tulum..

cover

Visiting my motherland is always a treat, especially to when I’m able to experience places I’ve never visited in México before. Since we stayed in Playa del Carmen we had to take a 30 minute bus ride to Tulum for the day which we were excited for.

A four dollar bus ride and 30 mins later, we were in the beautiful sandy beaches of Tulum! I had done my research prior on Tulum for a few things I wanted to do/see and two of the main things were: visit the ruins that overlooked the beach and take a photo under the crooked tree in Playa Paraiso. Both sightings made for the perfect (instagram) photo!

As we spent the whole day on the beach, laying out, eating sea food and getting in a little dip into the water, we took a little nap to get some energy back. When we woke up, the sunset was slowly setting so we walked around the area to see what we can discover. We came across such a beautiful backdrop full of trees and shade; it almost felt like we went from the beach to a tropical safari. Tulum was definitely everything I had hoped for and more! Such a beautiful gem.

For those of you who emailed me asking me where I stayed… I stayed in Playa del Carmen at the BE Playa Hotel. It’s such a cute little boutique hotel and it’s just less than a block away from 5th Ave- a promenade full of shops, restaurants, bars, street vendors, etc- and two short blocks away from the actual beach. There’s soooo much to do and see in Playa del Carmen, more so than Tulum. If you happen to stay in Playa del Carmen, you have to take a day trip to visit Tulum or vice versa. There’s also Cozumel, an island in the Caribbean sea, where you can take a quick boat ride from Playa del Carmen as well.

Can’t wait to share a few more photos from my IG and diary! Stay tuned, xx

      I agree with Sue! You look so pretty in that white dress, your beautiful tan makes the dress to stand out. I love the sunglasses as well, those mirrored sunglasses are my favorites lately. Those awesome pictures reminded me of Bay Island in Honduras (home).
