Decent place to stay, quite new, very nice pool/lounge area! Pretty close to the heart of the city, 3 blocks from City Square, the governor's palace and a huge market 3 blocks the other way. Only $55 US a night. There is a small restaurant and the front desk staff are great

... than just beans and tortillas (though most meals remain to be slight variations of the two)! We are hoping to put these new skills into good use when we have to cook for our fellow volunteers in Playa del Carmen. We are now about to jump onto another night bus to a place called Isla Holbox for some time at an actual beach with our fingers crossed for snorkeling with whale sharks off the coast. Hopefully we will have a whale shark update for you in our next blog post! Jim and Sian ...
... call that she had just had a cancelation for tomorrow but we would have to move our room for one night. OK? So early the next morning we were on our way to Cascadas de Merida.
