      I stayed here for 8 nights for my 30th Birthday trip! It was a great experience, although we did end up going to the Riu Tequila after the hotel slowed down for the night! The pool was fantastic, very big, there were only a couple of times that it got crowded. It is a nice 15-20 minute walk into Playa Del Carmen (5th Avenue shopping and nightlife). The resort is in a guarded residential community with the entrance 2 minutes from 5th Avenue.

      ... We invented a new game (which we haven’t named yet) where one person would read a Spanish word from our phrase book, reveal a small clue and the other person has to guess the word. Whoever loses has to drink. It’s a great way to learn spanish and then forget it all by getting drunk! It’s fair to say our head-sized pina coladas didn’t last long, nor Lani asking if it was time for a cheeseburger from McDonalds…. Which we eventually got.

      Our first stop is snorkeling not far off the coast. Life jackets on because even though its relatively calm the current when you get into the water is one of the strongest I've ever felt. The coral and fishes are gorgeous and most of us spend a bit of time snorkeling and swimming.
      Back on the boat its time for breakfast and a champagne, beer, cocktail or whatever takes your fancy basically. Breakfast is ...

      ... drinks which led to us missing breakfast with them the next day. After our goodbyes, we headed off to our B&B for our final week in Mexico. Our last week was pretty uneventful. We split our time between the beach and pool, desperate to get a tiny bit of colour before Edinburgh! (It worked - even Ben said so.) We bought some excellently tacky souvenirs, ate lovely Mexican food and counted down the days until we could see our friends and ...

      ... trip to Caye Caulker. I was arriving with little knowledge which meant few expectations of Caye Caulker. So I was completely surprised when we climbed from the boat and discovered a melting point of real rusta Jamaican style guys, eagerly wanting to show you around or help you find a place to stay (at a cost of cause). The island was tiny, completely made up of sandy paths, no paved roads existed anywhere. After searching for hours online prior to arriving, we'd ...

      Christmas was spent on a roof top in pouring rain. It was actually a great experience. It was the roof of our destination managers' apartment, everyone was there (around 40 people) and when the rain was at its worst we simply went downstairs. Crowded, but social and fun. We played a traditional gift game which I first came across in Denmark. Everyone brings a small gift – or in this case two – at a set value. The gifts ...
