So we have arrived in the land of fajitas and margaritas (eeeee!) Hello Mexico!
We decided to bypass Cancun and Playa del Carmen in the hope of finding somewhere a little less touristy down the coast so we ended up in Tulum, a thirteenth century Mayan city home to some pretty impressive beachside ruins.
That’s the money shot right there.
Tulum is pretty special as it’s the only Mayan city built on the coast. It was a seaport that mainly traded in jade and turquoise. It is also one of few which was protected by walls – technically it only has three, the sea acts as the fourth.
Walking around this beautifully positioned Mayan city really sparks your imagination and you can begin to envisage the PLAY that once took place here.
After a morning of looking around we headed for some much needed coffee and muffins before heading to one of Tulum’s many beaches.
It was such a fluke that we found this little beach but I am so thrilled that we did. When we return to Mexico (which we definitely will) I would love to stay at the Azulik Resort, it looks incredible!
This has been an awesome introduction to Mexico, I can’t wait to see more.
