Honeymoon in Tulum, Mexico

Tulum Beautiful BeachWhen we touched down in the courtyard of Cancún airport, Grace and I warmed to the charm of the Mexican night sky. Having fretted before the holiday about the expected rain (we arrived in peak hurricane season), it was a huge relief to feel the balmy heat and see the stars twinkling above us.
Our journey from Cancún to Tulum was about 2 hours and when we arrived in our all inclusive dreams resort, I was immediately impressed. It wasn’t until the following morning that we were able to take in the full beauty of the place. On opening the curtains, we saw the most beautiful turquoise blue water and natural white sand. Green palm trees swaying gently in the breeze everywhere. ‘Welcome to paradise’, I said to Grace, and we gave each other a big, soppy honeymooner’s hug.
The resort itself was well run with a choice of 5 or 6 restaurants. The food wasn’t amazing if I am being really honest, but it is the type of place that doesn’t lend to negative thinking so we really enjoyed eating there. After a while, we got to know which restaurants were good and which were only average. Grace and I having a romantic beachside meal
The highlight of the trip for me was the trip to the amazing Mayan ruins of Tulum. This former bedrock of Mayan civilisation, without doubt, hosted the most amazing scenery I have ever witnessed. The beach there is truly amazing and I would urge anyone travelling to Mexico to visit it.
The one frustrating thing about our trip to the ruins was Grace’s determination to bypass the fantastic archaeological sights in favour of a good spot on the beach. She was focused on one thing and one thing only that day. Working on her tan! As a result, we had little time to appreciate the wonderful ruins. Women!!!…
