Birthday in Tulum

Everyone loves a good birthday party, but I wanted mine to be on a beach.


Living in Texas, my beach options within driving distance are limited, so I grabbed two of my best friends (and the boyfriend) and we took our asses to Tulum, Mexico.

Obviously this is a huge blogger spot, and for good reason! The food was amazing,

We stayed in an amazing Airbnb that was essentially a three apartment private compound complete with balconies, a private pool, and hammocks. All for us.

This gave us a huge sense of security because the entire thing was gated off so that no one could get in. It had room for us to park our rental car so that we didn’t have to worry about it getting damaged, and the walls were sturdy and high. I know that a big concern when traveling to Mexico is safety, and our little compound was perfect.

When we were out adventuring, we made sure to hit the big two things to check out in Tulum: The Ruins, and Cenotes! Our cenote adventure consisted of visiting two different ones on a private tour through Airbnb (DM me for the link, it was AMAZING)

We also decided to check out the much talked-about Azulik, Coco Tulum, and Paradise Beach.

A word to the wise: almost nowhere takes credit card, so we made sure to get plenty of pesos before we got there! And while you don’t need a ton of Spanish knowledge when you’re in popular destinations, a “gracias” was definitely thrown around a lot
