Tulum has two faces.

There is the Hotel Zone which is a strip of bars, restaurants, hotels, retail shops along the main road running along the beach all the way south to a biosphere nature preserve called Sian Kian. Then there is the Mexican town of Tulum where locals live. You can find tourists in the town of Tulum and locals in the Hotel Zone, but each is a different slice of Mexican pie.

This restaurant,Matteo’s, is in the Hotel Zone, towards the north end, and features, according to the sign, ” The Best Fish Tacos on Earth. ”

When questioned, these two kids maintain that the tacos are really the best in the Universe, but agree this would be difficult to prove since Mexico doesn’t send up space ships to verify.

In mid day, the restaurant is doing good business and fish tacos are swimming out of the kitchen.The kids gave a thumbs up and let their picture be taken. I’ll be back for the best tacos on Earth.

Who would turn down such an opportunity?
