While in Tulum Warren took a scuba diving course which took up five days so Orlaith and I had a fair amount of free time on our hands to explore the area on our own.
We decided that since we hadn't been to the beach in Tulum yet that's where we'd go for a couple of days. Our map showed the beach not being too far from the high street so we set off from home on foot. Two hours and approximately three and a half miles later we reached the beach, about to collapse from the heat with Orlaith in tears having finished about a litre of water on the journey. We went into the closest beach club we could find and ordered fresh juices and fresh water and collapsed on some cushions in the shade over looking the water.
