Bring Me Back To Tulum
There is nothing better than to visit local bazars when are in a new place. Especially if that place is called Mexico. I talked before about how colorful is this country (you can see 13 more photos here) but today I want to explain what you should really buy and try when you are in Mexico, in particular in Tulum.
Mexico is famous around the world for its cult of dead and skulls. I’m one of the biggest fan of mexican skulls. I love their colors and how they are made. They are not frightful. Honestly they make me smile and it’s so funny to see how they have a representation of death of everything (I bought a cute “skull-dog” for my sister which is so hilarious!). To find Mexican skulls is absolutely easy. Local stores are full of them. You just have to choose size, color and material (which is easier to say than to do!).
During my shopping I also found gorgeous blankets, made with different colors and with the typical Maya pattern. I took two of them and I have already an idea in mind how to use them.
If you are a etnic lover, shops are plenty of Maya masks and calendars and also ceramics are really cool.
If shopping makes you feel hungry, there are many places where to eat next to these shops. But I personally suggest to catch a taxi (they are not expensive) and to move to all restaurant along the beach. They are beautiful! Some of my favourites are Mi Amor Tulum (they have the best view on the Ocean!), BeTulum and Cenzontle. I ate divinely in these places. I wouldn’t recommend to go to Casa Banana. My husband got a horrible food poisoning. We ordered Guacamole and Ceviche. Posada Margherita is absolutely wonderful but the onwer is not the most friendly person on the earth! Expect to wait a long begore to get a table, but the food is absolutely amazing! There is also a fantastic little shop inside; extremely expensive but full of nice clothes and jewellery.
If you have ever been in Tulum, I would love to hear any further suggestions on places to see and what to do. I don’t exclude to come back to Mexico one day because we really loved it!
