Soon, you’ll be able to fly directly into the gorgeous hotspot destination that is Tulum, Mexico. The coastline town’s new airport is currently under construction and has been given an opening date, after a tour of the worksite from President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on May 20.
According to Riviera Maya News, he toured the site with Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa. The new international airport will be called Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport. It will be finished by December 2023, according to statements issued by President López Obrador on Twitter.
“In December it will be possible to fly anywhere in Mexico and the world,” López Obrador posted.Onsite managers and engineers reported that the construction of the new airport is about 40% complete. The Cancun Sun reported back in March that VivaAerobus and its North American partner Allegiant Air will be serving the airport. Initially, the new international airport was slated to be completed in April 2024, but work has advanced ahead of schedule, so the December completion date will be when the new Tulum airport will begin accepting passengers.
As we’ve previously noted, the perfect time to visit Tulum is between November and March, so you might want to start planning ahead for a winter 2024 getaway. The so-called “Williamsburg of Mexico” awaits.
Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.
Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.
You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
