Carribean Beach Holiday

A travel blog entry by p2cezz


Playa del Carmen, whilst is not quite the Gold Coast and I am not normally into beach holidays, I have to say is a nice place to chill for a while. The only exception is that the weather is getting warmer and more humid by the day.

I have spend my days here chilling on the beach at the pub with another Aussie girl that I met, enjoying …

Relaxing In Mexico

... the cold and rain we all had a great time.

Two other couples from Ryan and Clarice's circle of friends showed up this afternoon to spend a long weekend with us. We all decided to go to the theater this evening for dinner and a show. The food was good and the show was delightfully cheesy.

After the show we went to the rooftop bar for dancing and shena****ns. We found out that it was one of the bartenders birthdays ...

There is a zoo!

... food. They were about the size of Jimmy in their body, but of course their legs were shorter and they had no tails. I was particularly taken by them... And you can see why they would be eaten, there is a fair bit of meat on their bodies! After we left the park we found a walkway though the jungle, it is part of some Mayan archeology and contained an old city wall which had protected the area and a ruin. And, it bought us out on the beach which was just ...

Sinkholes and Jersey Shore

... Australian had defended him in the face of a bully, who didn’t like his shoes.

‘Chucked him out by his hair..’ he said.

And since then he’s had an overwhelming fondness for Australians. Just our luck.
I noticed he kept his own tab of beers against the bar. Unsure if it was a matter of trust, or a trophy but he had close to 30 strikes down there.
‘You don’t wanna go to Cancun’ he says, hand on my shoulder. ...

    This is a fantastic little hostel with very friendly staff and a fantastic atmosphere. There is bucket loads of space for relaxing and a cheap but excellent dinner option. The room was clean and the bathroom top notch. The beach is easy to get to by bus or taxi and the staff gave us all sorts of recommendations as to where to go and eat both in Playa del Carmen and in the surrounding area.

    Casa del Shiva is a nice place to chill whilst in Playa del Carmen. The entire place is kept very clean, and the manager makes a fantastic breakfast each day. Internet access is also good. The combination of the beach and the pool at the house makes for a relaxing place to stay. Whilst it is not a quick walk to the main strip, it is good to get away for the tourist strip and the local transport "collectivos" are very easy and cheap to use.
