    Cancún Restaurants

    Our taxi drops us just about 2 feet from the entrance to La Parilla in Cancun. Talk about curbside service. Enter into an open air borderline outdoor restaurant, as the walls are not exactly walls but shaped and curled cut outs of wrought iron. It was late for lunch, about 3 pm, but the restaurant was still pretty full. Our friendly waiter took our...

    So, I know what you may be thinking, I hit the century mark on countries and I go a little soft, perhaps a bit too trusting. However, rest assured, no unnecessary risks were taken.

    Tulum Things to Do

    Tulum is probably best visited in the morning before all the tourist buses show up and before the scorching sun starts beating down on you since most of it is uncovered. It's hard to find official information about anything in the Yucatan but I believe it's open from 8am to 5pm and I'm sure it currently costs 59 pesos or $6USD as of December 2014....

    Tulum Restaurants

    The main street of Tulum is simply teeming with different Restaurants. Sadly many of them are overpriced and generic and seem to pander to tourist expectations of high prices. My expectations of Mexican restaurants is that the food is authentic and the price is low. Don Cafeto's is the only restaurant in Tulum that fits the bill. I judge a good...

My parents had been to Chankanaab many years ago and don't recall paying anything to access the beach.

But I always assumed that it was a Cozumel institution. It has come as something of a blow to discover that this is a kind of chain and Cozumel's Carlos'n Charlies was maybe...

    Last visit December 2014Yal-Ku is a beautiful natural lagoon near Akumal, it reminds me a lot of Xel-ha when we visited it back in the late 1980s, before it became commercialized with a large admission fee and lots of people. You can swim all the way out to the sea but we saw the most fish right near where people were getting in and feeding the...

    When walking from Grupo Coba to Nohoc-Mul, the road spilts several times to access different locations. The first split is a trail on the right. Bikes and Pedi-taxi's are not permitted this way and blocked off. This is a great little walk and actually a short cut to get to Nohoc-Mul.

    You can do either place as a half day excursion or both in one day. We did Coba first in the morning. Coba is only suitable for those with reasonable mobility as a long walk through the Forrest and around the ancient Mayan ruins takes it out of you. It's also very humid and hot despite for the best part being in the shade from the trees. You get a...
