Finally had a chance to put up some photos from last year’s Tulum/Las Vegas trip (tap to see full gallery).
Tulum, in Mexico, is a beautiful beach area about two hours drive south of Cancun. If you want to avoid a Bali-like tourist experience, I highly recommend driving out of Cancun immediately after you fly in, and bypassing Playa del Carmen entirely. Just drive an extra hour and get the same — if not better — beaches, with far fewer people.
Las Vegas is not a beautiful beach in Mexico, but a touristy city in the middle of the desert — great in an entirely different way. Given my Las Vegas experience was not with the wolf pack but with my wife and mother-in-law, it was fantastic! (I’m not much into “girls to my room in 20 mins…”)
It was a good couple of weeks.
