And after the winter in New York, I’m going to the white sandy beaches of Tulum. And in particular to Papaya Playa Project! A hotel I want to visit for ages already – since they opened as a pop up hotel by designhotels.com.  And ofcourse I’m bringing my telephone – no we’re not going on a digital detox holiday – so be prepared for an overload of beach, sea and sun pictures. Just to boost your Vitamin D levels and to inspire you to go there yourself one day!


Join me on Instagram to travel with me to Tulum.


And ofcourse I love to hear about your recommendations. What can’t I miss in that area? Let me know!


Thank you! x Pauline

    Hi Petite,

    It’s not in Tulum, but at Playa del Carmen: Hotel Basico!
    But it seems to be closed… all that’s left is a sweet reminder of what must have been a great place to stay: http://www.yatzer.com/Hotel-Basico-in-Playa-Del-Carmen-Mexico

    Enjoy Mx!

      Hi Franvis,

      Thanks for your comment! And you’re right: Hotel Basico is closed now. It’s a shame because it was such a stunning place. I’ve been there a few years ago and loved the atmosphere and rooftop pools. But now I fell in love with Tulum! (more about that in my post later this month).

      Best wishes, Pauline

    I’ve never been in Mexico before, so can’t give you any advise or tips. I’m looking forward to reading about & seeing the pictures from your travels there!

      Hi Evelien and Bobby, thank you for your message. Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about the status of the seaweed plague on the beaches of Tulum. Have a great time in Mexico! Pauline

    hey Pauline, Heb jij toevallig verblijftips voor Mexico city? Bij voorkeur Roma Norte. Alvast erg dank!
