I recently got to go on a much needed vacation.
Now that all of 30a is gearing up for all you spring breakers 2011, all I can think about is how much I want to be back on my very own beach get-away.
This is where I went:
Here is TULUM, MEXICO...and it is fabulous!!!!
Here on 30a (Rosemary, Dune Allen, Blue Mtn, Seaside, Watercolor, etc), many people think we have one of the prettiest white sandy beaches in the world. I happen to be one of those believers, but Tulum gives us a pretty good run for our money.
Having never been to Tulum, I packed for a typical Carribean-ish vacation. Sundresses, silk tops, cover-ups and bathing suits. As we turned onto the beach front road of Tulum, I quickly realized all the silk stuff was just taking up room in my suitcase when I should have put more tees and shorts.
Tulum is an eco-friendly very raw bohemian beach town. Super cool yet casual, and the most amazing food and drinks I have ever had.
Most of the restaurants were open air like this one, Hartwood. Wood burning stoves and everything freshly picked from the garden that day. Here I had a watermelon jalapeno margarita. Yummmm
Sunrise...I caught it every morning. It was breath taking.
One of the Mayan Ruins. We climbed to the top...over 13 stories. Coming down was even scarier.
Came home with some hammocks..not sure why, but they are everywhere.
This was the most scared I have been in a LONG time. I had to jump into that water above, after walking through the jungle, passing a Mayan with a machete and no telling what other creatures I stepped on in my Rainbows...eekkkkk!
But once you are in and swim a little ways....it is magical
Great book....Keith Richards "Life"
My fav restaurant.
If you are thinking chips and salsa..it's Mexico..Nope, this is what they brought even before we ordered.
So what did I wear:
Love Sam tops with shorts were perfect for day or night.
Tibi Swim 2011 is so cute.
Patterson J Kincaid dresses were ideal
Vince denim shorts
James Perse tees & tanks
House of Harlow wedges..only 1 night
Such a wonderful trip. If you have the chance..go to Tulum. Pack light; lots of bathing suits. And beware, most people aren't wearing anything on the beach.
