Friday morning we left Charlotte, NC around 9:30am and after a three hour flight we finally arrived in Cancun, Mexico. Once we landed there were so many planes we actually had to wait for a good thirty minutes in line with about fifteen to twenty other arriving planes until a gate was available.

Today we started out early and headed to the Mayan city of Tulum. The ruins there were not all that impressive but the ancient city was built only a sheer cliff about fifty yards above the beach so the views were spectacular. The day was very hot so we walked along the top edge of the cliff so we could take …

TravelPod Member ReviewsEl Taj Oceanfront & Beachside Condos Hotel Playa del Carmen
We had a three bedroom condo that included daily maid service. We overlooked the poo and have better than "partial" views of the ocean. The El Taj is right in the middle of the nightlife and just a couple of blocks from 5th Ave.!!!
