Day 4 Tulum and Hotel Papaya Playa

After breakfast at the Hacienda Tres Rios, we departed on our one hour drive to the third most visited archeological site in the area, Tulum. As I mentioned on day 3, the archeological site resembles the existence of a disappearing Mayan culture and their believes. Our guide Hugo gave us a complete explanation of the site and each of the monuments, quite a lot of information!.  The heat was so intense that Hugo had to get the group out of the shadows of the trees, every 10 minutes. We learned that the site was a major center for trading, for the arrival of the Oley Turtles and one of the best preserved coastal Maya sites. As the tour was getting to an end, we were anxious to get to the Hotel Papaya Playa, located just 10 minutes form Tulum, and where the owners would be welcoming us with a delicious lunch and to spend some free time on the white-sand beaches and the turquoise waters. The Hotel Papaya Playa is a beach front small resort, recommended mainly to backpackers, couples and families. A place that provides a enjoyable environment with a minimum environmental impact, and where you get easily lost with the music of the ocean.
