We’ve got a full day ahead of us. We are gonna start early morning, checking out the Maya ruins of Tulum. And then we’re gonna head off to an eco waterpark and splash around.

Freddy, Guide and Archeologist: “As you guys know, Tulum was built in the fourteen and the sixteen hundreds (1400s and 1600s), okay.”

So my guide, Freddy, is really cool. He’s not just a guide, he’s an archeologist. He studies this, he knows everything about Tulum.

Freddy, Guide and Archeologist: “In front of us, we can see in the distance, that’s the second biggest coral reef in the world.”

One of the great things about Tulum is that it’s right next to the ocean, and there’s access, so you can get right in.

Alright, Tulum was a lot of fun, but we still have some more. It’s time to put on our bathing suits and head to an eco waterpark.

Xel-Ha is one gigantic aquarium, but it’s not man-made; this is a natural inlet into the sea over there. Everything you see here, the fish, the animals, the birds, they all live right here in the great outdoors.

It is time for one of my favorite tranquilo water activities, the lazy river. Weee!

This is the kind of place where you get to let out your inner child and just have as much fun as possible.

We’ve been surrounded by natural beauty pretty much all day, starting off this morning at Tulum, the ruins, the ocean, and now having the time of our lives at this eco waterpark.

This was a complete and perfect day.
