can eat local and very cheap in the town, or get more fancy in any restaurant at the hotels on the beach. We would come home directly to plunge on the pool. Rick left us a couple of toys for the kids and sand toys for the beach, plus movies for the kids. It was a nice touch and my son would watch the movies right before sleep. I also asked for a crib, that Rosy had ready for us, for just $30.00 for our whole stay. We had extra sheets, and towels in every room, plus towels for the beach. We basically felt at home the whole time, that even my 4 year old told us he loved our new house in Mexico!. If you are looking to feel at home and explore on your own, this is the perfect place. Is conveniently located and close to everything you need, plus is beautiful!
