I have heard great things about Tulum and was really looking forward to going. I didn't want to do a full day excursion which would have been Chichen Itza but I still wanted to get some history and explore some ruins.  What better excuse then to go to Tulum.  Plus they have amazing beaches all around.  Once we checked into the hotel and talked to our guest services they informed us that since we were VIP Tulum was included at no additional cost. How could we turn that down.

(This shirt was thrifted, as seen on my instagram)

The tour guide was fabulous, he really knew his information and was pretty entertaining on the ride down there as well.  I am glad that the first time we did Tulum was with a guide but if I was to return again I would want to go down on my own time and leisure.  The beach was gorgeous and the water was so blue that I really wanted to head down to the beach.  I felt the pressure of returning to our tour bus though, with only 30 minutes left over I didn't feel that was enough time to get down there and enjoy it.  Next time will be different but for my first time down to Tulum I am glad that it was with a tour guide.

Just look at the gorgeous white sand and blue water.

The iguanas were everywhere.  They had taken over the ruins and were sunbathing on top of them all.  I have a weird obsession with iguanas, I blame my brother since growing up we had 2. My husband was making fun of me because I took a picture of almost every iguana I saw and thought would turn out decent. I will only post 1 to spare you all though.

We found this liquor to be pretty funny. On the way home from the tour they tried selling everyone bottles with their picture on them.  We didn't end up buying it but I made sure to take a few pictures of the bottle first and me holding it up.  Anything to make some extra money off the tourist.
