After Cuba, we reached Cancun in Mexico. We then headed to Playa del Carmen before arriving in Tulum. We were a bit slowed down by the heat in Cancun and Playa del Carmen and didn't have the courage to take a couple of Jumping Pictures for even 2 minutes (don't forget we were there in December, and Frenchies like us are not used to such a warm and cool vibe at that time of the year).
We preferred to find comfortable lounge bars on the beach and slowly sip cocktails while contemplating the turquoise waters and people around. Yep, that's how lazy we had been those days. Maybe we are getting old.
But in Tulum, we had to jump if we wanted to pin Mexico on the map. So we mustered up all the courage we could get and did just that.
Tulum is a Mayan site with many temples that sits nearby the Caribbean Sea. It offers spectacular views of the sea and turquoise waters.
Jumping with sunglasses on is not always a good idea. 😊
In Tulum, we stayed at La Cigana Hostel (in the city, not on the touristy hostel strip along the beach). At first sight, we could see it was a great hostel as they had a cat (and as mentioned before, cats are a primary source of information for finding a great place to stay).
