Tulum is the first place to see the dawn in Mexico. At this time of the year, the sun crowns the horizon at 7:30am, and splashes gold into the sea, the trees, and the people. Each morning of our trip, the Yucatán Peninsula would welcome us with a warm breeze that smelled so sweet. We’d wake up to the birds tweeting outside our hut on the beach. Whether we’d spend the day reading next to the waves, or touring sacred Mayan grounds, we’d always end the day flopping into the Caribbean sea at sunset, bellies full of beer and ceviche.
We lived in paradise for six days, and returned to the Pacific seaside just in time for the holidays. There was so much more we did on our trip not pictured here, so check out my Facebook post if you want to see us in an underground cenote or climb half of a Mayan estructura (or eat lots of fresh fish).
