Splurging in paradise-like Tulum
The last stop on our amazing journey through exotic jungle, volcanic highlands, colonial cities and Caribbean beauties was Tulum in Mexico. This was also our “splurging” destination on the trip. We had chosen a place called La Vita e Bella right on the beach and very soon we understood that we had landed in paradise with big P. At daytime we just rolled down to the beach from our cabana. The only thing we had to focus on was not to get hit by the many kite surfers occupying the ocean. Tulum is a very popular spot for this activity and even though it is fun to watch it was the one, but only, less appreciated aspects of this place. For the rest it was just perfect. One afternoon we went to see the famous Tulum ruins just by the sea. I loved all the big Iguanas that lives there. In the evenings we had amazing food. One favorite spot was just a few hundred meters down the beach from our cabana. Up on a little hill laid a hotel called Mezzanine. Their outside lounge bar right by the sea served the most delicious cocktails we tasted on our trip to a very affordable price. Their restaurant offered Thai fusion cuisine that made my mouth explode. We honestly could not have asked for a better ending than this.
