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.

I woke up at 6:30am and took a shower and got ready. We are going on an excursion today and our bus is picking us up at 7:55am. We got downstairs for breakfast around 7:10 and ate a big breakfast. Bryce had a bagel with jam and lots of fruit and coffee. I had potatoes gratin, an omelet, fruit and bacon with orange juice. We finished eating and waited in the lobby for about 5 minutes before the bus pulled up. There was already 5 people in it so we took seats at the back. It ...

Some nice bus men pointed me in the direction of the busses (I wasn't sure whether to believe them ...

What a fight this fish put up. Lori thought it was a smaller one, as it started slow, and not fighting, then got a real big fight on. total time to bring in this fish, was around 20-25 minutes (i believe). Was it ever huge!!!! ...
We didn't have the best start to our time in Mexico. Firstly because we arrived a day late and when we arrived at the hotel they had given our room away and we had to find a new hotel (even though we emailed them!). It also rained for three days. So overall our impressions on Mexico wasn't great.
We met our group for the first part of the tour. Our tour guide is Victor who is from Guatemala. The names of the people in our group are Tomaz, Neya and Tjasa, the three ...
... and a credit card I knew would decline luckily the woman waived the $200US flight change fee.... I'm currently sitting in Toronto Airport, the right one! As I flew into the wrong one - luckily I had 10 hours to kill before my ride and it was only a simple ferry ride, bus trip, 2 train connections (well 3 if you count getting on the wrong train) and then another bus.. simple! I swear I have screwed up every flight I have ever booked.. or at least ended up changing it - ...
