Women Who Travel Solo: A Solo Trip to Tulum, Mexico with Shari Bayer
Take a solo trip to paradise and visit Tulum with Shari Bayer in today's Women Who Travel Solo.
How did you get started traveling?I was in my 30’s and working for myself with the ability, and desire, to travel. Since I was single, and making plans with friends or family wasn’t easy, I started to plan my own solo adventures. I began with weekend getaways, such as Aruba, and soon progressed to longer overseas trips, from Italy to Australia and New Zealand. I found that the more I traveled on my own, the more I loved it. I enjoyed my independence and having my own itinerary, which always revolved around food and restaurants. I could do whatever I wanted at my own pace, and dine solo at the best restaurants in the world. It was a new sense of freedom.
Why did you decide to take a solo trip to Tulum, Mexico?I wanted to escape to a beautiful and peaceful place that I had not been to before for some R&R. I had heard about Tulum from industry friends and it seemed like the ideal destination for a long weekend. It was fairly easy to get to from NYC with a direct flight to Cancun and then about a 1 ½ drive.
Tell us about your experience in Tulum as a solo traveler.Tulum was paradise! My hotel was located right on the beach overlooking the Caribbean Sea. I spent time relaxing on the beach, sipping on green juice and coconut water as I lounged in the sun. I treated myself to outdoor massage listening to the soothing waves, and enjoyed swimming in the crystal clear water, walking on the white sand beach and vegging out in a hammock. One morning, I naturally woke up very early and watched the sunrise on the deck. It was amazing. I also visited a lovely cenote, explored the Mayan ruins and practiced yoga in a treehouse. I dined al fresco for every meal, often with sand in my toes, feasting on authentic Mexican dishes and fresh seafood. Tulum’s low-key vibe was exactly what I needed to unwind from my busy NYC schedule.
What recommendations do you have for solo travelers in Tulum?Hotels: Mezzanine Hotel, Be Tulum Activities: Yaan Wellness Center, Cenote Dos Ojos, Mayan Ruins Restaurants: Chamico, Posada Margherita, Unico at Mi Amor Hotel, Mateo’s Mexican Grill, Hartwood, Arca
