Sundays in Playa are just as you would imagine a Sunday in the caribbean: pure chill.
So let’s assume you have been in Playa for a while and decided to go out on a Saturday night, right? Dinner, nightclubs, maybe a walk down the beach and head back home . It doesn’t matter if you had a wild night or an easy one, Chez Celine is THE place to go for breakfast or a late brunch. With a french theme menu, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious and healthy options, the ones I strongly recommend are the Scrambled eggs with homemade Boursin (goat cheese with herbs and garlic) and tomatoes, alongside a natural orange juice and coffee and you’ll be ready to go!
After breakfast, the best thing to do is hit some interesting places like the 3D Museum of Wonders, located on 10th Av. between 8th street and 10th. This place will amaze you with it’s graphic perspective and it’ll offer the opportunity to interact with the backgrounds and take some memorable photos to take back home. Michigan native Kurt Wenner, best known to be the founder of interactive 3D pavement illusions is the mastermind behind this project.
Once you’re done in the museum it’ll be time to hit the cool waters of a cenote, to which I recommend Cenote Manatee. Located only 14 minutes away from Tulum town, Cenote Manatee is an open denote that offers a particular treat: it has a small route which you can discover with a canoe! So besides swimming with fish, discover underground caves and practice scuba diving, canoing is a great activity to make some exercise and prepare your body to relax in our next spot: Xcacel
Xcacel is a relatively unexploited small bay with a wide beach and calm turquoise waters surrounded by wild jungle. This beach has the particularity to be “the chosen one” from loggerhead turtles and white turtles for their nests and just as an extra, it has a nice little open cenote called Xcacelito.
So, we’ve been roaming a lot of places all day and is time to head back to civilisation in time for dinner, well guess what? Ula Gula is always waiting for you. Yes, this nice little spot in the corner of 5th av. and 10th street is well know for it’s music, tasty drinks and delicious treats, like it’s Mixed Bruschetta (melon-prosciutto, tomato-basil and mushroom gratin) or some tasty pizzas. I strongly recommend you to sit upstairs for a better view while you have one of the best mojitos you’ll find in Playa and head back to your bedroom with a full belly and a much more relaxed mind.
This little tour is just one of “Conrad’s tours through the best of best in Riviera Maya (patent pending)” that I’m working on… just kidding, just a few recommendations between us friends.
