April 2018 - Tulum - Full Moon Party, Bikes and More Seaweed

A great month of biking to the beach, swimming in between the seaweed and living the good vibes. Full Moon partied, upgraded to a bigger apartment and enjoyed multiple restaurants, plus welcomed a surprise visit from Sole and Maxi friends from Buenos Aires.


Cute
Enjoying a Full Moon Party experience at The Papaya Playa Project Hotel.  $32 USD just to get in and then only $4.50 beers which is high for Mexico, but very cheap for the Beach Zone of Tulum.
