Beyond two lovely handcrafted gates, Los Arboles Tulum in Quintana Roo, Mexico, is an environmentally responsible community designed to include 221 green-built homes on 5-acre lots. Founded by Greg Schnurr, the master-planned community is being built to conserve 95 percent of its natural jungle setting. Eighty percent of the lots have been sold.
With sustainable energy systems, passive energy design and rainwater collection systems, the homes at Los Arboles Tulum are both comfortable and environmentally friendly. Los Arboles Tulum offers eight semi-custom home designs, priced from the low $200,000s to the mid $400,000s. Ranging in size from 1,000 square feet to 2,806 square feet, the homes have ample patio and balcony spaces for a true “harmony with nature” lifestyle in an old growth forest teeing with tropical birds, more than 30 varieties of orchids, giant butterflies and spider monkeys. Los Arboles Tulum is a 12-minute drive from Tulum’s white sand beaches, and it is close to Mayan archeological sites and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
Now entering the second development phase, Los Arboles Tulum offers full home design and construction services. losarbolestulum.com
