Lots of videos this month to capture the sounds and action in and around Tulum.
Recommended: Tubo Tulum, Batey bar, Crisspac Taqueria, Las Palmas Beach.
Not Recommended: Pocna service at their resto on the beach, Milagrito for food poisoning.
From Playa del Carmen we took a 40 minute colectivo (mini van) to Villas Tulum just at the North end of town once you pass the entrance to the Ruins. Took a good seat this time! Once in front of what we thought was Carmen's Airbnb we waiting an hour or so to find out we were not in front of Carmen's place. GPS and Google maps strike again. On top of that either my spanish sucks or the neighbour has no idea who her neighbour is. "Is your neighbour named Carmen?" "Si". Enough said.
