Elevate your Soul at the Beach

Updated: Jul 21, 2023

What is the meaning of Mahayana?

Mahayana is one of the main branches of Buddhism. In this Buddhist belief system anyone, not just monks, can achieve enlightenment. The roots of the name can be traced back to the Sanskrit words "maha" which means "great" and "yana" which means "vehicle."

At Mahayana Tulum we hope to be a vehicle for guests on their path towards enlightenment (or, at the very least, connection and relaxation). In a world where we are constantly bombarded with images and ideas of perfection or how we are "supposed" to be-- we offer a refuge for people seeking a place to clear their minds and agendas in order to re-center themselves.

Why did we name our collection of luxury beach homes Mahayana Tulum?

From the moment we stepped foot onto the wild, uncharted beaches of Tulum, Mexico, we were enchanted by the simplicity of the beauty of this place. The atmosphere is open and creative but there is one element that ties it all together. It is a desire to connect with nature, with each other, and with our selves more deeply. Freed from the distractions of daily life and perched directly on the shores of the expansive turquoise Caribbean Sea it is easy to remember that we are part of nature, and immersion in nature has a healing affect. Harmony and connection are our mission at Mahayana Tulum, so when we chose our new name in 2017, it seems like a natural fit.

What are the benefits of staying at Mahayana Tulum?

Come and spend a quiet afternoon enjoying the sea breeze and sharing time with loved ones and it will become clear that the thing that truly elevates our souls is the opportunity to pass time in the company of those we care most about. At Mahayana Tulum you can stay with friends and family and experience the profound beauty of Tulum together. caring and dedicated staff will give you a warm welcome and care for you during your stay so you can spend time doing the things that matter most - relaxing on the beach and exploring the beauty of the world that surrounds you. We hope to see you soon at Mahayana Tulum!
