Tampalam is considered by local residents of the Costa Maya to have the best sand beaches and clearest water on the coast. It is located 50 kilometers north of town and 10 kilometers inside the Sian Kaán Biosphere. Density is very controlled allowing only one house per 100 meters of beach frontage generally speaking. Currently there are less than 10 houses in 40 kilometers. These properties are gorgeous. They are inexpensive due to their distance from town. This area is for people that want estate size lots and to be away from town. These beaches speak for themselves.
