For those who want to experience seclusion within an idyllic beach landscape, yet also enjoy luxe accommodations that make them completely forget they’re in a remote nature reserve, the Mukan Resort is where they need to be.
Located 23 miles from the coastal hotspot of Tulum but a world away in vibe, this high-end newcomer makes the most of its secluded position inside the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sian Ka’an biosphere.
For some destination wedding couples, accessibility is key. But for others, spending the time necessary to arrive at a remote location is worth the effort. Mukan Resort is the definition of remote – with only one road in and out and a distance of 20 miles to the nearest town.
A journey to the end of the world requires an overture, and the trip to Mukan, a resort way out on the edge of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve in the Yucatan, offers a great one: A one-hour ride in a six-seat outboard panga through vast shallow lagoons and mangrove-walled channels.
Mukan may be off the beaten path by road and sea, but laid-back luxury and seamless service await guests here. Nine spacious rooms with soothing island-style decor are either tucked into the breezy villa or in beachfront bungalows…

It’s called KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, and it’s open now amidst the lush forests and wondrous lagoons of the Sian Ka’an Reserve, an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The first eco-conscious luxury property in the Sian Ka’an biosphere has recently opened up, providing travelers a luxury hideaway in a truly tropical location.
A tropical getaway can inspire you to turn off and tune out, but a relaxing vacation can still be a responsible one. Just south of tranquil Tulum, the first eco-conscious resort has opened on the Sian Ka’an biosphere coastline, a Unesco World Heritage site.
If leaving a minimal carbon footprint is on your mind, then you’re in luck. KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, the Tesla of Mexican resorts, is situated on the Sian Ka’an biosphere coastline and is quickly making a name for itself as a self-sustaining property.
Mexico’s Caribbean coast has a very cool new eco-resort. It’s called the KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, and it’s set inside of the UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Riviera Maya.
Surrounded by thousands of species of flora and fauna, but few other humans, visitors can indulge in luxurious seclusion at KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, a new boutique resort located 22 miles inside the Reserve. Guests are transported by boat and Mother Nature from civilization, deep into the primordial jungle, to a beautiful dock on the lagoon side of the property.
It’s nearly impossible to imagine just how secluded and private KanXuk Blue Maya Resort is until you make the journey there. Though the 10-acre property is located approximately 37 kilometers from the popular beach town of Tulum, it might as well be a thousand miles away.
Deep in the Sian Ka’an biosphere – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to tropical birds, turtles, jaguars and puma – and edged by a reef, this tucked-away spot has four bungalows and five rooms set on the white sands of the Caribbean Sea, hammocks hung between lilting palms, indulgent service and delicious spa treatments.
