Situated on the pristine Caribbean coast of Mexico, Candela is immersed within the leafy jungle of Tulum yet just minutes from the white-sand, palm tree-fringed beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see. To the south of Candela is the Sian Ka’an biosphere, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which boasts one million acres of pure, untouched nature. To the east are the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. To the west, the region’s famed cenotes reveal the underground crystal-clear waters long considered sacred by the Mayan people.
An International Destination
A picturesque haven for travelers from around the world, Tulum is an easily accessible destination, located less than two hours from the Cancun International Airport, which welcomes connecting flights from nearly every city in North America and direct service from all major hubs. The region offers an enviable, tropical climate with an average annual temperature of 79°F (26°C) and average annual sea temperature of 82°F (28°C).
Natural Adventure Abounds In Tulum
Candela sits within a new area earmarked by the Mexican government for high-end, low-density development, ensuring privacy and views will be preserved. The secluded jungle location connects by roadway to the newly constructed beach road, Av. Kukulkan, which connects Downtown Tulum to the beach, offering a direct path to the crystal-clear ocean waters.

Minutes from Candela are Tulum’s world-class restaurants, health-centric dining destinations, authentic boutiques, wellness offerings and lively nightlife scene. The region’s best nature-driven adventures and experiences are also moments from home, including the warm Caribbean waters, ideal for snorkeling or diving the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Nearby ancient Mayan ruins overlook the sea, while tropical forests and marshes are home to a range of animal life, including monkeys and more than 300 bird species.
