Former Miss MBGN Tourism, Chinyere Adogu, is a free spirit adventurer whose journey to different countries is like an unending love story. The style icon, who resides in New York, captures her moments on her blog and also serves as an event host.

Where’s home?

New York, USA.

What projects are you working on?

I’m currently working on travel blogging projects in Mexico, Cuba, South Africa and the Bahamas. I am also in the planning stages of my non-profit, The Crown Life annual workshop, in Lagos.


What advice would you give a tourist?

I would tell a tourist to always be aware of your surroundings and courteous to the people you encounter.

Why are you here?

It was my birthday and I heard Tulum was an untouched paradise that was slowly gaining popularity on social media.

What do you like about Tulum?

Tulum is beach luxury at its finest. Every beach, even though connected, is different and designed with its own unique theme. The food, mostly seafood, is amazing. It’s truly the perfect place to relax.

What do you dislike about Tulum?

Getting around Tulum without a car is difficult, so I would suggest renting one, unless you’re willing to do a 20-40 minute bike ride to your destination under the beating sun.

Best restaurant?

Gitano and Hartwood; they were both amazing.

What was the last tune you downloaded?

Sicker by Niniola.

What shoes are you wearing today and why?

The transparent sandals I bought online from Fashion You Up are what I wore for most of my trip because they’re super comfortable and match every outfit.

Where’s the party at?

On Friday, the party is at Gitano, on Saturday, the party is at Papaya Playa Project and, on Sunday, the day party is at Coco Tulum!

What do you do for exercise around here?

Bike riding is the best form of exercising in Tulum.

How do you wind down?

I ordered a home service massage to my Airbnb. The massage was amazing and so was the Airbnb!

Who will you call if you get into trouble?

My sister, Chuka. I honestly think she has the answer to everything.

What are you missing most?

Time. When I’m travelling, I always feel like I don’t have enough time, which is strange because, sometimes, I travel for three days or two weeks and it feels like the days fly by. I definitely feel like I didn’t do everything I wanted to do in Tulum, so I will be back.
