Mexico: Yucatan Video

It is save to say I love Mexico and more particularly the Yucatan. I don't normally travel to places I have been to before because there are too many new places to explore but when it comes to Mexico I am always ready to go. Below is a video of the week my friend, Laura, and I spent in Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Tulum. You can view the video below or click here

Mexico: Tulum

Tulum. There are two, I have learned. There is backpacker Tulum where you stay in hostels in town and eat at local restaurants. Then there is this whole other Tulum along the beach with boutique hotels and upscale dining. During my first time in Tulum I didn't even know this boutique hotel neighborhood existed but thanks to Instagram, I am now well aware of the picturesque restaurants, VW bugs and the local bike cruising scene.

Laura and I stayed along the beach road at MangleX Eco Hotel, a much more affordable option for the neighborhood since it's across the street from the beach in the jungle above the mangroves.

By day we had breakfast at Be Tulum, spent rain free afternoons on the beach beds at Rosa del Viento, lunch at Posada Margherita and biked to town and to Grande Cenote.

By night we wandered down to Mur Mur, Secret Garden and Gitano for dinner and drinks.
