Not homely at all!

So expensive! I don't know how this place gets away with charging over US$50 for a simple and musky private. Dorm beds were cheaper but still pricey for how basic they were- Grimey walls and flimsy lockers. We were given dirty sheets for our dorm beds and had to exhange them.
The bathroom was clean, yet there was never any toilet paper in there and we constantly had to ask staff to restock it! Staff seem to be doing nothing really; they just sit or lay around watching TV.
We didn't feel like the staff really cared if we were there or not! There was a weird vibe around the place too as the owners often had friends around and smoking in the common room so we felt less welcome.
We'd choose Hostel Shek next time if we were to get a dorm in Tulum!
'Mama's Home' just didn't feel like 'home'!
Oh yeah, and then there's the tacky Christmas decorations that look like they've been up for years!

This hostel has a great central area with a great vibe. They also have the most amazing breakfasts which are free of charge. The first day we had chocolate banana crepes with amazing coffee. The second day we had an egg scramble, a warm french roll, fresh watermelon, and coffee. This place I would recommend to everyone!

Die Fahrt von Mérida nach Tulum war ziemlich kurz (4 Stunden) und sehr bequem (nagelneuer Volvo-Bus). Sie war aber leider nicht so spannend, da die Schnellbuse auf den teuren Autobahnen fahren, wo die Aussicht leider ziemlich öde ist. Weil der Fahrer sein neues Gefährt nicht wirklich im Griff hatte, brachten wir die Strecke zudem ohne Film hinter …

Back on the Yucatan Peninsula!

After leaving Mexico a few months ago to travel in Cuba and Central America, we have finally returned to the stunning Yucatan Peninsula (taking a boat from Caye Caulker, Belize to Chetumal in Mexico).

As well as being thrilled about more great Mexican street food, we are also loving being back to where the most beautiful …

Day 92 - Off to Tulum

A travel blog entry by jayandbob on Sep 12, 2013

... an hour, once in Tulum we got a very short taxi ride to the Masion hotel 2 blocks up from the main road in centro Tulum. The hotel was only very small, the owner William was extremely friendly and helpful, when we checked in he got out a map and went through everything to do in the town, all we needed to know he have us. There was a nice little bakery downstairs under our room, a rooftop area with hammocks and a few cats ...

... the unlucky and in many cases volunteers, willing to sacrifice their lives and their blood to return to the gods. From the sacrificial altar we head to the first of two ball courts and then, further down the jungle trails, come upon a temple. The trails that stretch for miles inevitably have plenty of other tourists on, some of whom hire bikes to get around while others with limited mobility, or in certain cases sheer laziness, opt for the tricycle rickshaws on offer as local ...
