I found my perfect paradise- Take me back!
I have too many tips to write them all down here but my top 10 was:
The sound healing journey at Uno Astrolodge- It was one of the most relaxing and interesting experiences of my life! Next time in Tulum this is where I will stay for at least a few nights as they also have some small bungalows. I only had time to try the ecstatic dance class and the astral traveling meditation which both were life changing but all other classes looked amazing as well.
The new years brunch at the fantastic Casa Gorilla where we stayed for the first week- such amazing people, food, music and happiness.
The Tuna tataki and the Ccviche at Ahau was out of this world- I think I got addicted..
The food at Hartwood was amazing as well as the place in itself and the Passion in the jungle drink was the best coctail in town- I’ve had my share for a year or so.
To spend a day at the beach at Be Tulum- fantastic food, great music and not too crowded but still fantastic people watching
The food at El Tabano..The poblano pepper crepes, the stuffe poblano pepper in almond sauce, the guacamole salad, the avocado soup…Can go on forever- we practically lived here and tried all courses on the menu.
The ceviche at El Camello in Tulum town- best and biggest ceviche I have ever had.
The morning runs and afternoon walks on the mileslong beach
The yoga at Yoga Shala- finally I learned to love the downwardfacing dog!
Oh and last..The Flying circus new years party with Dop and Blond:ish- wow! Dancing barefoot on the beautiful beach with thousands of other people to the best music and the sun rising above the water- I can definitely live and love on that until the next new year♥
Not easy to get to but once there you don’t want to leave this beautiful highland valley surrounded by pine forest.
We had our base in the colonial city San Cristóbal de las Casas and from there we took day trips to Zinacantán and Chamula which was fantastic for fabric and embroidery inspiration. It was in Zinacantán we got invited to a small little house where a woman made us the best tortilla I have ever tried- one of the best moments of the whole trip!
My top tip would be to eat at the hidden quesadilla gem with no name – It was so good we had to go back the night after and I still dream about the perfect hand-made corn tortillas that were folded over generous portions of marinated fresh vegetables and cheese, and served alongside a trio of superb and original salsas. Such a cozy, original and tasty little restaurant with the best prices we ate for in our whole trip- Definitely worth the 48 hour ride from Stockholm to get there!
