          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 then headed to the Coba ruins, the main attraction being a pyramid at 126 feet, the tallest in the Yucatan. The steps are ridiculously steep and many people were choosing to crawl down. Due to wearing thongs and my propensity for clumsiness, I decided to give it a miss.

          and that brings me to now. Back in the hostel, I'm getting ready for an early night, and looking forward to a sleep in before I go snorkelling tomorrow. Hope you enjoy the blog and the pictures!

          A glass bottom boat took us to ' the 2nd biggest coral reef in the world' for snorkeling and it was supposed to be amazing, but it was a damp 'squid' It was fun though. There were some Mayan dancers on the beach front, very entertaining in their traditional dress, maked up and masks. Muriel did not notice one dancer did not wear anything under his short ...

Marie was much better and headed further out to find some fish but was only able to see one. Some of the tour group had spotted some turtles but we unfortunately didn't. After a rest on the beach we headed to a small place off the main road between Tulum and Playa ...

          ... 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 ...
