We stayed at posadamargherita. It is nicely decorated and has good food and excellent fruit juices.
We stayed 3 days in Tulum, which was perfect.
We spent one morning visiting the Tulum ruins. Go there early in the morning. A taxi can take you there in 5 minutes from the hotel. There is a splendid walk in the ruins and a marvelous view.
Another day, we went diving in a Cenote and just swimming there.
The rest of the time we just relaxed on the beach with a good book.
We stopped in COBA on the way to Valladolid. The Mayan site is beautiful. The temples are scattered in a dense tropical forest.. Don’t forget to take water, sunglasses and sunscreen. It can get very hot there, even in the forest. It’s also a good idea to bring some food, as the only things you will find in the park are expensive snacks.
We stayed in a small and typical casa called Posada San Juan.
It’s really worth a visit. Half a day is sufficient.
We jumped and swam in the cenote in the center of the town.
We visited the beautiful covent of de san bernardino de Ciena dating 1522, built 30 years after Christofer Colomb discovered the American continent. Very cute and colorful streets.
