We stated our second day out nice and early so we could get to the Tulum Ruins before the crowds and heat.
The ruins are very close to where we are staying so we felt like we had the place to ourselves.
The littles markets at the entrance are bustling with lots of things to purchase.
We did decide to hire a tour guide for our visit because we wanted to learn more about what we were seeing.
The ruins are stunning set right on the edge of the Caribbean Sea.
It’s a bit of a walk from the parking lot but the tropical atmosphere makes it nice.
The tunnel entrance was a highlight.
The kids did a pretty good job listening to our guide.
But when they got bored they just ran around in the fields.
This place is just gorgeous!
When we were done at the ruins we shared some Coco Frio, the kids were so excited to try drinking from a coconut, but they didn’t like it LOL.
We drove into town and found a little taco shop, the one Cory wanted to try was closed and the one we found was okay.
After lunch we decided to visit Grand Cenote that is really close to Tulum. I need to get our footage from our GoPro. This place was amazing, the Cenote was partially open to the sunshine and partially a cave. There were bats flying in and out, turtles and fishing swimming with us and stalagmites reaching down from above.
I was worried that it would be too cold or maybe scary in the caves with bats flying around, but she was in awe. Her face was lit up and she loved it all so much. Cannon loved it too, swimming around exploring everything, I was never worried about him not loving it.
We brought the kids’ life jackets from home so we always knew they would be safe have a jacket that fit well. This cenote did have jackets for adults and kids available. .
After swimming there were showers and places to change before going back to our rental.
When we got back Emmy and Cory were very worn out so they took a nap. Cannon and I decided to test out the roof top pool and hang out in the loft together.
For dinner we drove down to the beach and found the cutest little pizza place.
This had to be some of the best pizza I have ever had.
We all loved it!
We walked around a bit after dinner, said hello to the ocean, then went to bed way too late.
It was a very full, magical start to our trip!
