So.... better late than never right? 2 months after returning from Playa del Carmen, here are my touristy photos (+ an outfit) from the Mayan Ruins of Tulum and one of the nearby Cenotes. The day sure didn't start off on the right foot with a tumultuous thundershower that almost deterred us from visiting the ruins, but the more optimistic ones from the group insisted we trek through the rain. So through the jungle we went, and wouldn't you know that the very moment we passed through the stone entrance of the ruins, the rain stopped. Proof that it pays to have a sunny outlook. After a guided tour that I mostly didn't pay attention to due to the fact that I was using a super fun wide angle lens to photograph the scene, we visited the absolutely breathtaking beach that separates the ruins from the ocean. Following this, we stopped by the Dos Ojos cenote, which is a naturally occurring water hole in the middle of a jungle... Also quite the sight! Instead of diving into the frigid water, I once again took to photographing the natural wonder. For this day chock-full of sightseeing, I wore bright ikat patterned jacquard hotpants with a vintage crocheted blouse. Easy, breezy, and paired with some highly unexciting flat sandals, not pictured. Here's to hoping that us Canadians will be able to trot around in this little clothing soon enough! Happy March!
