Travel Blogs from Playa del Carmen
Wake up, check out, lunch, and off to the airport. A whole day of flying as we have to go via Mexico City to Cancun where we booked Villas Sacbe, a small resort at Playas del Carmen that has some apartments with a small kitchen. We got the name of a good guide from the Internet. We will get in touch with him tomorrow to make arrangements for some …
