We were a little chagrined when we arrived in Tulum and our old favorite restaurant Casa Banana, which was authentic and quaint when we last visited, had turned into a full-on New York club scene with fashionistas and pop music blasting.  We heard that the secret was out but we never imagined this would happen!

But, we quickly learned how to avoid the Tulum hipster scene and find the same magical experience we had the first time around.

Magical indeed.  We found new ruins, new cenotes, and new restaurants, but those same old Caribbean vibes still abound. And that water, don’t get us started on that water…
