This view was absolutely stunning, almost unreal.
When I first googled the Gran Ceneto, I thought it was photoshopped like that perfect McDonald’s burger you see on TV.
This vivid blue is unfiltered, every drop of the water is beautiful the way it is.
I woke up to the golden sunrise, early and ready to embrace Tulum.
I skipped through the wooden bridges pretending to be some sort of disney princess lost in the forest.
… and ran through the wooden tunnel filled with sunlight and led me to my prince charming!
JK, it actually led me to the hotel lobby where my driver Henderson was waiting for me. Close enough.
We were the first arrived at the gran-fairytale-ceneto where mermaids originated.
Jk… But I wouldn’t be surprised if I found one here.
I had enough time to soak into the water all by myself… accompanied by the fish and turtles of course.
The water was crispy and clear, full of histories and mysteries.
Time flew by so quickly, when the tourists arrived with their diving equipments I left to meet Henderson who’s been waiting patiently for me outside.
If you need to find a trust worthy driver, ask the receptionist at your hotel.
Please promise me you’ll visit the ceneto if you ever go to Tulum. The entrance fee is only 120 pesos which is less than 10 dollars! And if you go there early like I did, you’ll get a private ceneto all to yourself!
After that I fueled up with some breaky and ready for a nap!
All the hotels in Tulum are eco-friendly which means they have to follow strict rules and regulations to minimize any sort of pollutions.
The government, the locals and the tourists love this city so much, they highly respect these rules!
All of us contribute a little effort to keep Tulum at its best conditions.
After my nap, I headed out for some explorations.
My eyes were filled with blues and simply happiness.
I stopped for some smoothies on my way back and made some friends at the smoothie bar!
This bar is a part of the Tunich Hotel, they offer last minute rooms at a very affordable price for the first night (70 Pesos). The price does not go up too high and I thought I should share this piece of great info with you :p !
If you’re a student on a budget but still want to get away, check out this place ;)
I spent most of my times at the beach which I did not bring my phone.
There are 2 restaurants I recommend outside of Azulik: 1. Mateo (amazing tacos) 2. Gitano (grilled food)
I didn’t use my phone much so I have only a few food pics, but bear with me :p
Gitano is so romantic, beautiful setups, and amazing service.
Mateo has a rooftop which you can oversee the ocean.
What’s your favorite restaurant in Tulum?
