Posada Margherita – Tulum, Mexico

Posada Margherita

Posada Margherita in Tulum, Mexico is among the top spots to eat in Tulum. Posada was one of our most memorable meals. We’d read of the ‘Pasta Nazi’, as the locals call him. Alessandro Carozzino, an Italian ex-pat who runs the hotel and restaurant with his wife is rather stringent about the rules. But then I would be too if I made fresh pasta by the individual order. This was a rather unexpected beach meal! … Continue reading

So our adventure begins with a little bit of a hangover from the previous night.  Erik, … Continue reading

The closest and easiest to get to for us was the Gran Cenote.  Gran Cenote is located just outside of downtown Tulum on the road to Coba.  Jen and I decided to visit Gran Cenote … Continue reading

Tulum Ruins – Tulum, Mexico

Tulum Ruins, Mexico

While in Tulum Jen and I were lucky enough to experience the Tulum Ruins.  They are located on the very North End of Beach Rd.  Beach Rd. dead ends at the ruins.  Easy to get to by walking, biking or taking a cab.  We walked the beach part way and then were forced by terrain and fences to walk the rest along Beach Rd.  It was a beautiful twenty minute walk. We had read that … Continue reading
