OCTOBER 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way from Tulum to Mahahual by public transport. Tulum was a pleasant surprise. It is not a ‘picturesque’ town but it has a good ‘vibe’. In Tulum I stayed below GRANDPAcking Standard in a cheap hostel: The Weary Traveller. The Weary Traveller is a Backpacker Hostel. But a reasonably clean and pleasant one. I couldn’t afford a hotel in Tulum and I wanted spare cash to visit some ruins and to dive some cenotes. It was time to move south to Mahahual. So far, in Mexico, I have stayed on the ‘well […]

This was one of the best value for money places that I have stayed in so far in Mexico. It was time to move south to Tulum.

SEPTEMBER 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way south from Isla Mujeres down the Mexican Caribbean Coast via Playa Del Carmen to Tulum. The Yucatan Peninsula is famous for it Cenotes: a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. You can snorkel the cenotes or SCUBA dive them. Some can be snorkelled or SCUBA dived. Some can only best be SCUBA dived. Some of the best cenotes are in and around Tulum … so, I decided to SCUBA dive 3 in one day. THE OPTIONS: There are several dive shops in […]

SEPTEMBER 2016: Click here to read our Mexico Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way south from Isla Mujeres down the Mexican Caribbean Coast via Playa Del Carmen to Tulum. In Tulum, there are 2 famous local sites: Tulum (itself) and Coba. TULUM RUINS: I was staying in a hostel in Tulum so I went to the Tulum Ruins first. My hostel rented out bicycles for MXP80 / day … which is a reasonable price in Mexican tourist areas.The Tulum Ruins are an easy 3km cycle from the centre of Tulum. You cycle about 2kms north on the main road and, then, cut down a […]
