I’m home from my vacation but I thought to give you a rundown on all the fun things to do and fun things we did on a Carnival Cruise!
I’ve told you about my first two days and the bamboo massage and facial; I highly recommend btw! This post will focus on our day at Cozumel and Tulum!
We arrived at Cozumel around 8am and were able to get off the ship to take a taxi and meet our tour at another pier. We took the tour through Shipmate Shore Excursions-shoreexcursionsgroup.com Tour of Tulum/ruins. We took a ferry to mainland and then a 40 minute van ride to Tulum. The ruins are amazing-and our local guide told us so many interesting details about the Mayan people, their customs, calendar, and symbols of the ruins- it is not to be missed if you ever go! I also got my daily steps goal plus a few thousand walking around.
There is a steep stair case behind the ruins leading to the most gorgeous beach and I played in the ocean for about an hour. The sand is like powdered sugar it’s so soft and the ocean is a brilliant turquoise. It was amazing; and looking up at the ruins while a ways out in the water was spectacular! I didn’t think to take my water proof case out there I was having so much fun, so no pic 😦
We then made our way back to the van meeting place where our guides had picked us up some lunch for the drive back. I was famished but love Tulum. I think I want to live there! 😊
We finished the day by taking the ferry back to Cozumel and boarding the ship (but first I found a “day of the dead” sarong to match my red swimsuit-life is good!
