UFO over the Mayan Ruins

New UFO photo taken over the Mayan ruins of Tulum in Mexico on 15th May 2010.

Witness report: Disc shapped craft over the Mayan ruins of Tulum.

Event Description: “My girlfriends parents just recently returned from a trip to Mexico. They visited the Mayan ruins of Tulum and when they returned we were looking through the photos of the trip. In one of the photos we noticed something that made us gasp. You can clearly see a disc shaped craft in the top right corner that was not seen when the photo was taken. The craft is very clear and the photo is excellent quality. The photo has not been altered and was taken strait off of the SD card. The craft appears to be moving very fast and you can even see the shadow below the disc. This picture will send chills down your back! With the Mayan ruin below, this is one crazy freaking photo. I have showed this to all of my co-workers, friends and family. Even people who do not believe seem to be taken back by this!!!

Life in the Tulum Jungle

What can be said for living in the jungles of Tulum…“In the jungle, the mighty jungle, a lion sleeps tonight. In the jungle, the quiet jungle, a lion sleeps tonight.” Well, maybe not as many lions but many other jungle creatures living in the jungles of Tulum. Although the beaches of Tulum are as spectacular as you could get and the colors of the Caribbean are as bright one could imagine, these are not the only amazing areas of Tulum.
More and more people are starting to see the amazing beauty that lies under the awning of the lush tropical jungles that surround Tulum. Home to some of the most amazing animal and plant species found on Earth, the flourishing setting around Tulum draws and intoxicates visitors when they come.

The cool relief from the blazing Mexican sun that can be found under this rich canopy are causing wide spread interest for people choosing where to live. Although the beach paradise is usually the first dream that people think of, one trip into the jungle is showing a whole other side of Tulum that people are falling in love with.

There are many options when considering where and how to live in the jungles of Tulum. Small pueblos such as Macario Gomez and Francisco Umay offer a community full of wonderful people and a culture that is rare and spectacular. Just a few km from the beaches of the Tulum, these pueblos offer services, schools and shops and bring all of the conveniences of Tulum into the jungle.

Eco development projects throughout the jungle allow guests to buy a piece of land and a home built with certain specifications that reflect the mission of the project. Many of these projects utilize sustainable living materials, wind and solar power, bike paths etc. while still allowing guests the luxuries that accompany modern life. These projects have grown immensely in popularity over the past few years and more and more people are seeing the beauty of living an earth friendly life. This is even easier in the natural beauty that surrounds you when you live in the jungles of Tulum..

Ejido land is another option for buying land in the jungle. Ejido land is land that is owned by the native people who have lived there for many generations. This land, given to the communities after the revolution as a means of maintaining themselves, largely through agriculture, has now sectioned and is available for sale in lots.

When buying land in Tulum from the Ejido, there is little extra paperwork to do and a few other fees to pay in order to transfer the property. This can easily be handled by a Notary Public and/or a Mexican attorney. A lawyer that is licensed within Mexico will be able to draw up contracts and review conditions of the sale and will be aware of all current laws within Mexico.

Living in the jungles of Tulum is proving to be as inviting a proposition for people choosing where to live as the idea of the beach paradise that typically brought people here in the first place. Discover the many areas of Tulum and the rich and inviting jungles that surround it.
