Tulum, Playa y Pueblo

Okay: waking up in this amazing setting was worth the cold shower and the chilly night wind. Tulum beach is beautiful. The sea has all the gradient of blue you can imagine and the white-sand is blinding under the midday sun.

Around noon, we went to Tulum pueblo to find some food—options are thin on the ground by the beach. The town was a welcomed break. While the main street is mostly geared towards tourists (this is where you can buy somewhat Mayan blankets and Frida Kahlo bags), the side streets offered an interesting glimpse into Mexicans’ everyday life.

I can’t get enough of the colours. Ads—including the ubiquitous Bimbo, a famous brand of bread—and political slogans are painted everywhere in walls are just make side cheery. People are super relaxed and welcoming, even more so when yo hablo un poquito español.

After a trip to the supermarket, we were back on the beach for the show of the night: an amazing sunset.

  1. Oh my…. I had almost forgotten how paradisiac Tulum’s beach is… When I was there, I slept on a hammock, was bitten by a million mosquitos and had to take ice cold showers…. but it was all fine once you wake up and realize you’re actually in paradise. it can hardly get any better!
