The real Yucatan, on beyond Cancun

“In the late afternoon breeze, turquoise waves are crashing against the tiny gray rocky point, palms fronds are swaying over it and a pelican keeps swooping over the crescent of snow-white beach like a diner who can’t decide what to pick from tonight’s menu. I lazily sway in the breeze too, deep in my hammock under a beach “umbrella” made of thatched palm fronds in a small, eco-friendly hotel, just south of the mesmerizing Maya ruins of Tulum, on Mexico’s Caribbean coast.”
