Day trip to Tulum during pandemic

Hey there! I fell like it’s been awhile since I shared any itineraries here. However, even in the middle of pandemic, my husband and I couldn’t stay in one place for long and decided that it was time to do a little trip. Besides, both of us worked from home, so we thought it was a good idea to spend a week or two somewhere else. So, our new adventure began. We spent 10 days in Cancun and it was about time to visit Tulum. To be fair, I have never been to Tulum before. Every time we visit Cancun, we had a whole itinerary planned, so there was no time. However, this time Tulum was on the list.
A few things to consider: we had completely different itinerary planned, but we had to change it. The plan was to visit Cenotes (we only visited Cenotes “Dos Ojos” before, so we were curious about the rest), but when we arrived, we noticed that the people did next to nothing to prevent spread of Covid-19, so we changed our minds. Also, we wanted to have breakfast at “Raw Love Cafe” but the line to enter was way too long. So, it’s a good thing we had plan B.
Tulum and Covid-19: Tulum was full of people, it seemed like there was no pandemic going on in the world. That being said, it was full of tourists that did not wear masks. On the streets, restaurants and even beach, it seemed like Tulum was “mask-free zone”. I feel like it is definitely more regulated in Cancun. So, we decided to do just a few things to go back.

  • Breakfast at Del Cielo where we found the best açaí bowl I have ever tried! Fast service, delicious food and amazing atmosphere! Such a happy place to start the day off right!
  • Snorkeling at Yal-Ku Lagoon. We decided to go for one activity that day that turned out to best experiences of our lives! We made sure that Covid-19 precautions were taken before going any further. The Lagoon is accessible to everyone including children, and there are tours as well as life jackets available for rent. I would highly suggest bringing cash because there is almost no signal at Yal-Kul Lagoon for the terminals to work. However, we got lucky and were able to pay with a card. Keep in mind that Lagoon is located next to a popular Akumal beach, so it might be a good idea to visit it as well. Here is a little preview of what you might see while snorkeling:

There is nothing like a fresh delicious and filling food after a day of snorkeling! We absolutely loved this place and everything it has to offer.

  • … and we couldn’t leave without visiting Downtown, and saying good bye while watching sunsets and pelicans.

XX,
Gena
