Can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay and the great staff at El Pez. The trip was a graduation/birthday present for my daughter and there was a very pretty bouquet of flowers waiting for her when we arrived. Thanks Julia!
The Pez has delicious breakfast and dinners and the most excellent guacamole I ever tasted. Every afternoon after being out and about, we either had drinks brought to our cabana or on the beach.
The hotel arranged for a snorkel trip to Dos Ojos cenote (mexidivers were the best) and bikes for us to rent for two days. They also arranged for a driver for a trip to Coba (the driver was very nice and took us to buy souvenirs afterward - do not buy at the ruins - big ripoff). The beach at El Pez is good for sunbathing but for actual swimming, we preferred any beach south of the Tulum ruins.
Tulum itself was beyond my expectations. At every moment we were happy to be there and not in Cancun. The area is so tranquil and laid back. The restaurants were absolutely fantastic. Our favorites: El Tabano (bring good bug spray) and Mateo's, and although we found the boutiques pricey, we thought the whole place very affordable - all of our food, drink and bike charges after 5 nights were quite reasonable. The mosquitoes ate us alive but we can't wait to get back there. :)
Special thanks to Hope Smith from Born to Travel for arranging everything for us. www.born2travel.net
