FIRST LOOK: Papaya Playa Project, Tulum, Mexico

Feb 21, 2017

When it comes to North American escapes, Mexico is the perfect destination for a tropical getaway. Beyond its vast stretches of flour-like sand and clear blue waters, the country’s best beaches are home to resorts that not only give breathtaking views, but are eco-friendly too.

If you’re jumping in on responsible tourism, make Papaya Playa Project your first stop. The new resort, that has taken root in the jungle along the less explored coastline of Yucatan in Mexico’s Tulum, is one of the many eco-conscious properties in the region.
