Tulum Honey Store, Lunch at Mezzanine, Massage at Maya Tulum Spa ~ Tulum, Mexico

Being beekeepers, I always like to find local honey to sample and we had seen a new honey store on the Coba Road on a previous visit. So our excursion for the day was to the Honey Store, then lunch at Mezzanine on the Tulum Beach and then massages in the afternoon at Maya Tulum.

The Honey Store is a cooperative of many of the local beekeepers and they have a great selection of items from honey and pollen to bath and body products, food and candy. They also sell a local book about native plants that is really neat.

IMG_4750The regular honeybee honey is reasonable and you can sample the different flavors.

IMG_4752I fell in love with their honey shampoo after we started using it. Wish I had bought a case of it and will next time we go! It smells wonderful and leaves my hair soft and manageable. You can also use it as a body wash.

IMG_4771I love the cold cocos you can buy from locals on the Coba Road in the villages. “Coco Frios” are very refreshing and even better with some rum!

IMG_4825We rested a bit and then it was time for our massages at Maya Tulum Spa (R & R Resorts) on the south end of Tulum Road. Our Soliman Bay masseuse, Lucia, was in Italy visiting family, so we headed to Tulum Beach for our spa fallback. You go ahead of time to pay, choose your service and who you would like. http://www.rrresorts.com/
