Photo Friday: Paletas in Tulum

Posted by Ted on Mar 23, 2012 in Food & Drinks, Photography, Travel

My wife and I recently went to Tulum, Mexico for our babymoon vacation. We stayed at a lovely little guesthouse, el Mestizo, at the end of the beach road near the entrance to the Sian Ka’an biosphere. Our 2nd-story cabana overlooked an azure sea, with the sounds of crashing waves a constant comfort. Barefoot, we would walk down the beach for breakfast or lunch.

We swam in 6 cenotes (4 cavern, 1 open, 1 semi-open), saw 2 ruins (Tulum, Ek’ Balam), and snorkeled with sea turtles.

However, the best thing may have been this shop selling all manner of tasty frozen fruit pops, called paletas.
