“Most of our guests leave having had an experience that has awoken their awareness of nature,” says Emilio Heredia, owner of the Papaya Playa Beach Resort in Tulum. These words hint at Heredia's mission to create something that bordered on the impossible—an integrated, 100-room, 3-villa property on the beach and in the jungle that, yes, also includes a tree house. Dotted along the beach of the Caribbean coast and nestled in the jungle, the Papaya Playa Project is truly a dream, overlooking azure waters where Mayan mysticism and creative vibes reinvigorate the sense.
