I had never been to a real coconut beach before. They are cut up and sold as drinks on the boardwalk, but I wanted to climb the tree and try one myself (I didn't, but it looked like fun!).
We also went to the sleepy fishing village turned beach paradise of Costa Maya
We visited the ruins of Tulum, a thousand old archeological park that is now inhabited by iguanas like in the picture below. Tulum is a remarkable place, and most of the original structures are still intact.
It was 85+ degrees weather in Mexico and I was ready to change into my dress!
There was a beautiful beach at the cliffs below the site.
Mike and I are also planning a trip at the end of the year to visit London. I'm so excited for all the good things this year will bring and really happy to travel with my best friend.
Cheers to 2011!
