>> THIS IS MEXICO .. THE COLOURS OF MEXICO <<
Tulum captured my heart .. I hope the below snap shot shows just how magical this place truly is!
Along the back street parallel to the beach we spent hours stumbling across little boutiques and bars bursting with personality just like this one! We took a couple of cycle bikes out to explore and found plenty of opportunities to stop & refresh, soaking up the atmo with a cocktail on ice to rehydrate!!
Where ever we were in Tulum we just felt COOL!!
We were soaking up the sun and simply RELAXING on the most beautiful white sand beaches!! ... its easy to enjoy hammock life and SWAY when you're amongst a palm tree paradise.. !!
WHAT TO WEAR
Day time: Swimmers and a beach wrap - that's all!
Evening: Straight off the beach - salty hair, floaty dresses & flat sandals (or bare foot). Accessorise with tassels or some bohemian jewellery tattoos!
DREAM CATCH ME
The Nomade Tulum - what a perfect choice of accommodation!! Our cabana on the beach was paradise!!
WINE & DINE
To my coeliac delight , the majority of the menu at the Nomade was GLUTEN FREE!
My favourite cocktail .. Apple & Cinnamon Mojito - a must try if you have the pleasure of visiting this delightful paradise.
It is hard to chose from the various dining spots this place has to offer , each with their individual charm.
The seafood restaurant on the beach was my first choice for lunch or dinner! It's rustic charm set the perfect atmosphere for fresh grilled fish cooked over an open fire on the beach, accompanied with a cold glass of vino - pinch me!
Its all in the detail in the diner, absolute tassel heaven! Every where you look, this place is a visual feast for the eye! A different menu and vibe to the beach - it was our chosen location for breakfast! A table of health was served - fruit platters, superfood smoothies, granola bowls - made with LOVE!
Just when we thought we couldn't be any more relaxed ... we came across the moroccan lounge! An alternative dining experience with low/floor seating. When we didn't feel like venturing out, we would stay here for the tranquil live music and discussion groups - perfect for those free spirits.

SHOPPING & BOUTIQUES:
Tulum has some hidden Gems and if you are anything like me, you will enjoy getting lost in the boutiques and finding some special pieces that were meant for you! I love buying things on my travels that then hold precious memories when I'm home!
