Happy Wedded Wednesday!
Today’s Wedding Wednesday post is part two of our honeymoon adventures in Mexico.
As soon as we booked our trip to Playa del Carmen, we knew we had to check out the ruins in Tulum.
So upon our arrival to our hotel we booked a full day excursion.
A half-day trip with guided tour of the ancient city of Tulum, and the second half of the day would be a two hour snorkeling adventure.
This place was absolutely breathtaking! These amazing ruins were nestled right up to this gorgeous beach.
It had the softest sand I’ve ever felt and the bluest water I’ve ever seen.
I could see why this place was such a treasured spot.
I honestly wish I could remember more about the significance of the different buildings, but there was so much to take in visually I had a hard time listening to our tour guide.
You can peer over the cliff of the ruins and find this lovely site.
Another side of the gorgeous beach, which they opened up to the tourists.
It was so hot out during our tour and I was really regretting that I had not worn my swimsuit under my clothes.
The water looked so refreshing!
The tour was short and sweet.
The city of Tulum is actually quite smaller than I had imagined. But it was so worth it to have taken the tour!
After our morning of touring the ruins, it was finally time to take it to the open water.
This was my first experience at snorkeling!
I would love to tell you all that it was an amazing experience for me, but truthfully I struggled through it.
There were some amazing things we saw though and that I cannot deny.
Check out this sea turtle! He was so cute. 🙂
My struggle with the whole snorkeling was I sort of started having an anxiety attack at the start.
I was feeling super claustrophobic with the mask on my face and the snorkeling tube in my mouth. And then I also started to feel a little seasick from the rolling waves.
J. Alabama thinks I might have inhaled too much salt water and that was why I wasn’t feeling too hot.
Either way, I’m glad to say I tried snorkeling and the experience of seeing below the water was awesome. But I’m not sure I have that much desire to do it again.
I appreciated that our fun filled day of site seeing and underwater adventures led us to this beautiful beach.
This is exactly what I envision as my perfect paradise.
Now I only wish I was still there right now with my husband and one of those fru-fru drinks with the little umbrella in it.
Ahhh…but back to reality friends! The vacation is sadly over.
Have you ever been snorkeling? How was your experience?
I’m also excited to announce that we will meeting with our wedding photographer next week for the “official unveiling” of all of our wedding photos!! Expect a few more heavy photo posts in the near future.
