Seis de Mayo – the dreaded day after.

Most of us overdid it last night reveling in memory of that most unlikely of military triumphs by the Mexican army over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Wait, what? I lifted my annual 364-day ban on killing my brain with tequila for the battle of where?

That’s right, Cinco de Mayo is not the independence celebration that most of us think it is (Mexican Independence Day is actually September 16). Apparently, Corona’s favorite holiday isn’t even celebrated very widely in Mexico.

No matter, Uncommon Caribbean likes a good party and really any reason will do. But here, now, amidst the wreckage of another epic fiesta, we’re ready for an escape to Tulum.

Located 2 hours south of the endless Cinco de Mayo that is Cancun (1 hour south of Playa del Carmen, the Yucatan’s other party zone), Tulum’s tranquil, laid-back vibe is the perfect antidote for any hangover. Pristine, uncrowded beaches, friendly faces and the majestic Mayan Ruins in Tulum make this an ideal vacation spot, no matter your condition.

No raging keggers. No Girls Gone Wild.

For accommodations in Tulum, you can’t do much better than the Blue Tulum Golf & Spa Resort. Don’t let the name fool you, though: this is not a sprawling mega-complex.

Blue Tulum is comprised of only 96 suites, each with its own Jacuzzi. Golf may be its middle name, but the links, and the crowds they can attract, are conveniently located a few miles away. There’s also no beach. The resort sits on a jagged, rocky coast with a small sandy tanning area and an expansive pool. Fabulous beaches are just a short bike ride away.

To me, Blue Tulum is actually a small, sexy all-inclusive property with an excellent spa, attentive service, fine cuisine, and a wonderfully secluded seaside location right next to the Tulum Ruins. It’s gorgeous and exclusive, yet unpretentious in a way that’s kind of unique among resorts along the Yucatan.

Right now, you can take advantage of 20% savings on your next Blue Tulum escape. Nightly rates start at just $185 per-person for resort stays in May and June, and go lower for July and August. And remember, that’s all-inclusive!

Savings are only available online, though, so click here for reservations.

Playa Time in Tulum, Mexico: Wish You Were Here

I have lots of great memories of my last visit to Tulum, the small seaside town nestled just south of Playa del Carmen in Mexico's famed Riviera Maya. Sadly, the beach wasn't one of them.

Starting the Day with a Walk on The Beach in Tulum

Long before tour buses deposit temple visiting tourists, or large nearby resorts unleash their guests onto the sand, Tulum beach is blissfully quiet.
