As you may have caught on from my Instagram, I spent the first week of March traveling throughout the Yucatan Peninsula and it was nothing short of amazing. Our days consisted of watching the sunset, sipping on piña coladas, finding sea shells, and shopping at local markets. I took close to 500 photos on the trip, but below are my favorites. Enjoy!
We started the trip in Cancun but only spent about a day and a half there before driving down to Tulum. Cancun was so beautiful and we found the most incredible restaurant there, Navios. We ended up eating there two nights in a row to enjoy the sunset and eat some tasty seafood. Would highly recommend it!
After Cancun, we took a cab down to Tulum (about 2 hours) and from the second we turned down the road, we were o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d. Tulum has to be the most magical place I’ve ever visited in my life. It’s so bohemian and relaxed and instantly makes you feel at peace. We stayed at La Zebra hotel but bounced around to various others to appreciate their architecture, beach views, and menus, of course.
It’s almost impossible to outline the highlights of our time in Tulum, since — and I don’t mean to sound cliché here — it was the most spectacular place I’ve ever been to in my life. But, if I have to, I’d say the highlights were: Posada Margherita for amazing Italian food and drinks, Hartwood for the most delicious dinner I’ve ever had, Coqui Coqui for perfumes, candles, and beautiful clothing, and Be Tulum for the most relaxing beach experience in the world.
Our last stop of the trip was Playa del Carmen since it’s closer to the airport from Tulum and has lots of great shopping opportunities. Tulum definitely still has my heart but our hotel in Playa del Carmen also had that amazing bohemian feeling and the most comfortable lounge chairs.
