Time in Tulum

If Tulum, Mexico were a man, I'm pretty sure that I'd run off with him. Located 2 hours south of Cancun, Tulum is an almost perfect paradise. It is incredibly beautiful, so much so that it is hard to go longer than 10 minutes without being in awe of something: birds, trees, flowers, the turquoise Caribbean. The air and water are both HOT here, and I don't mean just warm. They are close enough to body temperature to necessitate wearing almost nothing both day and night. It is hard not to be affected by this place. Once you are here for a while it is as if you begin to become one with it. Taking on the characteristics of the land, people become sexier, warmer, and more open almost overnight. Everyone smiles here. If only all places could be this wonderful--but then, of course, Tulum would not be so magical.

Where else can you find Cacti by the sea? What a perfect combination of sensual elements.

This was my favorite palm. I couldn't get over how perfect it was.

    If you're into snorkelling a wet suit is advisable as the fresh water is cool and you can swim for hours and still not see everything. The fish life is incredible, as good as reef scuba diving, and there are a lot of rare queen conches.

    If you're going snorkeling or plan to be in the water a lot, consider using a t-shirt. The water will reflect the sun and you will burn FASTER! And re-apply sunscreen often!
