The Project

A new and undiscovered world

The community of Aldea Uh May, located just outside the vibrant cultural center of Tulum, Mexico, in the small artisan town of Francisco Uh May, is emerging from the heart of the jungle as a new model for conscious living. Spearheaded by real estate group, ALDEA UH MAY, the pioneering new development just a few kilometers from the Caribbean sea, envisions a balanced and interconnected future throughout all aspects of living, rooted in sustainability, inclusiveness, and resilience.

Pininfarina oversaw the artistic direction for the masterplan of the 20-hectare development, designing a proprietary transportation and mobility network, as well as various clusters of health-oriented amenity and public spaces, to support the community’s 127 multi-family and single-family residential lots.


Aldea Uh May is a community where technology and nature not only coexist but work together to create a new and undiscovered world and set of experiences, while becoming a pioneer of stewardship of the natural and its built environment.

The Way

Innovation, sustainability and technology

Inspired by Aldea Uh May’s unique context, Pininfarina’s concept celebrates the locale’s rich biodiversity, honors its Mayan heritage, and heralds the power of wellbeing throughout all aspects of living. Employing a holistic and regenerative approach, Pininfarina uniquely translates the ethos of Aldea Uh May into a timeless and thoughtful brand. Rooted in its sense of place, Pininfarina’s inventive sensibilities and keen attention to detail bring Aldea Uh May to life through a framework that will foster human connection, emotion, and meaningfulness for years to come. Pininfarina’s reimagined design vernacular will carry through Aldea Uh May’s entire organic structure –– focusing on the restyled welcoming entrance experience, shared streets and open-air amenity spaces, which will one day play host to local arts and culture exhibitions.

The Idea

Reconnecting with nature

Our strategic blueprint for the property preserves much of the existing jungle ecosystem, intended to further elevate and unify Aldea Uh May’s focus around the symbiotic coexistence of technology and nature. The resulting, first-of-its-kind destination for conscious, mindful living will serve as a steward for both the built and the natural environment. Balancing the innate human desire for a connection with nature, the Aldea Uh May community includes open air natural wellness and educational-oriented lifestyle spaces with state-of-the-art amenities seamlessly woven and spread along large portions of conserved and untamed jungle.

More about this project coming soon.
