Tulum is located about 130 kilometers south of Cancun on Mexico's Caribbean coast. I had the great privilege to go there recently (thank you, Authentic Form and Function). The beaches of Tulum are everything you'd hope a beach to be. The sand is like fine sugar leading to an ocean that is a magnificent gradient of the lightest to the richest blue. The coast is lined with groves of palm trees providing shade and ambiance for the restaurants and beach clubs populating the area. Unlike what I've been told about Cancun, Tulum still feels like a small beach town - it is not overrun with mega-resorts, and boasts a food scene that makes choosing where to eat for each meal difficult. Bring me all of the pico de gallo, and all of the margaritas. Why can't all of the world be a beach? 

Here are some of my favorite shots from the trip.
