On Friday we got the maid started at home and headed for Tulum to meet friends for the weekend. I had communicated with Shirlee and Carole on a Playa del Carmen discussion forum for years and we were headed down to meet them and to have a beach day with friends who live in Playa and other friends who were down from the States.
We have stayed on the beach road (Boca Paila) several time. This was our first time to stay in the pueblo, which is several kilometers from the beach. It was a totally different and nice vibe and we will stay there again, at the Posada del Luna Sur. The food was outstanding. We ate Friday night at an Argentinian steak house and had wonderful arrachera and Argentina style chorizo. The next night we ate the best tacos al pastor I have had in 11 years of traveling to Mexico – 4 of us filled ourselves for 123 pesos and the cost of a six-pack.
Drove back home today. Our new rental is feeling like home more than the short-term rental did, in part due to Kathy’s decorating with items we shipped down from the US and her own decorator and “designy” touches.
Here are some photos of the trip. We hung out the Hip Hotel beach club on Saturday
