Bookmark This Off-The-Grid Mexican Oasis For Your Next Vacation

This little slice of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula is the perfect storm of lush tropical forest and ruins, perched near the Sian Ka’an biosphere. The new book Tulum Gypset by journalist Julia Chaplin, who coined the term ‘gypset’ (a mashup of Gypsy and Jetset), examines this Mexican playground populated by free-roaming bohemians. Tulum’s eight-mile strip of sand perfectly distills the ‘gypset’ lifestyle, providing an off-grid escape for nomadic creatives. The tome catalogues both the striking surroundings and the gorgeous people who inhabit it. Care to don your macramé bikini or board shorts and dive in?
