Day 1 - 4 Dec 2020

Cancun International Airport

Cancún, Cancun International Airport

Content: If you are traveling with friends I highly suggest to rent a car. My friend waited for me to arrive and picked me up with the rental car. She chose a low insurance coverage and our daily rent was around $30 per day. She drove all the way to tulum and we arrived close to midnight. We messaged our concierge at the hotel to make sure we would have a smooth check in process.

Hotel Casa Coyote

Tulum, Hotel Casa Coyote

Content: We arrived close to midnight. We messaged our concierge at the hotel to make sure we would have a smooth check in process. Overall a great hotel at a reasonable price for the location, Tulum hotel zone. Very close to the follow your dream sign and other well known hotels, in case you want to go enjoy the day at their beach club. This hotel is located facing the jungle not the beach side. We chose it to spend our first night since it’s so close to everything we wanted to do it the next day.

Location: Tulum Beach

Content: This cenote closes 15 minutes before the closing time so keep that in mind. There are two areas in this cenote. Don’t forget to give yourself enough time here because believe me, time flies by really quick between pictures and swimming. Price was 300 Mexican pesos when I went. Closing time: ~ 4:45 pm Preferably go in the morning.

Content: After the chichen itza tour we drove to chiquilla to take the ferry to Holbox. The tickets are around $11 usd you can either pay in pesos or dollars. We made it to the 8:30 pm ferry and arrived to Holbox after 15 minutes or so, the weather was really bad and floods in Holbox very often so I highly recommend to just being a backpack, no wheeled carry ons.

Location: Isla Holbox

Day 3 - 6 Dec 2020

Holbox Island

Isla Holbox, Holbox Island

Content: We made it to Holbox and the island was completed flooded due to the storm. We were lucky to find a taxi that made it to our hotel and arrived to casa iguana so last minute. They were wonderful and so accommodating, we made reservations right there. The front desk guy was 10/10 very kind, friendly and empathic.

Location: Playa del Carmen

Day 6 - 9 Dec 2020

Laboratorios laclicsa

Playa del Carmen, Laboratorios laclicsa

Content: The test took literally just a minute and didn’t need to wait. Price was around $130 usd around that time when there wasn’t covid testing offered all over tulum for less so if you don’t have to come to Playa del Carmen for any reason then don’t choose this lab, we opted to go to cenote azul afterwards so it worked well.

Content: As of December 2020 entrance to this part of the Azulik hotel was free, I’ve seen somewhere else recently that there is a fee. If it was free I would definitely go if i had to pay I’ll pass as this place is really small and literally only went in there for 5-10 min to take pictures. There is an option to get into the bar and nests that I’ll explain in detail on the second Mexico tour I’ll be sharing on this app:)
