Hanging out with the Thind's in Quintana Roo Mexico

All on track again


View World Trip 2012 - Actual on dariusz's travel map.

The last couple of days we've spent hanging out with our good friends Jeet and Kaurey and their two wonderful kids Mika and Veerjeet . We were planning to meet up with them in Mexico anyway, but the meeting took on a whole new urgency due to my streak of bad luck, as they were the only way I could get my Wallet and Camera back without risking shipping those items to Mexico. So thanks to the Thind family I am able to continue blogging and posting pictures, and you know, just generally continue. I can't thank you guys enough!!

It was great fun hanging out with friends from home one last time before leaving the relatively familiar surroundings of Quintana Roo Mexico for some new unexplored grounds. We met up with them at a cool little boutique hotel Las Ranitas in the Tulum hotel zone. Since the beaches are all public and the hotels not stuffy we just walked in, ordered a few drinks, and got to hang out on their beach chairs and equipment. This is the case for most of the places in the Tulum Hotel Zone so I highly recommend doing so!

The hotel we were at is very close to Sian Kaan reserve so the beach is left in all its untouched palm fringed glory.

This guy seems to be really enjoying it too

We enjoyed a really tasty lunch at Las Ranitas

Then took a "stroll" down the beach to work it off.

We then decided to switch locations for dinner and check our Charlies in downtown Tulum. Our friends took the sensible approach of taking a cab, but myself and Kristine decided this would be a more interesting form of transportation.

Only 45 minutes later we were able to join our friends in Centro Tulum for some awesome Mexican grub. All joking aside getting around the Tulum area on a bicycle is really the way to go. It's very easy because they've built special bike paths that take you almost all the way from Tulum centro to the Tulum Hotel Zone with all the best beaches.

Today we climbed a giant Mayan pyramid, and tomorrow we're off to Belize, but for more on that you'll have to wait for the next blog post :) So click on the "Subscribe" link on the right to get emails each time we post a new one!
