Located only two or three blocks from the beach, and only one block from the shops and restaurants on 5th Avenue! I definitely do not feel like I missed out on anything by not staying directly on the beach. In fact, I liked being close to the convenience store to get (cheaper) bottled water. No complaints about the accommodations - the inner courtyard has a swimming pool and foliage. I strongly suggest getting a room that faces the courtyard (instead of the street) in order to avoid street noise.

Today was the day when Leandra had to step over her fear. Bullshark diving!
After some nice days of our little round trip we headed back to Playa del Carmen. With the dive shop Tank-Ha we had booked the today's tour in advanced. We decided us for this company as we knew that they don't feed the sharks - NO ENCOUNTER!
When we arrived we were hungry and needed some food before we went diving. Therefore we had ...
... for a payment booth, and relatively few visitors. It was a small Cenote, with only a few pools to brag of. The waters were still crystal clear and little fish nibbled at our feet when dipped in the water (mostly Dan's as Kate battled with - and overcame - her fear of little fish). There was a 25m long cave with depths that clearly connected into the underwater network, which made for some spectacular, and slightly scary snorkelling. The only ...
... people where whipping their foreheads and fanning themselves more and he handed out more invisible glasses of tequila that the participants would knock back. Then he told them the temperature was dropping and it was getting colder. People were rubbing their arms and snuggling up to the person next to them. The show continued on like this. It was quite amusing.
After the show we wandered around a bit more then headed back to our room to read, relax and blog.
... place of stalls, which were great fun, especially after a couple of cocktails! One of the bar men even offered to take our photo 'for their website and promo material' which was fine until he re-appeared five minutes later with our photo wrapped around a bottle of tequila and wanted us to buy it as a souvenir. Usually I would have point blank refused, insulted that he assumed we were just there to frivolously spend our dinero but I'm somehow a lot more generous after a ...
... shot, 3 shot, and I lost count. Fabio informed me we were all going to a live music bar at 12:30...we didn't return home until 5 am. Lets just say that I thought Canadians knew how to drink, and I was very very wrong. I kept up with Fernando thankfully, and we ended the night with a shot of cappuccino mescal each, which to my surprise, made me feel a lot better. As you can imagine, today is rest day. Tomorrow is more diving, and Monday is more diving. I might grow gills ...
