31 Dec TULUM + AKUMAL
For me, lightweight loungewear is the only way to look semi-chic in humid climates. I love the sun, loathe humidity – and would honestly rather be in my Triangl bikini for the entire vacay.
But for those non-beach excursions in Akumal + Tulum I opted for these breezy staples:
We stayed the week at Tao Residences in Akumal. A quiet, private community – ideal for some R&R but close enough to the action in Tulum (20 minute drive). Plus, Tao includes an on-site spa [try their holistic massage], jungle cafe + lap pools.
OFF THE BEATEN PATH
An absolute must – off-roading to Cenotes Dos Ojos in Quintana Roo. Although the water was a bit chilly, we took the plunge sans wetsuits. Go in the early morning to avoid droves of tourists [and for a peaceful swim].
Head to Chamico’s for authentic beach cuisine. Quite a drive down down a long dirt road [with no signage], but certainly worth the trip. We opted for a spread of ceviche + margs. You can’t beat this gorgeous view too!
