Tulum Daydream Days
Most mornings were spent walking on the beach and afternoons lounging and eating fish tacos
When I think about Tulum, I imagine lush green jungles, powdery white sand beaches, and sunny days. Our experience with this town was both exactly how it’s advertised and also a little bit disappointing at some point. Tulum is beautiful, but for a high-tourist area, finding parking was difficult if you wanted to check out the restaurants near the beach. There are also no sidewalks, so prepare for close encounters with traffic.
Other than that, the beach was beautiful and the resort we were staying in gave us some of the peace we were looking for on this trip.
Tulum is aesthetically-pleasing, with natural, wooden architecture and lush greenery. There is a smell of incense in the air that makes you feel like the entire town is a spa.
We stayed in a boutique resort that was small so there were only a few of us there. Most mornings were spent walking on the beach and afternoons lounging and eating fish tacos. By sunset, we’re hanging out (literally) on a hammock lounge just outside our room. There was free yoga by the pool and complimentary bikes that we never got to use.
There’s something beautiful about starting your day with the sunrise and ending it with a sunset.
