travels:  tulum, mexico

Before I dive into this post, I’d like to take a moment to apologize for the lack of blog posts in the past few weeks!  Since I last posted A LOT has transpired.  We flew back to Oklahoma for my grandmother’s funeral, celebrated Valentine’s Day and our one year wedding anniversary, I’ve been busy planning my sister’s upcoming Bachelorette in Vegas, and we attended a destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico.  So blogging took a back seat, but I vow to write at least one new post each week from here on out!  Today I want to share with you the four days of pure bliss we recently experienced in Mexico…

We were beyond excited when JC was asked to be a groomsman at a good friend’s wedding in Tulum, Mexico!  We love to travel, love weddings, and really love the bride and groom, so not going was not an option.  I’ve been to Mexico quite a few times in the past, usually staying at big, all-inclusive resorts, but Tulum was such a different experience and is an such an amazing “off the beaten path” destination that I knew I wanted to share about it here.

Tulum is a sleepy little beach town with one main drag of “mom and pop” feeling hotels, bars, restaurants, and shops.  You can walk, bike, or scooter (a few amigos from our group rented scooters – only $40 a day!) along the main drag, it’s completely safe.  All of the various events that made up the wedding weekend were at different locations and it was so much fun to explore the town!
