After making it to Tulum, I soon realized that Tulum is a turquoise Mexican dream! Tulum has everything to offer a coastal lover from crystal clear blue water, white sandy beaches that stretch for miles, Mayan ruins hovering over one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, underground glistening blue-green cenotes to explore, and beyond. Making it to Tulum at the end of my backpacking adventure through Mexico and Belize in 2008 was a dream come true. Mexico

Here’s why:MexicoMexicoMexico

Unexpectedly, the best was saved for the last. Tulum was (and still is) one of the best places I had ever seen. You can’t help but fall in love with it at first sight.

  1. Thanks Jessica, these posts have been really interesting. Here in the UK we only ever hear about the bad parts of Mexico, and if British tourists do travel there they don’t seem to leave their hotel complex. You’ve made me realise that it is possible to travel properly in Mexico, and it’s definitely going on my bucket list now 🙂

    • Yay, I’m so glad my Mexico Diaries series has helped you realize that #1- Mexico is an amazing place to visit (which I think you already knew), #2- that it’s easy (and safe) to travel around Mexico–if in the right areas, and #3- that you plan to do it!
      I can’t wait until you do. Mexico has so much to offer. I’m glad you are seeing it from the perspective of someone who has spent months in Mexico! When will you make it happen?
