Meandering around Cancun was a bizarre experience. Las Vegas on the beach! You wouldn't know there was a beach from the road as the huge hotels, nightclubs and Americans dominate the area. We stayed in downtown Cancun where most of the locals live. It was charming if shabby. We used our almost non-existent Spanish to order vegetarian quesadillas for a bargain 50p at a local market. We gobbled them up while basking in the evening heat ...
... lizard to the bus terminal where we got some snacks and sort of figured out what we had to do. About 30 minutes of waiting and our local bus arrived. Unfortunately the nice air con buses only run first thing and overnight so local it was. We loaded the backpacks at the pack and squeezed into some pretty uncomfortable seats as the only foreigners on board. Luckily as we were leaving 4 latecomers joined, 2 Germans and 2 Dutch so we felt a little better. The bus was full with people standing ...
... del Carmen and Akumal is between these two so we jumped on board costing us 30 pesos each & approx 30min (£1.50).

I've been spending the afternoons relaxing watching the FIFA World Cup and siestering. Then later when it cools off riding to the beach and swimming. At ...
Last long bus trip, 12hrs to Tulum from Palenque. Meant to leave at 8.30 but got delayed for 2 hrs. Bree, Matt and I filled in our time trying to practice and learn Spanish, testing each other, being silly and with plenty of giggles. I slept almost the entire trip, waking up around 8.30am around an hour before arrival. We met 3 nice girls, a pommy, an Italian and Aleisha from Sydney who joined our group for quite a few days. Really lovely girl who travelled ...
