Today’s guests gave up the 9 to 5, rat race, traffic-filled New York City life to discover what makes them joyful. Known socially as the Joy Chasers, Naima and Aaron Petz find living a mindful, minimalist lifestyle better for them and their three children. The adventurous family came to Tulum six months ago based on their daughter’s request to see the beauty of the jungle. They share insights into their nomadic philosophies and their thoughts about Mexico and what it is like to travel together as a family.

 

Aaron and Naima downsized their lives to seek out new cultures and experiences. When the children arrived they saw no reason to discontinue their search. They use world curriculum mixed with homeschool groups and courses to enhance their children’s knowledge base and if the children have an environment they wish to see the Petz’s can bring life to the wish.

 

Aaron & Naima’s Favorite Things About Tulum:

 

 

  • It’s safe their kids can go biking and exploring by themselves which creates a sense of freedom and independence.

 

  • Origami Tulum — for gelato on the beach
  • Public Transportation — They used to have a car but the bus system in Mexico is so nice they decided to give it up.
  • The people — Their big, boisterous family feels welcome everywhere!
