Lugar en el Sol (Place in the Sun) is a new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in an gorgeous luxury resort setting on the Caribbean Coast of Riviera Maya, Mexico. The condo is located in the unique residential community of TAO Inspired Living, committed to balanced living and total well-being through a mind-body-spirit theme. This comfortable condo, located in Gran Bahia Principe Golf Resort & Spa, is on the second floor of the 3 story, contemporary building surrounded by lush vegetation.

Lugar en el Sol features two bedrooms, each with private bathrooms, a relaxing living room, and fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and a terrace balcony (for outdoor dining and/or relaxing). Condo comes with a smart TV with Cable (English and Spanish channels), Roku, a blue-ray DVD player, laptop (for you to use) and WiFi.

As you pack for your fun-filled vacation, please remember, the condo is completely turn-key. You only need to bring your personal items, clothes, etc. Each bathroom has a hair dryer. All linens are provided at the condo including 6 – large beach towels.

The TAO complex offers an unsurpassed way to relax in one of the most beautiful regions of the world. TAO is a safe community that feels remote and secluded, yet provides a dynamic atmosphere with endless local options for recreation, culture, dining and the arts.

Lugar en el Sol is completely turnkey with all dinnerware, linens and towels included. The unit comfortably sleeps 4 (but can accommodate 5) and features open plan living. The well equipped kitchen has a granite breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, and enclosed washer and dryer for easy vacation living. Choose to dine in, or check out the local restaurants in the area, or purchase an optional all-inclusive meal plan at the resort--for your entire stay or for just one day. (for more information about cost and how to arrange getting and 'all-inclusive wrist band', please contact me). In addition, the TAO Bistro at the Wellness Center (located a short stroll away) not only provides delicious breakfasts and lunch. They also provide room service (Condo Service, actually).

Lugar en el Sol is decorated in a calm, casual modern style. All interior spaces are cooled with ceiling fans and air conditioning.

TAO Resort amenities include the onsite holistic TAO Wellness Center offering programs in fitness, inner peace, personal development, creative arts and lifelong learning classes. At the Tao Wellness Center you can engage in wellness-focused programs and a host of holistic services including:

• two salt-water lap pools
• a fitness center
• Yoga
• a healthy snack bar
• an eco-boutique
• an amazing Temazcal (sweat lodge)
• a selection of rejuvenating therapies
• and much more

Many of the classes are free to TAO guests. The Center also hosts global retreats in its event facilities led by celebrated authors and teachers such as Don Miguel Ruiz, Gregg Braden and Jack Canfield, among others.

As a guest, you will have access to a private homeowner’s beach club on a pristine beach offering shaded loungers, drinks, snacks and towels.

You can play a round of golf (at a significant discount) on the surrounding world-class 27-hole Robert Trent Jones II championship golf course, recently rated 3rd best in the country, with a 100,000 square foot clubhouse.

Regularly scheduled shuttles are available to transport you around the resort and to the beach.

The resort has 4 luxury hotel complexes. As a guest, you have free access to 2 of the 4 resort facilities within the resort: the Luxury Bahía Príncipe Sian Ka’an and the Gran Bahía Príncipe Tulum, however, you will need to pay for food and drinks. [Details available on request]

Beach access is at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum. The beach is great and has a very safe lagoon. You can just 'hang-out' without getting an 'all-inclusive wristband' but be sure to bring your own beach towel. Sian Ka’an is for adults only and offers nightly 'open air' entertainment.

You can use the other two hotel complexes (Luxury Bahía Príncipe Akumal and Gran Bahía Príncipe Coba) if you purchase the all inclusive package. In December (although the exact date is not yet known) the new private Tao Beach Club with full amenities and easy access will be open and available for you to use. When the Tao Beach Club opens, it will be the only area on the resort with free access.

Lugar en el Sol at TAO is a unique destination for relaxation, healing, creative and spiritual inspiration where you can be complete without leaving the resort. Perfect for family getaways or a romantic retreat for couples.

It could also serve as your base camp for experiencing an abundance of eco and jungle adventures, exploring ancient sites, underground caves and rivers, diving at the world’s second longest barrier reef or discovering a series of amazing beaches, lined with authentic Mexican or trendy new restaurants, shops and galleries.

• Visit the Tulum Ruins, the awe inspiring ancient Mayan ocean side city (http://www.tulumruins.net)

• Book a tour at the Tao Wellness Center or pick up a rental car at the Cancun airport and explore the variety of towns and villages along Highway 307 as you travel south, such as Playa del Carmen with the longest pedestrian street in Latin America (or South Beach) or the island of Cozumel.

• Visit Akumal, home of expats and turtle nesting sites, and Tulum, a tourist hot-spot known for its top 10 beaches

• In Riviera Maya, you can create your own vacation experience!

Lugar en el Sol is a beautiful setting surrounded by sacred sites, natural beauty, and an abundance of attractions located in the heart of ancient Mayan culture, a perfect retreat for a week, a month or a season.

Enjoy a relaxing vacation in your place in the sun!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: For most of my life, I have enjoyed traveling and immersing myself the cultures of my host countries. Mexico offers a rich cultural experience with something for everyone. I am a long time fan of the Tulum area. I am certain that after staying at Lugar en el Sol, you will become a fan too!

Why the Owner Chose Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
Location, Location, Location: Perfectly located, our condo is 15 minutes from Tulum, 25 minutes from Playa del Carmen, 75 minutes from Cancun International Airport. Our condo is located in the heart of the Caribbean coast of Mexico in the 700 acre Bahia Principe Golf Resort.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This region features an array of attractions ranging from historic ruins and sacred sites, white sand, palm tree lined beaches, lagoons and sacred cenotes, and just offshore is the world's second largest reef. Riviera Maya is home to centuries old authentic towns and villages, modern architectural complexes, low rise hotels, marinas, sports facilities and gourmet or local restaurants. At the southern end you'll find the biosphere reserve, Sian Ka'an, a habitat noted for the richness of its flora and fauna. Riviera Maya has several small towns along its coastline, all of them located no more than 1.5 miles from the wonderful turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean.
