We made the journey from Tulum to Caye Caulker easily in one day using public transport in January 2015.
After Caye Caulker, we realised that the rumours of Belize being expensive were indeed true. So we decided to make just one more stop, in San Ignacio, near the Guatemalan border.
Belize is an anomaly in Central America, being the only English speaking country and one rooted more in the culture of the Caribbean islands than the region surrounding it.
Our time in Mexico was amazing, and we loved the sights, the culture, the people and of course the food. It isn’t an expensive place but it still somehow obliterated our budget beyond belief.
We almost skipped Tulum, as it looked a bit beyond our budget – what a mistake that would have been.
