Here is her diary

 

Destination Tulum, Mexico – My husband & I just returned it’s now my new favorite place!  I loved it for several reasons!

Month We went in March

Stayed at  boutique hotel called Rosa Del Viento

We booked an ocean view room.  While minimal (the rooms have no TV, the furnishings are very basic), it was everything we needed! The ocean was steps away and the view was breathtaking.  The hotel has a lovely restaurant on-site that makes the most delicious ceviche.  We had breakfast there every morning, and dinner twice.

In your suitcase Bring your favorite bathing suits, a few long sundresses, sandals, a good hat and do NOT forget bug spray! The mosquitoes are fierce!

Dined at  I had so many wonderful dinners in Tulum.  That’s another reason I love it so much – there is a big emphasis on fresh, flavorful cuisine and also a lot of Vegan options.  My favorite meal had to be at a small restaurant called La Cocina de Corina, which is within the Kin Ha hotel.  We had grilled prawns and an octopus ceviche that was so fresh!  I also had delicious dinner at Posada Margherita – they make fresh pasta!
Shopped  I didn’t really shop on this trip, except to pick up a few small trinkets for my baby girl. I got her a hand stitched doll (muñeca) and a hot pink wool owl (also hand stitched).

Diary  We would wake up to the sound of the waves crashing, and walk a few steps to the restaurant at our hotel.  We would both have breakfast, and coffee.  After breakfast, we would either hit the beach or embark on an adventure (a hike through the ruins, or swimming in a cenote).  We’d have a delicious lunch, take a relaxing nap on the beach, and then shower & change for an early dinner.  We were in bed by 9:00PM every night – but that’s exactly what we needed on this vacation!

Tips Plan to relax, bring a good book, your sunblock, mosquito repellant.  It’s very fun to rent a bicycle and ride through the strip of all the beach hotels. I also suggest a day trip to the ruins in Coba, and checking out the ruins on the beach in Tulum.  If you like to snorkel, there is a wonderful cenote called the Grand Cenote, where you can snorkel in a cave.

Mode of travel  We flew direct via American Airlines
