started with mexican brunch at el rincon in downtown . heres is the menu . its a great CHEAP taco place on the corner of the strip [see my prev days blog for details] . everythign we have had here is great .
went for a big trek into biosphere today – dont forget to juice up the cars petrol tank ! we drove way in , takes ages as its such a bad road to drive on , and we eventually decided we would stop at a place we found along the way called XAMACH DOS . it said welcome to paradise so we bought into that one .
its run by an american girl called michelle and her mexican fella called hugo . previous to these running it , it had been her dads place for 9 years previous . nice hosts would be an understatement . its a small place with about 5 or 6 cabanas and rooms . it has one particularly cool cabana on stilts they call the honeymoon suite …. complete with massive bath inside , and the whole thing is lifted up all on stilts overlooking the sea .
after appologising they didnt have any rooms we explained we where only after a beer or something and a break on the beach and they welcomed us in . they arent really a public place we discovered , but their door is open and they will happily host you for beers n snacks IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT ATTITUDE . it was really peaceful , one couple reading books , so i dont expect a whole load of noise would go down well here .
loved the pirate flag flying on the beach !
and their cat
we lazed in hammocks
a strange tide , poss a result of that storm , had that morning washed a load of seaweed onto their beach , hugo wasnt too happy as he had only just cleaned it apparently !! you can tell they love this place , they run it so well . due to the nearby offshore reef there is pratically zero tide here , calmest water we have seen while in tulum .

they gave us some great stories , made up some empanadas , salsas and guac and chips etc , and this mayan dish which was made of toasted pumkin seeds , crushed , then mixed with tomatos to form a dipping paste . wow this food is so bloody good .
heres the journey into biosphere – its not all the way to xmach dos , we got bored filming after an hour . but you get the idea . long bumpy gravelly fun times . ive also put some anotation captions in of particular lanmark hotels just before biosphere if your looking to see something in particular like ana y jose or la zebra or something .
