On the First night in Tulum, during our Night Stroll by the beach (with our flashlight) we found something moving on the sand. We couldn't believe our eyes! We saw newly hatched baby Sea Turtles by the beachside migrating towards the ocean. This was just an extraordinary experience and felt like just watching a Disney Animation like Moana! We got very lucky on our first night. The Beach Security was capturing them in a bucket since the ocean wave was too high for them to jump in at the moment. We helped him capture hundreds of Baby Sea Turtles into a big basket until the wave die down. It was an unforgettable moment on the first night at Tulum Beach.
Our hotel offers free bike rental, so we biked out to get a closer look around. Since Tulum has a bike-friendly environment, it is better to travel around with a bike than with a car. There are many bike rentals around so if you plan on going to Tulum, make sure to rent a bike to get around. We ride our bike all the way out to the beginning part of the Tulum. Bike ride was great, except when I fell really bad from the bike, and hurt myself and my phone. This was our 2nd day in Tulum and for the rest of the trip, I didn't have my phone because it wasn't working.. but the “no phone situation" actually made us more focus on ourselves and beautiful scenery. Here's what we saw biking around :)
Cenote is a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. Especially associated with the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings. -Wikipedia
We went to a total of four Cenotes around our area during our trip including Cenote Cape-Ha (shown above). Too bad we couldn't took any underwater photos due to the unfortunate event on my phone. Cenote was an amazing experience you can only get in Mexico. This was our first Cenote experience and at first we were bit afraid to jump into the all-natural water without knowing how deep and what lives under. But once you get over your fear, you will find yourself swimming among the fishes and feel the sweet-refreshing water.
Hola from Tulum, Mexico!
We took a belated Honeymoon trip to Tulum, Mexico on the first week of November when the temperature started to slowly drop in New York. We stayed at Be Tulum Hotel- a beautiful jungle villa by the ocean for a week, and it was the most magical week we had in paradise. Our stay at Be Tulum was wonderful. People are friendly and very helpful during our stay. We ate a lot of tacos, swam at the Cenote, relaxed by the beach, and did many Mexican things under Tulum's bright sun. Part II coming up soon!
