Another take on Tulum from up north

For a slightly different take on the Mayan ruins near Cancun that I told you about earlier, I found this article from the Vancouver Sun. Here´s an excerpt: 

“The road that connects Cancun and Tulum is being widened from two lanes to four, and that may accelerate development pressures on Tulum. But for now, the bland touristy look disappears just south of the Tulum ruins, where the road sneaks past mangroves onto the beach and groups of candlelit, mosquito-netted palapas (thatched huts) inhabited by tourists and locals alike replace air-conditioned, pool-surrounded resorts.”
