The Mayan Ruins of Tulum - Part 1

Three rocks among the ruins

I visited these ruins on a scorching hot morning, even though we got there very early... I'm sure I would have enjoyed the visit even more if the sky had been a little cloudy.

In spite of the heat and the lack of shade, I loved the site and I was delighted to see how well kept it is.

Cute coatis


These fluffy cuties live with the guests at the hotel :)
They're coatis, a delight to watch and a big plus in favour of the resort.

Villa 57

This is Villa 57, where I stayed during my vacation in Mexico. The Grand Bahia Principe Akumal has some of the best kept grounds I've ever seen at a big resort.

Colourful paths

 Colourful and clean, the resort is quite pleasant to walk around in.
