Couched on the Yucatan Peninsula sits Tulum, home to one of Mexico's most stunning Mayan ruins, a biosphere reserve, and a steadily growing tourism industry that captures the beauty of the Caribbean coastline (without the spring break-soaked madness of nearby Cancun). With archeological wonders to explore, water sports and yoga galore, obsession-worthy eats, and some seriously stylish digs, Tulum is nicely set up to make a visiting San Franciscan feel right at home... well, perhaps a paradise-like home-away-from-home.
I was on vacation in Mexico last week. We were in Tulum (I was there in March too—can't get enough of it), mostly cooking in the kitchen of the beautiful house we rented on the beach or filling up on the most perfect panuchos at a little placed called El Rincón Chiapaneco located in the heart of the sleepy town. Which means that I haven’t been doing as much eating here.
