Day 4 - Boat Tour and around Tulum
Here I am again writing about my Mexico trip. Day 4 was basically about heading off to a smaller town called Tulum. An employee of the hotel we stayed at recommended that we take a boat tour/bird watching before we leave. Im not much of a photographer so almost all the pictures I took were blurry.
So we checked out from our previous hotel and headed off for the small town of Tulum. Here we stayed at a boutique hotel right in the town pueblo just a few minute walk from the main restaurant strip in Tulum. I found this place through Trip Advisor. It was so hard to find an affordable hotel with a private wash room that was beach front so I decided okay we'll stay in town.
The hotel is small and only had about ten rooms? We were the only ones staying in the second floor which I loved! We got our private balcony with a hammock where we like to hang out during the night and watch Netflix. LOL! They also provide free hot/cold mineral water, coffee and tea and provided us with a map of the area, recommended good restaurants and told us how to commute (weve been taking the cab / a private car service before)
We took a stroll around, got fascinated by this sugar cane juice cart. Mmmm it was sooooo refreshing. I got attracted to a garden looking restaurant called Abuela's and decided to have afternoon snacks here. Best chips Ive had in Mexico!!! and Im loving the 2 for price of 1 / 3 for price of 1 drinks. :D
For dinner we went to La Gloria de Don Pepe. The paella was soooooo good!! Only thing I dont like about them, people here weren't friendly. IDK reviews over the internet says "friendly service" I dont agree though.
oh and here's a farewell complimentary dessert from the staff of the Fairmont Mayakoba.
They're so nice!
