Tulum = Amazing. I still remember my first trip to Mexico. I was 11 and bought a blue velvet sombrero and a lace La Isla Bonita dress to wear back home. I looked sharp. I also remember having strawberry daiquiris and the waiter saying, "Si, Si! No alcohol!" after downing two of them full of tequila. Oops. This time was no different. I spent lazy days swimming in stalactite filled cenotes and chilled with giant sea turtles. I watched kiteboarders show off (sporting mullet dreads. Hot.) and I ate some serious BBQ ribs worthy of The Flintstones at a lovely place called Hartwood. Check it out on The Selby. Isn't it dreamy?
FAVORITE MEAL Hartwood / BEST BEACH Playa Azul / AWESOME TACOS Hornitos Taco Stand on the side of the road. Eat with the locals.
