We start with the most flashy star from las Puertas, Olivia (Victor´s mom) she´s the manager of the place and the principal reason that las Puertas exist now in Tulum, She encourage victor to take the risk and try the elixir of turquoise blue waters, you will love her as we do, She´s our favorite carácter.. but.. don't tell to the rest of the team.

We want to add this point to the list, cause we think that is relevant to mention, as Tulum is a living jungle and doesn´t offer this facility in almost everywhere, and in the actual time is rare to have an amount of cash in the pocket.
You won't have this obstacle at Las Puertas.
