Our Perfect 2 Week Mexico Travel Guide When I first saw pictures of Tulum I was a little confused because it didn’t represent the Mexico I knew (or thought I knew).

On my second visit to Koh Samui I could barely remember where the good restaurants were that I liked from last time, or that nice beach, etc. This time I’ve put it all down in a post ASAP so even if no one else benefits from it, at least I have a reference for future!
