Tulum

Of cause you should see my new hometown.
On the blog you find loads of descriptions of Tulum and its cenotes and turtles, do not miss it! Take trips to Akumal, Muyil, xcacel, Tankah and Cobà.

Dance Salsa at el zebra Sunday at 9pm.

Smile to the residents and you will get smiles back 🙂 ask them questions and they will fill you in. Tulum runs on Karma.

One of my favorite ruin sites. I only met few other tourists.
……
Bacalar

image

There is a reason this place is called “laguna de 7 colores”. The colors of the water are breathtaking. Unfortunately it rained all days I was there.

Explore the fort to learn about the history of the place. The history of Bacalar included pirates and Maya rebels.
…………
Chichen Itza

This is one of the most visited ruin sites. Vendors are appoaching you everywhere, which can be a bit annoying in the long run. It you take your time to talk to them instead of just running away, you will more than likely get some interesting stories. This is also a good place to buy cheep silver.

Do a tour in lancha! You will see flamingoes, eagles, an ojo de agua, cucarachas del Mar.

I was a bit disapointed to find out that there were trucks and many polluting and noicy golfcars on the so called “carless Island”. I had expected to find a hippie, reegae laid back place with lots of veggies and green juices – maybe it was because I came in the low season.
