Come to Tulum, and enjoy the Paax & Love Festival!

Paax & Love Festival’s first edition will take place in Tulum on January 5th and 6th 2019. “Paax”, which means “music” in Mayan, will define the whole festival, since music is the soul of this event which will also feature other forms of art and culture, cuisine, and experiences with Nature.

According to its creators, Paax & Love will have a joyful and open vibe, because cultural diversity will be the basis to create harmony. A wide variety of musical genres –rock, reggae, hip hop, indie, surf, funk, new wave and pop– will take one of the two stages, while the second one will feature house, tech-house, deep-house and techno.

Whether you are aware of the Mexican music scene or not, you should come to watch and listen to Zoé, DLD, Lng Sht, or to enjoy the DJ sets of musicians such as Rubén Albarrán, from Café Tacvba, Molotov’s Paco Ayala, and Sussie 4, who will be spinning their favorite music and mixes.

Although music will be first, the Paax & Love Festival will have many other entertaining options like pool parties, the opportunity to visit a beautiful cenote, food trucks, a fair with rides, a trendy-products market and a chilling & relax area to restore energies to keep partying.

Start your 2019 with the best music in the best place! Come to Paax & Love Festival, and stay with us, we are Happy Address, and we always want to make you feel at home.

The City of the Descending God

Tulum is one of the most sought after travel destinations of Mexico. In addition to the beauty of the beach and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, Tulum is the perfect match between the ancient mysticism and the remaining tranquility of the Mayan people, and a sophisticated lifestyle. Besides, Tulum’s contemporary spirit it’s not at odds with its mysticism and even with its place in History.

Tulum, the magical Maya city of the Caribbean, means “wall” in English. Its original name was Zamá, which means “Dawn”. It was built in the posclassic period on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean landscape. According to historians, the main building of this Mayan city, “The Castle”, served also as a lighthouse to warn sailors of the dangerous reef underneath the glittering waters of the sea next to the coast.

The city was devoted to the cult of the “Descending God” Ah Muzen Kaab, mysterious deity which has been related to the twilight Sun and planet Venus, and also with rain and lightning. The architecture combines Mayan style elements with others which were influenced by Central Mexico civilizations. Tulum was built according to the traditional pattern of the four cardinal points to align itself to the cosmic pattern of the five sacred points (North, South, East, West and the Center).

Tulum is more than a paradise-like place: it’s full of history and culture, depth and mystery. In Happy Address we invite you to Prana and Querido Tulum, our two developments in the area, so you can choose the accommodation that best suits you to discover this sacred city.

 

 

 


Get an adrenaline rush in the Caribbean

The Mayan Riviera provides the right emotion for everybody. If you’re looking for peace and rest, there are spots and landscapes that will get you there; if you’re into partying, you can look for the nightclubs and bars that have made Mayan Riviera’s nightlife one of the most fun and sought after in Mexico. If you want to get an adrenaline rush and experience your wild side, there are also options for you!

What are you craving for? To get your adrenaline rush near the water, in the air, on the ground? In the three of them? If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re into excitement, thrill-seeking and extreme experiences. Here are some activities you can’t miss during your stay in the Mayan Riviera.

 

1. Parasailing

If you haven’t been into it, imagine a cross between skiing and flying, that’s the best way to describe this way of marveling at the beaches from above. This activity is exciting from beginning to end; what could be better than the wind in your hair while you’re floating like a sea bird that reigns upon the heights?

 

2. Bungee jumping

You will hardly find an activity as extreme as this one. Only those who are really searching for an adrenaline rush dare to do it. Imagine 25 meters between you and the ocean: you’re hanging by a thread and going faster and faster by the second. Do you dare?

 

3. Skydive

If you dare to try bungee jumping, you will find skydiving very attractive. There are businesses which specialize in skydiving and offer freefalls over the coasts of the Mexican Caribbean. Imagine looking from above to the line between the turquoise sea and the glittering sand. The Mayan Riviera’s weather and landscape are ideal for you to try skydiving.

Of course, these aren’t the only activities out there, just some of the most significant ones. Don’t worry about accommodation: with Happy Address you can be sure you’ll have a great place with first-rate services waiting for you when you get back.

 

 

 


The Mayan Riviera is our home, let us respect it

At Happy Address we are waiting for you to live the Mexican Caribbean experience fully. Being here means to reconnect with ourselves, to enjoy and value what is really important in life. Our relationship with Nature, Earth and its cycles is fundamental. We encourage you to have here a fulfilling experience, may the pleasure and awareness that this magical place entices be positive for both.

In the Yucatan Peninsula, you can find 55% of Mexico’s mangroves and also fundamental reefs that sustain the sea life of this region. The ever green jungle is the peninsula’s lung and contributes to regulate the all-year-long tropical weather which is so attractive to tourists and local people alike.

Because it’s important for all of us to look after this paradise which is so generous to us, we want to share with you the following advices that will contribute to make your next visit to the Mayan Riviera both respectful and rewarding.

 

1. Don’t use a car

Living the Mayan Riviera experience is better by bike or by foot. Time here passes by slowly and unhurried, so you can enjoy a good stroll or use public transportation. Thus, you will reduce CO2 emissions and your carbon footprint.

 

2. Beware with food

Cuisine in the Mayan Riviera is delicious and has many options. You can find dishes from all over the world, of many styles and for different tastes. Nevertheless, you may get clandestine offers to consume protected species, such as sea turtles, and you should definetely refuse them.

 

3. Reuse and recycle

When we are travelling, we can indulge ourselves into using disposable packagings. Try to reuse packagings, bottles and containers, or use, whenever it is possible, returnable ones. Also, chose recycled packagings (cardboard, paper or fabric), instead of plastic.

 

4. Be like you were never there

The Mayan Riviera will surely leave its mark on you, but be careful that you don’t leave your mark on her. It’s vitally important to collect cans, plastic bags, napkins and all other trash you’ve generated during your stay. Separate your trash before it’s collected.

 

5. Pay respect to green areas

Mayan Riviera’s Flora and Fauna are noble and basic for survival. We urge you not to smoke nearby nor throw the cigarrette butts or the matches on the ground because they can cause a fire. Also, if you visit a natural park or reservation, you must be even more careful because they are protected natural areas.
