Yesterday we talked with a guy at the tourist information point by the ruins of Tulum about a tour where you would get the entrance to the ruins, and later you go to a beach where you take a boat that takes you outside the ruins so you can get the photo there, and after goes to the reefs, lens you snorkel equipment and guides you there. That would cost 35 dollars, about 410 pesos. Without the entrance to the ruins, if you have a student credential, it would cost 350 pesos.
So we were going there in the morning today, we woke up around 8 and we were looking for a place where to eat breakfast first. On the way there we saw a stand where they sold snorkeling tours, so we went there and asked how much it would cost, and they would do the tour for 250 pesos. We kept on looking for yet a place to eat breakfast, and passed by another stand where they had snorkeling tour, and they would do the same for 150 pesos. Wow! So worth it. We got that instead. Getting your own entrance the ruins will cost 60 pesos, so we saved around 200 pesos each. We are very happy! Haha.
It was fun to snorkel too, not the same as doing scuba dive, but still it’s a window to the other world, much closer than just to swim. Duilio was very excited haha. We saw small dishes, coral reefs, sea cucumber.. haha. Later we walked along the beach the way back, took a siesta, went down to the private beach, read our books… now I’m writing this and soon we’re going to eat something close by where they have internet. We are planning on staying here until Sunday and then go to Isla Mujeres or something. We’ll see!
