Buenos dias Tulum! Que tal su fin de semana? El mio fue increible. Viernes de cine en Playa del Carmen con amigos, Sábado relax con mi familia! #neftlix y Domingo en la playa por la mañana, tomando el sol y disfrutando mi mar turquesa y por la tarde celebrando el cumpleaños de una amiga en el Hostel The Weary Traveler. Dj Rob Jeffrey nos hizo bailar toda la noche y las caipirinhas de Abe nos mantuvieron muy feliz!!! 13015176_1191028294243539_7720364744997591374_n20161002_193700

Breakfast at Cabanas La Luna and Fishing in Tankah Bay

Maanati dive shop (4)

 

Well, I have to say that I LOVE  having breakfast on Tulum beach  getting kissed by the early morning sun rays. As much as I love dining at all of the restaurants in Tulum, this is one of my favorites.  Even just the ride down to the beach is so much more fun.

 

I finished up my meeting, official business for the my phone 161day — CHECK!  Now it was time to order breakfast, enjoy the beach and see what the day would bring.  One of my favorite breakfast dishes in Tulum is Huevos Rancheros.  Eggs over easy on a tortilla slathered in beans and a delicious salsa.  At Cabanas La Luna, Huevos Rancheros are served with seasoned potatoes and peppers and a perfectly firm avocado.  I always add a touch of the fresh habanero salsa for an extra kick.  The homemade bread and jams at Cabanas La Luna are the perfect compliment to balance the spice.

 

 

 

I love it when I am having a meal with a friend and we split dishes.  In this case I was the happy recipient of a bacon, cheese and veggie omelet.  AMAZING!

 

casa cenote, tulum (4)Now what are we going to do????  Then true to perfect Tulum form, another close friend came strolling up and asked what we were planing on doing.  Next thing we knew we were on the road to Tankah  Bay to go snorkeling in Casa Cenote – and do a little afternoon fishing with the Manatee Dive shop.

Just another Tulum Day. Living and Loving Tulum.

Ziggy’s beach club!

Ziggies Beach Club
Beach clubs in Tulum can be hit or miss. But I have always enjoyed the Beach Club at Cabanas Tulum. I remember when it first opened several years ago. This is always one of my favorite spots to come with my kids.

Things to do with kids in Tulum can be tough to find. Parents want to relax and enjoy their meals and kids do not want to sit forever while their parents enjoy– enter Ziggies Beach Club. I love this spot with kids because 1- they have a trampoline (although this is currently being repaired as of may 2013) 2- they have a pool table within easy reach of a table so that parents can enjoy their meal while the kids enjoy a pool game.
3- they have tables during the day right down on the beach so that kids can easily play in the water.

As a parent of 2 kids I can say that having them entertained while I enjoy 1 of my favorite dishes from their vast menu. One of my favorites is the chicken caesar wrap with a glass of crispy white wine. It is simple but classic and always good!

They have a number of special events that I have attended as well from wine classes featuring mexican wines- which I loved, to lobster night, tequila tastings and a specialty Mexican dinner buffet. I have been talking to the owners about getting these events on the Tulum Events Calendar and hopefully you will see them there soon.

Stay tuned- but in the mean time…. any time is a good time to go to Ziggies Beach Club in Tulum.

Beach in Tulum at Cabanas la Luna

A great view for breakfast

I am not really sure how I could have had a better Mother’s Day weekend. In Mexico Dia de las madres is Always on May 10, regardless of the day of the week- in the USA it is the 2nd Sunday. S every few years – like this one- it creates an amazing weekend of LOVE MOMMY!

Las Estrellas at Cabanas la Luna

Bacon and Cheese omelet! Yummy!

So Friday, started out by working from home as usual. After getting the kids from school we headed down to the First Friday event at Mateo’s —— This was great because there was great art everywhere- kids activities- kite flying- face painting etc. Once the kids left with their father, I stayed and covered the event for work (I love my job!) After the event I headed into town to listen to some live music! I stopped of at Curanderos and Mint and as always both were a blast. Amazingly I was in bed by 2 am (that is really early for Tulum’s nightlife! as bands do not start until 11 pm in town)Las Estrellas at Cabanas la Luna (3)

Saturday I spent my day in my bed with the ac on and watched shows on the internet. Later in the afternoon I headed out to a cenote to cool off even more.

