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.

... news. Not only was it a gorgeous turquoise and white beach hut that was clean and had hot water, wi-fi and heaps of space, it was $10 each for the night. Ridiculous!!! So we moved from Dirty Mcnasty's as soon as possible. The sun was absolutely pounding down so we spent the day literally doing laundry, chilling out & settling into the island lifestyle. Brayden was in the hut next door so we planned to have drinks & dinner later that evening. In the afternoon I ...
... of Quintana Roo. Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayas; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have been the cause of its demise. One ...
... flight in front of us. The flight felt like it went surprisingly fast. We were all spread out in the plane, but I sat only a row from Robin so we chatted a bit. Food was served several times, and they showed some decent movies. We landed in Cancun at around 17:00 local time, were driven to our apartments in Playa del Carmen. They deserve a chapter of their own, so I'll get back to them later. We had a first dinner together at a local restaurant and then fell instantly ...
