TULUM

August 19, 2015

A few weeks ago, my two best friends and I escaped to Tulum, Mexico for some much-needed relaxation and beach time. We booked the flights this past winter, and there was nothing more effective than the anticipation of those turquoise waters to get us through the brutal cold here in New York. It was everything we were imagining and more, what with all of the brilliant colors everywhere, the slower pace, incredible food, and both the jungle and ocean within our reach.

It wasn't all smooth sailing, though. On the second day, my camera stopped working, and I had to let go of the expectations I had for months of documenting everything on the trip with my beloved DSLR. After the initial shock wore off, I found it liberating to only use my trusty iPhone for most of the following photos. I definitely learned firsthand what it means when people say that the best camera is the one you have with you!

This won't be the last time, Tulum. I'll be back soon for your fresh ceviche, beautiful beaches, and laid-back atmosphere.

Our first meal in Tulum-- needless to say, it blew us away.

Tulum is famous for their cenotes, sinkholes filled groundwater, and our first tour of Sac Actun Cenote didn't disappoint.

We couldn't not stop at Coqui Coqui, which has such a stunning and inspiring space.

Everything about the decor at Posada Margherita was perfect.

El Jardin de Frida had the best hammocks to relax in before dinner.

It wouldn't be a trip to Tulum without having some seafood, right? The shrimp ceviche from El Camello Jr. was some of the best seafood I've ever had.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect ending than spending it at La Buena Vida in Akumal. After having our fill of the swings at the bar for happy hour, we moved to the hammocks on the shore and caught both the thunderstorm and sunset on our last evening in Mexico. Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled
