Travel Blogs from Playa del Carmen
Woke up with no hangover (my liver is definitely handling drinks way too well...). We had decided to splash out on the private transportation to Chichen Itza / Playa del Carmen so we got a nice bus for our last transfer. First stop was Chichen Itza (chicken pizza as Ernesto says...), wow whole different world, much more touristy than the previous ruins we had visited and pretty much full of cheesy American tourists.

... good bottle of French cabernet sauvignon to send us sleepily off on a wander around the pools before we crawl into bed. If the food continues in this vein then it'll be thumbs up for the all-inclusive experience. Let's hope our fellow guests don't prove themselves to be the flies in the ointment.
