Hmmm….where to begin? On our second day here we checked into the beautiful eco-friendly Azulik Resort and I must confess, they know how to make an impression. The grand entrance took my breath away.
Our welcome guide Andrea took us around the property stopping by for a mayan welcoming ritual before taking us to our luxury sea villa.
Our villa was absolutely breathtaking complete with a grand bed, views of the caribbean to enjoy from an outdoor mosaic lined bath bowl with a swing and another swing bed for star gazing.
After soaking in the mesmerizing beauty of this sea villa we headed out to Hartwood to fill our growling stomachs with their delicious mayan/mexican food. Being aware of its popularity, I had made reservations in advance and it did not disappoint.
We had papaya empanadas and stuffed peppers with refreshing cocktails in this dimly lit setting. Of course we had to stop by Gitano on the way back for DJ Night. But we called it an early night and returned to our moonlit and candle lit room soon. Yeah there is no electricity barring a charging point and a small fan. And a unique way to order room service.
Next morning, we got up early to see the sunrise. It was magical. After spending some time soaking in the beautiful views, we made our way to the Mayan ruins of Tulum located nearby.
This walled Mayan city was the only one to be built on a coast. There are several pyramid shaped structures and a castillo on top of a hill but the best part is the turquoise beach that reveals itself once you are on the cliff. The cool breeze was a relief in the hot mexican weather.
On our way back we decided to indulge in some tacos at Charly’s tacos coz Mexico…Duh! We roamed around the city for a while and headed back to our beautiful oasis for our last night here. The rustic charm of this place with incredible views is unmatched for.
In the morning, it was time to bid adieu to this laid-back boho town. So we decided to get up early and enjoy the beach before breakfast.
We headed to the colorful beach restaurant at Zamas for breakfast and enjoyed our sumptuous huevos rancheros by this beautiful rocky beach before it was finally time to say goodbye.
