Flight and evening at resort

A travel blog entry by gannor

... got to the resort. The resort We got off the bus, and was met by a greater with fresh fruit juice from the smoothy bar. It was delicious. During checkin, we found out that we are all over the resort, not as a group. Oh well. Unfortunately, it was dark when we got here, so we could not do any exploring. Next it was time for supper, as we only ate on the plane. WE met up with everyone at 7:30 in the lobby for the buffet. ...

Day 85 - Swimming with whale sharks

A travel blog entry by jayandbob

This is a top pick!

Diving cozumel and the ceynotes

A travel blog entry by katherinelevy


... On this dive I saw a huge green moray eel swim out of his cave and right round us. He was very curious and came extremely close. There were also a number of super-sized lobsters doing salsa outside their hidey-holes which was fantastic. After a good day out I got back to Playa del Carmen exhausted.

My next two dives that I had planned were in the ceynotes (sinkholes). Mexico has a number of cave and cavern systems and I had heard about these dives and ...

Feliz Año Nuevo desde Playa del Carmen

A travel blog entry by nicorach


... A taste we would not grow to get sick of for the next four weeks!

Our first exploration of the main drag in Playa del Carmen was like stepping foot in a ritzy resort-clad city – Americans as far as the eye could see, German ice cream shops, flash restaurants, coffee shops with many people who were clearly not backpacking! For this reason we stuck to our īback-streetsī where the tacos ...
