Happy Saturday, guys! Last weekend I got to spend some time in Tulum, Mexico with friends. It was a short trip, so we really only had two full days there to soak in everything we could. Some of you saw me posting on IG and asked if we’d be doing a city guide. I think it was just too short of a trip to get enough info for a guide together, but I’d be happy to share what we did and loved with you anyway in case you’re curious.
Our first day we spent some time on the beach. There was a LOT of seaweed this time of year, so we mostly just hung out in the beach bars but didn’t swim much. I really liked Ziggy’s, which is where that photo with all the hanging basket-looking chandeliers is from. We also spent about an hour or so visiting the ruins nearby, which was totally worth the short drive. And for dinner that night we went to Gitano, which was really good and had the best atmosphere. We stayed at an AirBnB while we were there. It was a very short distance from pretty much everything, so it was very easy to get around in our rental van. 🙂
On our second day we got breakfast, did a little shopping and then got Paletas (at Flor De Michoacan). It was a good morning! Then we drove to Dos Ojos, which is one of the Cenotes in the area. We spent most of the afternoon there swimming and hanging out. In the parking area there was a guy with a cart selling a sort of crepe-like wrap that had bananas and Nutella. So, obviously I got that on the way out. Then we had dinner on the beach at Posada Margherita, which is a charming little Italian spot.
Like I said, it was a short, but awesome trip! I LOVE Tulum and would highly recommend staying there if you are planning a trip to Mexico and don’t want to stay on a resort. xo. Emma
