Riviera Maya

For Christmas break this year, I spent 5 days in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico with Chris. It was the first time I have been down to see him in Central America since he started working there. I immediately reaped the benefits. The first night there he took me to an awesome local little restaurant and we had chorizo y queso tacos. I wish I could recreate those here!

Originally I thought we were going to stay in Cancun but we decided to stay in Playa del Carmen instead which was such a great choice. After a wild night celebrating my new job contract which involved fire dancers and liters of Long Island iced teas, we were ready to start exploring. Our hostel room had a private balcony overlooking the Gulf which was insanely beautiful. Playa is such a cute little beach town with awesome cafes and shopping (I bought a Panama hat and sarong).

Chris took me to Tulum which was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!
We were also lucky enough to get in…
