My fantasies of floating in the turquoise Caribbean ocean at Tulum were foiled by endless amounts of seaweed. Seaweed for days and days. I’ve never seen so much in my life. Alas, there are other places to swim in Tulum. We somehow ended up on a private tour (not exactly high season in Tulum at the moment) and had Dos Ojos cenote to ourselves for about an hour before the hoards of divers and tourists arrived. Snorkelling the crystal clear water of Dos Ojos and baby sea turtles interrupting our evening vino on the beach were the highlights of Tulum. Apart from that we did a lot of lazing around on beach chairs and in hammocks. What seaweed?
