    I love it when people are honest and say that they just thought a destination was ‘meh’. Great photos but understand what you mean that some places can be underwhelming!

      I believe in showing both sides of travel for sure. 🙂

    We didn’t like Tulum. The ruins have great views, but…no shade, too hot and too many tourists, even first thing in the morning. I don’t have any desire to go back.
    I agree…skip Tulum and go to Akumal. Thanks to your suggestion last year we went there, swam with the turtles and had a fab time with them. Loved it! We even skipped the cenotes to go back to Akumal for a second day of hanging out with turtles.
    As a ruin, I would definitely take the time to drive to Calakmul. It is not a day trip from Tulum but…there are NO people! And the ruins are really interesting, they are covered in trees as the jungle is reclaiming its territory back. Tulum ruins..not so much.

      Yeah, Tulum ruins totally not worth it. I haven’t been to Calakmul, though. Sounds great. Really enjoyed Ek Balam, and Coba is nice, too.

    We will definitely visit Akumal next time we’re down that way, we’ve heard so many good things. I really enjoyed Tulum, very relaxing, great beaches. Id go back again if I was in need of some R&R!

      Akumal is so enjoyable. And if you’re there during turtle hatching season, you might get to see that which is amazing.

    We totally agree, Akumal to snorkel with sea turtles and go to some Mayan Ruins you can actually climb, like Ek Balam or Coba, but there is a cheap Chinese restaurant we liked in Tulum
