Living the Mexican way

Where time doesn’t matter

I spent my first afternoon on Tulum beach yesterday along with my Mexican friend Romina at Zazil’Kin (cabañas on the beach from 40$/night). I was realizing how much, we, North Americans, are always on the go. Mexicans surely taught me that time has another meaning. Sit back, relax, take the time to appreciate each present moment you are in, not worrying about tomorrow or later.

So, putting in practice the Mexican lesson 🙂 Romina & I enjoyed the 2 for 1 daily special of the Zazil’Kin bar, spent the day swimming, suntanning, relaxing, practicing yoga. Don’t get me wrong, Mexicans also work really hard when it’s time to do so, but still, always keep it relax.

We also went snorkeling to the reef by boat for only 20$/person and saw all kind of colorful fishes. And when we decided to leave the beach it wasn’t because of what time it was, it was because of the rain. Gracias la vida!

Quand le temps n’a pas d’importance

Romina vient de Queretaro et vit maintenant à Tulum.

Hier j’ai passé ma première journée sur la plage de Tulum avec ma grande amie Mexicaine, Romina. Je réalisais une fois de plus combien nous, les “Nord-Américains” sommes toujours pressés et stressés. Apprécier chaque moment présent sans penser à l’heure ou à demain, est sans aucun doute le plus bel apprentissage que la culture Mexicaine m’a transmise.

Mettant en pratique mes apprentissages culturels, j’ai passé l’après-midi à profiter du 2 pour 1 du bar du Zazil’Kin 🙂 Nous avons relaxé, bronzé, nagé, fait du yoga, sans se soucier à aucun moment du temps. Ça a fait tellement de bien.

Zazil’Kin, en plus de son cool “beach bar”, offre de la location de cabañas à partir de 40$/nuit. C’est aussi le point de départ vers des excursions de plongée (offertes à partir de 20$/ personne) vers le récif de Tulum, où vous verrez de nombreux poissons, raies, tortues… Disfruta!

Our world is changing, our consciousness is rising and our spirits are waking up to unification. We are all one and travel-smart is just an exemple among many more. I want to be part of the change, do you?
