Mukan Resort

Set on a strip of land between a white sand beach and tropical jungle, Mukan Resort officially debuts as the first luxury eco-resort in Mexico’s Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A paradise among the palms, Mukan offers barefoot luxury on the Caribbean coast just south of the bustling, tourist-centric town of Tulum.

With remoteness central to its charm, the adventure to Mukan begins at the entrance of the biosphere, where guests are whisked away by boat on a private 45-minute voyage through rich mangrove forests before reaching the resort’s private dock. Carved through the jungle of this immaculate islet, the intimate retreat features just four standalone beachfront bungalows and a main villa housing five guest suites, each with its own private terrace.
