“Worst team, ugliest location,” declared Blanca Padilla on Instagram, tongue firmly in cheek, about her newly published David Bellemère story in the April 2017 Marie Claire Italia. As much of a drag as Tulúm can be, what with its white sands and clear waters, Papaya Playa was not having an off day when it was visited by Blanca and co for this colorful 22-page story. Blanca is at her effervescent best dashing through the crystal waters (pictured) wearing a coat and top by Versace with trousers by Versus Versace. The worst, huh?
