Now regarding your trip: truth is that a lot of stuff would work, BUT ... when you look back in maybe 10 or 20 years time, it is often the detail that matters, not the total grandness of Tulum, but the isolated image of your girlfriend near the opera house in Guanajuato (or wherever ...) Cityscapes can be a bit of a yeah/nah thing in hindsight, but portraits - in particular the intimate type - will last for a lifetime.

So in short, let me throw this into the works for you after you got so much "get the 100-400/5.6" or the "brick", I would truly recommend to take the 35/1.4 no matter what ... that one lens you might regret to have left at home.

Phrased it better than I could ever have! Perfectly summarizes my experience as well. All you need is the 35mm f/1.4 for the type of pictures and light travel the OP seeks. Stop thinking you need other lenses, you don't.
