Could not have asked for better accomodations. Close to Playa Del Carmen shopping but secluded enough to feel like you are a world away from it all. Staff was helpful and friendly and rooms were perfect. Highly recommend to families or large groups.

We got closer to the place we were going and turned off the road. Our driver was giving us some information about the town we were driving through and when the road got less paved nd more bumpy he called it the "Mayan Massage". Free for everyone! haha. He talked about the flora ...
... hostel. It was sort of a Mexican thanksgiving, and it was a great time. We made pacadillos, which is a meat sauce with chicken or beef, then rice, and tortillas. I really enjoyed the quality time with everyone, and I will really miss Vive La Vida. Monday was my last day of Advanced Open Water Diving, so I am certified once again, but with more freedom! I can now do wreck dives, deep water dives (up to 40 metres), underwater navigation, I have mastered my ...
