We are flying to Cancun today, and then taking a bus to Tulum for a few days of beach relaxation. We got up early this morning, got back to the apartment by 9 am to pack and catch a flight out of Mexico City.
For the first time ever, we will be staying on the beach in cabanas. Our resort is the cheaper version of a big resort a few minutes down the beach. We will still have access to the fancier resort that has a sports center with snokeling, boogie boarding, and a gym. It should be a lot of fun, and really relaxing.
Jose and I love the water in Tulum, and no one else has ever seen it before. My mom, the water lover, is of course excited about seeing such crystal clear blue water. I'm sure it will be hard for us to get out of the water at the end of the day.
We didn't get to see the pyramids in Mexico City, although we tried twice, so we are going to try hard to see the ruins in Tulum. They are right on the coast, and the old white buildings, white sand, green trees, and blue water are all visible.
After four full days on the beach, we are going to fly back to Mexico City for two more days before my parents leave. It has been a great trip so far, and I'm sure it will only get better on the beach.
