A hub for barefoot bohemians and glamorous goddesses, Tulum is a Mayan hideaway that perfectly distills the gypset lifestyle. An off-grid escape for nomadic creatives, it is a playground for spirituality and community. This tiny, idyllic eight-mile strip of sand on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula is tucked between a tropical jungle, Mayan ruins, and the Sian Ka’an biosphere: It’s a heady vortex.
'Gypset' is a term coined by New York Times journalist Julia Chaplin to mean an unconventional, bohemian approach to life, and she believes Tulum perfectly encapsulates this style of living. The author sheds light on the isolated Mexican coast through thoughtful passages in this hardcover book. It's filled with over 200 striking images featuring dreamy waters, natural swimming holes, beach bonfires and its artisanal scene.
