This was the impeccable design of our rooms during our stay at the Jashita Hotel! We absolutely loved it!

After our lovely stay at the BE TULUM hotel we made our way to another little oasis: the Jashita Hotel…This eco friendly splendid Hotel was the perfect next step for our trip.
Run by an Italian, the hotel’s interior has an impeccable taste. Milly kept marvelling to how similar our place in Sardegna is. We simply loved it. From the beach area to the tea area, everything was beautiful. To not talk about the pretty rooms, all linen bed sheets, modern sleek bathrooms, and personalize pool area on terrace. Being less than 30 accomodations, you end up feeling like you are staying over at a friends villa rather than a hotel.
(THE NEXT POST WILL BE JUST ON THE ROOMS!)
We really think it would be alovely place to rent out for a party or with a big group of friends. Also they have a separate Villa just for that!
The restaurant of the hotel was absolutely delicious, with half a menu serving local dishes and the other half focussing on traditional Italian cuisine, we had some fabulous meals. Mily’s favorite was the Zucchini pasta! A Must try!
The beach located in an internal protected area gives on to a super placid sea surrounded by the reef. There you can enjoy different activities like canoeing and snorkeling!
We definetely want to head back here in the near future and bring along some more friends!

This was the stunning view we saw from the Mayan ruins of Tulum

Reporting from the Mayan ruins on 12/12/12!
Yes, we thought it would be funny and dramatic to head here on the bla bla bla day that everyone seemed to be so thrilled about! Sorry we won’t be able to be here on the last day on the world but I have to head back to Italy and my mama is going to LA…!
Apart from the exaggerated date, the Mayan ruins of Tulum blew Milly and I away!
What we were expecting was a smaller settlement similar to the Coba one (being in the jungle each part was 1 km apart, but from one ruin to the next there was just jungle). And instead upon entering the massive garden we were projected into a whole different era belonging to the Mayans. The place is gorgeous, with wide green gardens with scattered palm trees, the ruins were kept in great shape, and I always marvel to how they managed to last for so long.
While walking there we got a strong feeling of calmness (the fact that there were hardly any tourists did help). The remains that give on to the sea are fantastic, the grey stone that forms them against the super turquoise waters give an amazing contrast!
MUST VISIT ASAP!

This is Coba, the second largest mayan ruins in the area of Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Located off the coast into a jungle of long thin canopy, this is a must visit when staying in Tulum.
It took us a little over an hour to reach the site, from Tulum. An easy and straight forward drive down the one and obly road :)
Here we saw their Astrological centre, the tall pyramid of Nohoch Mul which we were allowed to climb (Milly and I have a small issue with heights so limited our selves to 5 steps) and the Iglesia. Overall a very special place, make sure you head there early in the morning before it gets swamped with tourist, also we headed over on an overcast day, which saved us from the scorching humidity of the place!
anyways will let the photos do the talking:

Chilling in Paradise, also know as hanging out in Tulum. Well the BE beach in Tulum to be precise. W
Being the first time ever Milly and I set foot on this side of Mexico we have to admit we have been blown away by the beauty of the place!
The weather is a lovely temperature of around 28 degrees, there is a light breeze that cools you down when you sit in the shade. The sea is crystal clear and a beautiful tropical turquoise with crispy white sand that some how doesn’t heat up beneath your feet.
The way our hotel has arranged its beach seating plan has made us wonder why there isnt any beach like this back in Sardinia….The concept is easy, the comfort is great, Mexicans are just many steps ahead of italians when it comes to beaches…!
