The first night welcomed dinner on the beach. Not next to the beach, not near the beach, ON the beach. It was simply a dream come true. With a buffet style set of offerings from grilled veggies to a variety of tender meats to a table full of desserts and of course an open bar of Jackson Family Wines. It was a truly majestic scene to say the very least.
The next night welcomed a private tasting with the Kendall Jackson master himself and celebrity Chef Neal followed by a multi course dinner that included:
The following night was a special dinner where celebrity Chef Neal cooked in front of the guests and thoroughly explained every ingredient and why he incorporated it into his dishes.
Tulum is a must-see with its Mayan ruins – so rich in history and culture. I loved the town with all of its flea market like shops as I was sipping on a giant pineapple.
Above all, it was an impeccable trip with never-ending opportunities to taste, drink, and experience Mexico with the #ElDoradoExperience.
