Paradise, Found

16 Mar

There are some places in the world were words can not convey their beauty and the magic of being there. Tulum is one of those places.  I could write forever about the million shades of blue in the water, the perfect white sand that stretches for miles in either direction, the palm trees blowing in the wind, the gorgeous boutique hotels and cabanas that line the beach…. but what I really want to do is just show you how amazing this place is.

I can’t believe I get to call this place home for the next few days.  I am truly blessed, but for about $350 round-trip flight to Cancun, and about $20 a night for lodging, you too could find your very own Mayan paradise.  Sure you might share a bathroom with no hot water, or sleep in a rustic cabana with a sand floor, but when you open your windows to this every day it really doesn’t matter, does it?
