Greetings from Tulum, Mexico!

"The language of friendship is not words but meanings." – Henry David Thoreau

Hola from Tulum, Mexico! I arrived yesterday for a few days of fun, friendship, and exploration on my first trip to Tulum, which is about a 90-minute drive southwest along the coast from Cancun airport. Images like the one above of Tulum's archeological ruins have long captivated me, and now I'm finally here to experience it firsthand. In addition to an audio walking tour of the ruins, I signed up for a Tulum street art walking tour, a site visit and rooftop dinner at the Kimpton Aluna Resort Tulum (where Nine Muses Travel clients receive special amenities) and a full day excursion to Chichen Itza followed by a cooling swim in a beautiful cenote and lunch at the colonial building El Meson del Marques in downtown Valladolid. And since Hyatt invited me on a trip back to Cancun in two weeks to see their all-inclusive properties in Playa Mujures and Playa del Carmen, this week I can simply focus on Tulum.

This trip to Tulum came about thanks to a close friend who invited a group of our old friends to join him and his husband at Hotel Tiki Tiki Tulum, where I'm writing this. It's a fabulous way to research Tulum, from the perspective of traveling with a group! Our hotel is a small, boutique property that is clean, modern, and stylish - a secluded tropical oasis. We are, in fact, bordering a jungle, on the western edge of Tulum town. I'm excited to also explore the sister property next door, Holistika Hotel, a wellness hotel with a healthy, delicious menu. Follow along with our adventures this week on Nine Muses Travel's Instagram and Facebook pages.

If European rivers are calling you more than the beaches of Mexico, there is an amazing promotion right now on select 2023 Avalon Waterways Europe river cruises where couples can save $500 AND GET AIRFARE INCLUDED FOR FREE! Airfares anywhere this year are pricing higher than you might expect, and to get FREE AIRFARE to Europe is a huge savings right now. You have to act fast though because this offer ends next week on February 28th. Even though I'm in Mexico, I AM still working and checking emails, so don't hesitate to reach out if you're interested in grabbing this deal.

Better yet, ask some friends to come along with you and save. There's nothing like that first drink when everyone's arrived all together to celebrate a new journey, is there? Cheers from Tulum!
