I was seriously worried about my two weeks in Playa when the weather report predicted thunderstorms solidly for a month, but fortunately, there were a few cloudy days and only two nights of rain which cooled down the place nicely. I got into my hostel and instantly knew that I will not leave it for at least a few days, my money is running low, and I just want to relax in the sun and soak it up all I can before I get back to good old cloudy Britain. So that's what I did for ...
... though just before we got out. We did just pop back in further up and saw loads and loads of fish by a bridge. We got changed and walked up to see the manatees then walked back to the exit to get our transport back. In the evening we saw the Mayan boat come up to light the torches and then had a band playing South American music. An early night after the buffet dinner as we were ...
... and did I mention madness (oh yes I did) all rolled into one. We were lucky enough to meet up with friends here in Matty McD and Amber as well as now local Coxy showing us the sights and giving some pretty good stories on an Aussie living in the big apple!

TravelPod Member ReviewsClubHotel Riu Tequila Playa del Carmen
The Riu Resorts had a lot to offer at a reasonable price. The Riu Tequila is set back from the beach so the price was more affordable than the beach resorts but the Tequila was only a leisurely ten minute walk from the beautiful white sand beaches and activities and included access to it's sister resorts on the beach, including food and swimming pools. The rooms were nice, the resorts offered entertainment and activities, it was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend the Riu Resorts and I would definitely stay there again.
