I finally got around to making a photo book of our trip to Mexico a couple months ago. We stayed the entire time in Tulum on the Mayan Riviera. Perfect combination of beach relaxation and historical sightseeing, thanks to the nearby Mayan ruins. Looking through the photos I immediately wished we were back, sipping coffee on the beach, exploring what the Mayans left behind, and eating just-caught seafood. Don’t even get me started on the cocktails. Margaritas, mojitos, pina coladas… Our hotel, La Zebra, pressed sugar cane every day for the cocktails. Fresh, fresh, fresh.
Hot coffee on our doorstep every morning by 7 am
Breakfast fruits. I’ll say it again…FRESH
Fresh sugar cane just waiting to be pressed

Tulum beach road. Almost all of the hotels and restaurants are off of this street.

One of the many cenotes, or underground lakes, along the world’s largest underground river system.
Dinner at SIMPLE. I wish we had more pics of the food here, but it was too good to wait.
Delicious tequila (for sipping, people!) We learned how to tell really great tequila by rubbing a few drops between your hands. If it smells floral and fragrant, you got yourself some fine tequila! Thank you, Richy Zapata, for our tequila/mezcal education.

Red snapper cooked in sea water. Probably my favorite dish of the entire trip.
