Resort Aerial ViewThe magnificent Iberostar Tucan resort is nestled across 28 acres of lush jungle with a spectacular beachfront and artistic flair. Literally immersed in vegetation, stone laid walkways wind through a light forest of trees, with restaurants on raised platforms peering over lagoons filled with tropical goldfish. A gigantic thatched palapa rises over the lobby, with statues of Mayan figures and a pyramid shaped kiosk bar. Covered marble walkways lined with blue pillars pass beneath Mayan arches, leading to specialty restaurants and the main self serve Tulum dining room. An immense tri-sectioned pool appears like an oasis on the edge of the jungle. Watersports and world-class diving instruction are offered in the crystal-clear aqua Caribbean.
