we got up super early in the morning and it was pouring outside. we were hoping it would stop raining once we arrive to tulum. we packed our bags and headed out our hotel but we couldnt even make it to our car due to the crazy thunderstorm/hurricane. the valet guy told us not to go cuz he said he’s been living in cancun for more than 20 years and he’s never seen anything crazy like this. its flooding everywhere due to their poor water system.

we went back into the hotel disappointed. nothing else to do besides eating so we went to grab breakfast.

we finished breakfast and went back to our room. i was literally staring at the window all day hoping the rain would stop. around 2:50pm the rain FINALLY stopped. i woke tingting up and we ran out of the hotel immediately. it was already too late for coba so we headed to tulum directly.

still flooding

mojito
the waiter asked us if we would like our drinks to be strong or weak. we said as strong as you can make it.

our mojito was still weak and i told our waiter when he checked on us. then he went to tell the owner to make me an even stronger drink.

this was a mezcal drink that the owner made for me. i could already feel it after 2 sips. dangggg i was afraid i wouldnt be able to make it out the door, but i finished it and was fine lol

the food at la cueva del chango was very good. i loved the natural setting of the restaurant. not only the service was outstanding, but also our waiter was one of the cutest mexicans we’ve seen during our entire trip.

night @ Playa Del Carmen

after we got back to cancun, we went to coco bongo. coco bongo is probably the most popular place to be for night life. it’s a dance club + show. open bar. the drinks were weak/fake. nobody gets drunk no matter how much they drink. i suggest you wear flats because its gonna be a long night standing unless you get a table. shows were good at the beginning but it gets boring fast especially when you are 100% sober. every 20 mins, a celebrity impersonator performed songs and with many of acrobats and dancers hooked up to flight harnesses.

  1. I have made the drive from Playa to Tulum a few times. Always an adventure but the beach at Tulum is one of the most beautiful in Mexico.
