    Great article. Thanks – The beaches have been invaded by seaweed and are not inviting. Not sure if this is on Cozumel as well.

    Great article! I’m baffled why people don’t rave about Calakmul more.

    I haven’t been there yet, but will do so in November. It is a place that will probably bring you the closest you will ever come to feel like Indiana Jones and feel like you’ve gone back in time to the Maya empire.

    Add on that the possibility of seeing rainforest wildlife then you’ve got me hooked!

    Joe, I love your article! Especially the mosquito warning and the ADO bus. Great help! I do have one quick question, I’m really not good swimmer… well, actually, I don’t swim at all haha but the shark and turtles trips sound amazing. Do you think it is possible for me to do it and check it or I shouldn’t and sign up for swimming classes ASAP.

    Thanks for the help!

    Ps: have you visited Taxco? Puebla? So much beauty!

      SORRY! I spelled your name wrong. A million apologies. I am very enthusiastic about this trip that I’m writing like a maniac.

    Hey Jo! Really enjoying your posts, probably spent over an hour going through them. Not only is it informative but it is creative in its delivery, setting yourself apart from the undeniably vast sea of travel blogging! I was wondering if you could suggest the best way to get to Tulum from Cancun airport, ADO bus? Cheers and happy travels ~