Sunday morning was met with kids and Ruben taking me to the beach to enjoy an amazing breakfast at Cabanas La Luna (LINK) The food here is incredible we were all pretty happy. For the rest of the day we played on the beach- got a tan and drank smoothies (Cabanas La Luna makes some killer smoothies) To top off the already killer food day I had, the guys in the kitchen who are long time friends sent me home with dinner- Their special that day- Filet Mignon with asparagus and green potatoes! It was amazing! The kids and I curled up in bed and ate the best dinner we have had in a LONG time!

As if the weekend ending their would not be enough- On Monday a friend of mine was sent to give me a massage while the kids were gone with my husband- where they went I had no idea- and I really did not care- I was getting a massage jajaja I did not care about anything at that moment.

When they got home they were holding my gift…. a beautiful kitty! My long time cat, Calvin died this past year after being with me for 15 years. So getting such a special kitty was a real treat. We named him Hobbs. I must say…. this Mother’s Day is going down in history!088

Mateo's First Friday TulumFun activities to with kids in Tulum are not the easiest thing to find. Well, I have to say that my kids are looking forward to returning to Mateo’s on the first Friday of June! Keeping the kids happy and entertained allows for the grown ups to enjoy the MANY amazing shows, demonstrations or activities around during First Friday.Mateo's First Friday Tulum

Mateo’s in Tulum has always been knows for having something for everyone. With several different levels and areas to enjoy your afternoon with different entertainment in each. Match that to the crazy imagination of the owner, Matt and you get some pretty spectacular events!

Mateo's First Friday Tulum

This past Friday marked the opening of the latest from this mastermind of fun… First Friday Live Art Expo. Yes, I know- last Friday was not the First Friday of May! The event had been postponed from the previous Friday due to weather concerns.

Mateo's First Friday Tulum

Anyway…. The beauty behind this idea is not to have a place with a bunch of artisans selling their items but rather a LIVE demonstration of how they do it. Pieces are for sale as well but the as the afternoon draws into night the blank canvas begins to come alive.Mateo's First Friday Tulum

There were several stations set up all around and the whole place was a buzz with energy. From a spray paint artist doing a stunning mural on the back wall to several artists painting large canvases, a talented body painter, beautiful jewelry makers, a chess table, kite flying on the upper deck, a table stocked with art supplies and Mexican images for you to create your own piece of art and add to that the amazing sounds of Son de la Barrio playing their incredible reggae cuban music!338

Raining in Tulum, duck and cover Breakfast!

By at April 30, 2013 | 12:00 pm | 0 Comment

Ziggys Beach Club

Rain in Tulum comes in quickly and  disappears just as fast. People are always emailing me – asking me what the weather is like during certain times of the year. The fact is that most days are absolutely beautiful. Some a little more hot then others – some much more humid then others, but all are beautiful.

20130430-123859 p.m..jpg

Today was a beautiful example of the rain in Tulum. The morning was beautiful, a little cloudy but beautiful. On the ride to the beach for work I could tell that the rain was about to start in 3 or 4 minutes. You get really good at this skill the longer you live here. My son has uncanny ability to call out the rain about 30-45 minutes before it starts. I will never forget our first Christmas here, we stayed at Blue Tulum, back before it was Adonis. My son, then 4 turned to his grandparents and me and said, “We better head inside. It is going to rain soon.” An older couple near by chuckled at the cute little boy thinking it was going to rain- as it was a remarkably clear day.  Like this  type of sky…tulum beach

Never the less, we packed up and headed into get a snack. about 15 minutes later with almost NO warning what-so-ever, the rain began to dump on the pool area where we had been sitting. When the older couple ran inside and saw my son they complimented his remarkable skills. Every since, he has rarely been wrong.

Well anyway…. today I ducked into Cabanas Tulum just in time. I must say that I was actually very glad to get rained on because it gave me a chance to get one of my favorite breakfasts in Tulum… the Eggs Benedict at Ziggy’s Beach Club. I must say that since I moved to Mexico I have rarely had a really good Eggs Benedict.   The only 2 exceptions to this that I have found are.  1) Mezzanine Hotel – The eggs Benedict here were really really amazing and I mean seriously…. check out this view!

eggs-benedictand the 2nd is at  Ziggy’s Beach Club.  Well today, I got my special treat… I got to sit back and watch the sea thrash and the rain plop onto the sand while eating an amazing Eggs Benedict and enjoy a beautiful glass of white wine!20130430-125943 p.m..jpg

and now, in true Tulum form, the rain has past, the sun has come out and it is time to get back on with my day.
