TULUM BY BIKE AND BUS – TO THE CARIBBEAN BEACH
One of the main attractions at Tulum is our grand children. Here I am with three year old Julian who is learning English and proudly came to me to demonstrate his new linguistic talents exclaiming; “Oh my God!”
Mama Grisel and Flor Amber are more than just mother and daughter, they are affectionate pals and their love beams out in glowing radiance.
How could you not help but love these precious people who warmly embrace your presence with genuine affection?
A blow-me-down breeze at the beach kept the bugs away our first three days there but turned the Caribbean into a hydrotherapy bath that brutalized our bodies in seconds…but it was salubriously warm and beguiling enticing.
Our thirty-three year old happy-go-lucky Güero fits perfectly into the Tulum beach-scene where he goes with the seasonal flow and does guided tours to the sea reefs and fresh water cenotes.
This is our lovely friend Hilda with her prize son Christian. Hilda and her husband Felix are owners of the resort Puenta Piedra where we stay. Twelve year old Christian is already a certified scuba diver and enthusiastic deep sea fisherman.
The storm also devastated the sea bottom as you can see by these sponges that were torn from the off-shore coral reef that is nearly devoid of life now.
Our bicycles get us to see and explore things that most tourists fly by.
This is a part of the wild tropical Mexican jungle that is here to see and enjoy if you only go slow enough. Our bicycle tours have added an interesting dimension to life.
Salty sea air is not kind to man made contrivances and rapidly reduces it all to rust.
These enterprising young kids turn somebody else’s garbage into spend able cash.
