STONE TREE has been a site for weddings, family reunions, honeymoons and single travelers. It has always been a great pleasure of me when I am in Tulum to meet the guests. They come from all walks of life and ages and from all over the world; backpackers, doctors, farmers, filmmakers, divers, anthropologists, teachers, cooks. It has been a great pleasure for me when I am there to meet such interesting and wonderful folks.
