    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.

    ... are not perverts. Well that's our story and were sticking to it. It was a great contest and all the girls fought hard to be crowned the winner. There wasn't an inch given by any of the contestants but in the end there could only be one winner and although the Argentinian pushed her hard the Venezuelan girl did just enough to sway the judges decision. I couldn't argue with it as well, she richly deserved it. Went to another club after that and had a great ...

    Our first stop for our last day together as a group was a place called Tulum. Apparently it's one of the things to do in playa del carmen as we got there and it was packed. The main attraction of Tulum is the Mayan ruins. Pretty similar to the ones we'd seen previously so most of us were not that bothered about them anymore. What we were waiting for though was the beach there. It was only about 200m long but was probably the most ...

    ... them, I would recommend going there for a school group definitely! And anyone going to mexico just because it exolains a lot about the to history and you learn a lot of interesting facts when you go there. We stayed at the ruins for a full day! The tour includes a lovely lunch you eat on the beach next to the ruins overlooking the crystal clear blue waters it was fabulous! We then after exploring the ruins for about 5 hours jumped on the bus ...

    ... country has to offer! Despite the disappointing end to such a spectacular trip, as we packed up our clothes we were excited about our first leg of our USA tour: Las Vegas!

    NOTE: after some digging around it seems that other holiday makers and travellers have been scammed by Yellow Transfers too in various ways from stealing money from people to not even turning up to pick up a prearranged transfer, so anyone going to Cancun airport would do well to avoid them ...

    ... we were taken into a cavern system with rooms as big as sports halls. Again, there was amazing rock formations and fossils being accentuated with natural lighting through shaft holes. All this natural beauty was only available to divers even though it was almost in touching distance for those on the surface.

    During lunch, the resident dog suddenly gave up begging for a taste of bocadillo and bolted into a clearing at the edge of the jungle. A ...
