I will never for the life of me understand renting a car and why it takes so long. We waited an hour to pick up the car that I had rented. It’s not like it’s a brand new car! This process has to be improved! The drive was going to be about an hour and a half. The roads were good we stopped for supplies, limes, Mezcal and ice and a beer. The turn off to Tulum started out smooth but then turned into a bumpy dirt road. Traffic moved slowly, which was fine since we were checking everything out. So many shops and restaurants and hotels. Very jungly. Is that a word? We had booked a place on the beach with a pool Nueva Lida.
We ventured out to the beach and watched the sun set then onto the dirt road, barefoot to a little taco place. Had amazing tacos and mezcal topped off with a special treat of crickets, mezcal and limon. The crickets are a fun salty, crispy treat.
