Cardinal Tulum: A Sustainable and Innovative Community in Paradise

Updated: Mar 11

Tulum is one of the most attractive destinations in the Caribbean, thanks to its natural beauty, cultural heritage, and vibrant lifestyle. However, not all developments in Tulum respect the environment and the local community.

That’s why Cardinal Tulum stands out as a sustainable and innovative community that offers a unique opportunity for investors and residents who want to live in harmony with nature and enjoy a high-quality of life.

What is Cardinal Tulum?

Cardinal Tulum is a community of 20 exclusive townhouses in Selvazama, a new urban area in Tulum that integrates innovative architecture and sustainable design. Selvazama is a master-planned community that preserves 60% of the natural vegetation and promotes social and environmental responsibility.

Cardinal Tulum offers three types of townhouses with different sizes and features, ranging from 2 to 4 bedrooms, with private patios, plunge pools, outdoor bathtubs, and rooftop terraces. Each townhouse is designed with a bioclimatic architecture that optimizes the use of natural resources and minimizes the environmental impact.

Cardinal Tulum follows the concept of Slow Living, which promotes a balanced holistic well-being lifestyle that celebrates the connection among all living beings and nature. Slow Living is based on four pillars: health, ecology, awareness, and leisure.

Cardinal Tulum has a variety of amenities for its residents, such as a lobby, a coworking space, a swimming pool, a spa, an edible garden, a celestial observatory, a fire pit, a beach club, and a jungle playground. These amenities are designed to enhance the quality of life, foster social interaction, and provide entertainment and relaxation.

Cardinal Tulum has a certification EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies), which ensures that the project meets the highest standards of environmental performance.

EDGE is a green building certification system that helps developers reduce their environmental impact and offer a more attractive product to customers.
