Tulum: Coastal Cliffs, Centuries-old Ruins, and Octopus. Oh my!

Mexico Part 2: Tulum! Coastal cliffs, centuries-old ruins, and octopus, oh my!

Octopus at Encanto Cantina in Tulum, Yucatan, Mexico.

Tulum is one of those locales that you know is a special place once you step foot on its soil. While we didn’t have much time in town, Adrian and I were swept away.

Not literally off the cliffs with breathtaking views of the Caribbean sea or anything.

But figuratively? We were enthralled with its natural beauty, itss rich history [the ruins are a must-see]….

…. and you guessed it, the FOOD!

Yep, Tulum offers coastal cuisine at its finest - like the octopus from Encanto Cantina? Oh so YUM! Or maybe you want a little turf with your 🐙? No problem. Steak gorditas have got you covered.

We’re looking forward to spending more time in Tulum on our next visit to the Yucatan. Until then, we’ll be dreaming of its warm breezes and fresh seafood!
